Digital Scanners and You!
Dr. Neal has equipped his office with a new iTero digital
scanner. What, you may be asking yourself, is a digital scanner and what does it do?
The official definition for an intraoral scanner is a device for capturing direct optical impressions in dentistry. The scanner emits a light beam, either a blue LED or a laser, onto the area to be scanned, the images are captured and processed by scanning software, which then produces a 3D model. The digital scan is
more detailed than the traditional two-dimensional images.
Intraoral digital scans create accurate physical dental models for restorative work, including crowns, veneers, and implants. The scan is faster, producing an impression in 6-8 minutes. Best
of all there is no longer any need for trays of goop in your
mouth and nothing to spit out afterwards.
Digital scanners are completely safe with no side effects. Because the scanner uses a beam of light, there is no radiation involved.
If you have been putting off restorative dental work because
you don't like the mouth full of nasty stuff and you don't want to wait for technician to make your plaster cast, Dr. Neal's digital scanner will make your work go faster and easier. Call Dr. Neal's office for an appointment today and restore your smile.
