iTero Digital Scanner
iTero scanners are used to create 3D digital versions of traditional dental impressions. The technology is less invasive than traditional methods for treatment planning and creating dental appliances. iTero scanners are often used in dental practices that offer Invisalign aligners.
Intraoral (inside the mouth) cameras take high-resolution images of the teeth and mouth using a small camera. In most cases, after the images are captured, an imaging software (such as computer-aided design or computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) applications) is used to piece hundreds of images together to create a digital 3D model of the intraoral cavity.
Dentists can use the cameras (also sometimes called scanners) for different purposes and to capture different types of images. For example, a single tooth that requires a restorative procedure could be enlarged on its own. The camera could also be used to create images of a full arch or both arches of teeth. Finally, a dentist or periodontist may use intraoral cameras to capture images of the soft tissues of the mouth, such as the gums and soft palate.
