More Accurate Digital Impressions & A More Comfortable Patient Experience
How Does The iOC Scanner For Digital Impressions Work?
No more goop, gagging, or discomfort. Using an iOC™ scanner, our Parsippany orthodontist can take a highly accurate digital orthodontic impression for your braces. This new technology completely eliminates the tray and putty impressions where the experience is comparable to stuffing a big wad of gum in your patient’s mouth. The old technique is incredibly unpleasant and uncomfortable. Often multiple rounds of impressions are needed that can be rejected, broken, or misplaced. An iOC™ scanner ensures a more accurate impression from the start, resulting in improved orthodontic treatment and a more comfortable patient experience. Digital impressions also give the patient the ability to see their teeth instantly in 3D, improving communication during the consultation and treatment process.
The iTero scanner digitally captures the structure of the teeth and gums using the latest optical technology. The scanner is a compact, hand-held wand. Once Dr. Caggiano begins the scanning process, it can be stopped and started as many times as necessary. Your mouth is scanned with a radiation-free laser, and in as little as 2-3 minutes, the scanner renders a digitally perfect, 3-D impression of your teeth and soft tissue structures. Through digital software you’ll then be able to follow the progress of the scans, including a three-dimensional model of your teeth on our computer screen. The iOC scanner can be used for any orthodontic treatment, including traditional metal braces and clear aligner-based orthodontic systems.
