At Parkway Vista Dental, we are committed to designing beautiful smiles for our patients. To provide high-quality results, we embrace the latest technological advancements to deliver superior dental care. One piece of technology you will benefit from at our modern dental practice is the iTero Digital Scanner. As a dentist in Plano, we use the groundbreaking digital scanner to improve the patient experience to ensure a higher quality outcome. Now, you no longer have to deal with messy and uncomfortable impressions. The iTero Digital Scanner gives us the detailed information we need without the hassle of traditional impressions.
Benefit from the iTero Digital Scanner
As a revolutionary new technology for taking images and impressions, the scanner has been used in more than 1.2 million restorative procedures, including dental implants, crowns, and bridges. It creates a higher level of precision for less errors. Traditional PVS (poly-vinyl siloxane) impressions have a rejection rate of roughly 4%, while the scanner’s rejection rate is less than .4%. In addition to restorative dentistry, the scanner offers a higher level of accuracy for patients undergoing Invisalign treatment. More than 1 million Invisalign cases have already used the scanner as it is 50% faster than traditional methods. Not to mention, there are 10 times fewer rejections while producing 7 times less fitting issues when used for Invisalign.
The 3D digital scans allow us to quickly see your teeth and bite, while giving us the capability to make adjustments in real-time. With increased efficiency, your appointment length decreases because the images are available to view instantly to provide faster, more personalized treatment. You will not have to wait for impressions to set up or x-ray films to develop. Plus, the scanner is linked to integrated software, making record documentation of the scans and developing treatment plans easier.
You will be scanned using a small, hand-held device. Then, the information is sent digitally to the in-office software for viewing to create your treatment plan. Since the scanner uses digital imagery, you are also exposed to less radiation than that of traditional imaging equipment. In fact, the amount of radiation exposure with digital imaging can be less than 10% when compared to the exposure of traditional x-rays.
