We use the most advanced dental technology because this is as important as staying up-to-date on the newest treatment techniques. We are dedicated to offering the safest and most convenient treatment options, so we use advanced digital X-ray technology and the iTero® Digital Impression System in our practice.
The advanced imaging options available with digital X-rays provide clearer dental photos while exposing patients to less radiation than traditional X-ray technology.
iTero® Digital Impression System
We can take a highly accurate digital impression of your teeth and jaw using an iTero scanner. You won’t have to deal with any more goop, gagging, or discomfort! This technology gets rid of the tray and putty impressions that often feel like stuffing a big wad of gum in your mouth. Not only is the old technique unpleasant, it often results in having to take multiple rounds of impressions that can be rejected, broken, or misplaced.
In contrast, the iTero scanner provides an accurate impression from the beginning which improves treatment and provides a more comfortable experience for our patients. Additionally, digital impressions help you see your teeth in 3D instantly which helps during the consultation and treatment process.
How It Works
Our digital impression scanner is a small, hand-held wand that captures the structure of your teeth and gums by using the latest optical technology. Once Dr. Cochran begins to scan, she can stop and start as many times as needed.
Your teeth and gums are scanned using a radiation-free laser that renders a digitally perfect, 3D impression of your teeth and soft tissue structures in as little as two to three minutes. Through digital software, you’ll be able to see the progress of the scans, which includes a 3D model of your teeth on our computer screen.
We want to make your experience with us as comfortable as possible. Do you have any questions about our dental technology? Let us know at your next appointment!
