iTero Intraoral Scanner
If you have ever received a crown or restoration, you know how lengthy and uncomfortable the manual impression process can be. Thanks to the iTero intraoral scanner, that process is becoming a thing of the past. This scanner quickly captures precise digital impressions of a patient’s mouth — no uncomfortable impression trays required! Plus, unlike other digital impression tools, the scanning wand is quite small, and we don’t have to coat the teeth with a messy powder. The iTero machine is particularly notable for its compatibility with Invisalign. This remarkable technology streamlines the Invisalign process, and its software can even help you visualize your treatment’s outcome.
Digidoc Intraoral Cameras
You may not realize it, but intraoral photos have dramatically improved our ability to educate patients about their current state of oral health and clearly explain their treatment options while pointing out the affected area on the image. With the ability to present photographic images chairside, Dr. Iverson is able to provide patients with a more complete understanding of their oral health needs, which allows them to feel more confident in their choice of treatment.
Unlike traditional dental x-rays, digital radiography allows us to capture crystal-clear images of patients’ oral and facial structures and view them on chairside computer monitors. These digital images are instantly transferable to patients, specialists, insurance providers, and dental labs as necessary. This has allowed us to significantly reduce treatment time. Best of all, patients are exposed to 90% less radiation, making digital x-rays much safer with higher quality images than their traditional film counterparts. Because we can view and enhance images at the patients’ chairside, they are also a more accurate treatment planning tool.
DIAGNOdent Laser-Assisted Cavity Detection
Digital x-rays allow us to see the earliest indicators of cavities, but DIAGNOdent takes that a step further by giving us the ability to detect areas of the tooth that are the highest risk for cavities before they ever start. DIAGNOdent uses a laser to measure the density of teeth by targeting and measuring changes in pigmentation or tissue density. The DIAGNOdent laser is a measurement tool that indicates tooth decay at its earliest stages allowing for the most conservative treatment possible.
