This blog is all about impressions. We’re not talking about that feeling you get when you first meet someone. Our newest blog is definitively devoted to dental impressions. This is about the stuff dentistry dreams are made of, relying on outstanding, innovative technology to create your new or refreshed look. You’ll surely leave others with a lasting impression from your more confident smile.
What if we told you high-tech, comfortable computer technology, much the same as elsewhere in our medical communities, has revolutionized how we take impressions of your teeth? Forget thick putty and that sticky impression material you might have experienced in the past. Your dentist attempted to create a replica of your teeth and bite but didn’t have the right tools.
This is where you’re introduced to Dr. Drew Addy and his dedication to state-of-the-art technology. Get ready to meet our iTero digital scanner and impression system — your new way to experience comfort at our Carlsbad dental office.
(Read our blog to learn more about iTero’s many benefits. You’ll have no choice but to believe the hype.)
There’s No Excuse Not to Love iTero Technology
The iTero is an intraoral digital scanner that can capture lifelike, 3-D imagery of your teeth and mouth in minutes. Dr. Addy uses a small wand to scan throughout your mouth, even in hard-to-reach places, for more detailed imaging and innovative care than ever before. Forget about the messy traditional impressions. They usually involved an unpleasant, goopy substance that was the go-to method for collecting a copy of your bite, used to create restorations such as dental crowns. It also helps Dr. Addy with more precise treatment planning. With iTero, you won’t have to wait for the results to be sent to an off-site lab and subsequent follow-up visits with us. One little wand can save you a big amount of time!
Results and Accuracy You Can Immediately See
What’s even more impressive is that iTero scanning delivers immediate results. This allows you to see the same image alongside Dr. Addy simultaneously, in real-time. This process is approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and generally takes about 10 to 15 minutes to scan your entire mouth. Say goodbye to the old impression process for good and worrying about your sensitive gag reflex. Turn around time is also minimized with iTero, and enhanced precision leads to more comfortable, accurate results and restorations.
