At Pitrone, Sorkin and Jarvis Orthodontics we believe that our patients deserve nothing but the best when it comes to comprehensive orthodontic care. This is among the primary reasons that our practice utilizes the revolutionary technology of the iTero intraoral scanner. The benefits of this powerful new tool are innumerable, making your appointments and your treatment more comfortable.
Previously, taking measurements of the structures with your oral cavity required taking time consuming, uncomfortable impressions with gooey, messy materials. Patients with sensitive gag reflexes, who may have hesitated before to receive the treatment they need, are now able to undergo the digital impression process quickly and entirely comfortably. Full benefits of the iTero scanner include the following:
- Digital Impressions taken with the iTero scanner can be viewed as a 3D model on a chair side monitor, easily seen by both doctor and patient
- No “goopy” impression material or putty – no unpleasant taste, no gagging, and patient can breathe and swallow comfortably during the scan
- Scanning is completely safe, with no exposure to radiation
