iTero Digital Scanner
An intraoral scanner, or a dental scanner, is a device used to capture a direct optical impression. Through images captured by scanning software, a 3D surface model of your mouth can be produced, making it easier to determine the kind of dental work you’ll need and spot any issues you might have.
At Hickman Family Dental, we use the revolutionary iTero Digital Scanner. This scanner produces the most detailed 3D scans of any scanner currently on the market, and the difference is noticeable.
The iTero scanner uses a laser to scan your mouth, creating a digital 3D impression. This laser is much smaller than the lasers of previous intraoral scanners, which allows for a more precise, complete scan. The smaller laser size also means you won’t have to open your mouth in an uncomfortable manner during your scan.
iTero scanners also allow for real-time simulations. In just 90 seconds, your dental technician will have a complete digital impression of your mouth. The real-time image can also be enlarged and manipulated for enhanced detail.
