iTero 3D Scanner Process
The process is easy and quick. First, Dr. DeQuattro or one of our dental team members will use the wand of the scanner to capture the images of your tooth surfaces and gum tissues. The wand doesn’t use radiation, only visible light.
As we scan your teeth, you’ll be able to see real-time images of your teeth as it’s digitally built-in real-time. This eliminates the need for retakes, a step that was necessary for X-rays. The images become a 3D model which Dr. DeQuattro will use to plan and create your personalized treatment plan.
