iTero 3D Scanner Process
Using our iTero 3D Scanner is quick and easy! First, Dr.DeQuattro or one of our trained dental team will use the scanner’s wand to capture images of your teeth, including all tooth surfaces and gum tissues. This iTero 3D Scanner wand does not use radiation; only visible light.
As we scan your teeth, you’ll be able to instantaneously see digital images of your teeth. This eliminates the need for retakes; a step that was often necessary when taking impressions and/or X-rays. These images become a 3D model which Dr.Dequattro will use to create your personalized treatment plan.
