If you are on a quest for that perfect smile, you don’t have to look any further when you drop by for an appointment with Dr. Sam Gupta and the friendly team at Mount Royal Dental in Burlington, Ontario. At Mount Royal Dental, intraoral scanning is performed using the iTero scanning technology, which is quickly becoming the industry standard thanks to its ability to produce incredibly detailed three-dimensional scans of your teeth and gums. Intraoral scanning is a method in which three-dimensional images of your mouth are produced so that detailed and accurate dental models can be used to diagnose and treat patients.
Gone are the days of goop, gagging, and discomfort when impressions of your teeth or jaw are needed. Using the patented iTero scanner, your dentist can take an incredibly accurate digital impression without having to place an impression tray full of goop in your mouth. This traditional technique can cause mouth and jaw discomfort, all the while making you feel like you’ve got a mouth full of gum. Not only is this ageing impression method uncomfortable, you often need to go through multiple rounds, which can then be broken, rejected, or misplaced. The iTero digital scanner is a compact, handheld wand that will not cause discomfort.
Using the latest in optical technology, the iTero scanner is able to construct a three-dimensional digital model of your teeth and gums with the use of a light-emitting wand or laser. With this radiation-free laser, your mouth can be completely scanned in just two to three minutes. What results is a perfect digital three-dimensional impression of your teeth and surrounding soft tissue structures. Using digital software, you get to follow the progress of these scans as they are displayed on a nearby monitor. These digital models can then be used for a number of treatments, including Invisalign.
