You Won’t Believe What This New Equipment Does
Can you imagine how excited a cook might get over a high-tech kitchen appliance or how a carpenter would grin from ear to ear while using a new wood saw? Well, dentists like us are just as thrilled when we add a new piece of technology to our practice! Not only does the latest cutting-edge dental tool make our work more efficient, it delivers an exceptional experience for patients like you. In fact, we just added a new tool to our practice that will do just that. Read more to find out what this latest piece of technology provides patients.
Do you remember when you used to have to bite into goopy putty in order for the dentist to get an impression of your teeth? Yuck! Those days are gone thanks to our newest piece of technology, the iTero scanner. The iTero is an intraoral scanner, which means that it uses optical and laser scanning inside your mouth to achieve precise images. Not only that, it delivers them in color. The images are delivered in as little as 60 seconds, saving you time in our chair. It also produces a better quality image that allows us to diagnose and recommend treatments more effectively.
The software that comes along with the scanner is even more remarkable. It compares your dental images over time to help us visualize tooth wear or gum changes. This reduces the chances of a dental condition slipping past our notice. We’ll be able to spot problems at the earliest signs — you can be confident your dental health is being carefully monitored.
We love to share these updates with patients because we make these investments for you. Not only does it help us deliver a higher level of dental care, it provides a much more comfortable dental experience. Next time you are in the office and you’d like to learn more about the iTero scanner or our other technology, let us know. We’d be thrilled to talk to you about it!
