Dental Technology in Metrotown
iTero Scanner Technology
Previously, dental clinics were required to take plaster moulds of your teeth to use for treatment planning. Today, our clinic has welcomed a much less invasive and modern technology into our practice. The iTero scanner allows us to capture and view three-dimensional images of your teeth in as little as a few minutes.
What Does it Do?
Digital renderings created by the iTero scanner are highly accurate and detailed. Using a wand the moves around the teeth and mouth, the scanner captures images and compiles them into 3D renderings that can be viewed on a computer screen. The result is a “map” of the mouth that can be used for your dental treatment planning, including Invisalign.
