Itero Digital Scanner… more messy goop and gagging!

Dr. Jordan Pettigrew

I love this technology.  I always knew playing video games as a child would pay off.  For the past 6 months we have been using the Itero digital scanner in our practice.  At this point we are using the scanner for the creation of precise fitting crowns, bridges and implant restorations.  In the future we will be able to really get immersed in this technology with the ability to merge scans with cone beam radiography to create surgical stents for implant surgery.  These are exciting times in dentistry!  Check out the Itero Scanner!
If you remember getting impressions for a crown or appliance, you will remember the goopy material that would be used to create the impression.  These impressions, while effective,  were messy and if you had a severe gag reflex they could cause some undue stress to the patient and dentist.  This is all eliminated with the use of the Itero scanner!
