When you need dental appliances to be created with exacting precision, the solutions you’re looking for are at TrueCare Dentistry in Cary, NC. Our dental professionals are proud to welcome a new member to our practice: the iTero scanner. The scanner’s wand fits gently inside your mouth for a powder-free process that allows dentists and oral hygienists to get the perfect snapshot of your teeth, gums and smile, capturing the entire view instead of piecemeal sections.
The iTero wand connects to a special screen that allows dentists to see models of your mouth in real time, allowing for quicker diagnoses and recommendations for the next step of your dental care process. The diagnostic imaging system also works in tandem with an Invisalign Outcome Simulator to show precisely how the Invisalign appliances could assist you and your smile, all with the literal wave of a wand.
iTero is ideal for allowing us to take impressions of your mouth for oral devices as well. The scanner creates a map of the inside of your mouth in as little as five minutes, allowing for a comprehensive picture of any oral issues, without uncomfortable trays or flaky plaster.
Additionally, iTero helps the team at TrueCare Dentistry see how you could potentially benefit from oral appliances, such as the following options that are available from our dental practice:
- Dental implants
- Crowns and bridges
This digitized scanning allows for greater accuracy and drastically cuts down on resizing appointments for any oral devices, including inlays and onlays. That’s because it allows dentists to directly compare your complex imaging to any restoration models they may be working on that require exacting precision.
At TrueCare, we don’t believe in just handing you a diagnosis and sending you out the door. We understand that knowledge is a key component in your dental care plan, and the iTero scanner helps us accomplish just that. Our 3-D scanner pulls right up next to the patient, so they can see what the dentist sees at the exact same time. That means we’ll be able to explain certain recommendations to you right on the spot, instead of waiting for other diagnostic imaging techniques.
If you are in need of an oral appliance, there is no better source for education, top-notch care and quality products than at TrueCare Dentistry. Call our Cary dental office at 919.859.1330 or visit our contact page to learn more about our other services.
