Digital dental impressions with our new scanner

29th October 2017

Bow Lane Dental has invested in a iTero Digital scanner. Some of our patients say they hate having impressions so have a solution. So what does that mean to you?

  • No messy impressions
  • Faster
  • Prevent gagging
  • More accurate
  • Eco-friendly as no disposable plastic trays and impression materials

Previously the only way to obtain a model of your teeth was by taking impressions using a putty type material –which can be a messy experience and take a couple of minutes to set in the mouth.

With 3D optical scanning, a small wand-shaped device is waved around the mouth to take 3D scans of the teeth. The process is completely mess free, comfortable, accurate and a faster method of taking impressions. The scanner takes thousands of digital photographs your mouth in 3D, the digital file is then securely sent to our laboratory. For Invisalign it means your Clincheck comes back faster and the aligners are delivered days earlier as no more waiting for the post. One of the greatest benefit of the iTero digital scanner is that you can see what your teeth will look like once they are straightened before you’ve even started treatment.

Ask your Bow Lane dentist to see your mouth in 3D. This 3D scanner is only the start of CAD/CAM dentistry.

*Currently not all dental procedures are suitable for optical scanning but they are working on it.
