In the old days of taking impressions, a goopy impression material was placed in the patient’s mouth and allowed to set for about 5 minutes. The days of goopy impression materials are now gone. West Bowmanville Family Dental proudly uses one of the most advanced 3D oral scanners on the market to take a digital impression of the patient’s teeth and bite. This new technology uses a radiation-free laser to scan the teeth.The end result is a better fitting and more accurate restoration. This technology can also be used for scanning crowns, bridges, dental implants and Invisalign invisible braces cases.
The digital scan is a perfect duplicate of your mouth, which is sent electronically to the lab and ceramic technician so that a precise fitting restoration is made. We are proud to be one of a select few practices in Canada that has adopted the iTero digital impression technology system.
