What is iTero?
iTero is cutting edge technology that makes an excellent – and pleasant – first impression. iTero allows our doctors to take a completely digital 3D impression (no gooey impression goop!) of your teeth and bite.
The iTero Scanner
The iTero scanner enables our doctors to get an extremely precise, digital 3D image of the individual elements of your tooth surfaces and gum tissue.
One Less Reason to Hate the Dentist – It’s Comfortable!
The list of reasons that patients have for disliking a visit to the dentist is getting shorter and shorter in our office! At Slave Lake Dental we have eliminated the messy traditional impressions from that list with the iTero. Not only is the iTero more comfortable than traditional impressions, but taking a digital scan is really fast. This means that you can remain comfortable while we capture the detailed imagery and you won’t have to deal with the putty-filled mess that can make many patients gag or the possibility of having to retake impressions. Furthermore, because the impression is digital it can be stopped and started whenever you decide and the sophisticated technology will simply piece the images together.
