iTero® Element™ Intraoral Scanner
The iTero® Element Scanner is a digital impression system that replaces putty impressions. With our iTero® Element Scanner, we can digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. This process eliminates the mess of putty based impressions. The result is an accurate image of your teeth that can be used to construct crowns, whitening trays and Invisalign® clear aligners. You may never need to feel the uncomfortable gagging of a dental impression again!
For Invisalign® clear aligners, Dr. MacDonald creates a 3D image of your teeth using an iTero® scanner within minutes. The scan of your teeth is then is sent to the Invisalign® team to fabricate your custom-made clear aligners. We can even create an outcome simulator which allows you to see your new smile before you start your treatment.
3-D dental IMAGING
This technology allows us to capture 3D views of your teeth. We can access detailed information from every angle to diagnose and plan your dental treatment needs.
digital RADIATION x-rays
Digital radiography (digital x-ray) uses an electronic sensor (instead of x-ray film) to capture and store a digital image in your chart. This image can be instantly viewed and enlarged, helping our dentist and dental hygienist detect current conditions and potential problems.
