Dental Technology at Lake Chaparral Dental Care
At Lake Chaparral Dental Care, we strive to remain on the leading edge of dental technologies and treatments. Please look at some of the state-of-the-art dental technologies we currently utilize in our safe and effective dental treatments.
If you have been looking for a way to achieve that perfect smile, your quest ends here. We are thrilled to introduce the revolutionary iTero intraoral scanner at Lake Chaparral Dental Care. The iTero scanner produces the most detailed three-dimensional scans currently available on the market that can be used to create your Invisalign clear aligners.
Utilizing a hand-held light-emitting wand, we can comfortably run it through your mouth to create a highly-detailed and accurate three-dimensional impression of your mouth, teeth, and gums. Thanks to the ever-evolving nature of dental technology, the wands we use today are significantly smaller than those used in years past, making it easy for Dr. Sharma to accurately scan your mouth while making it comfortable for our patients. The iTero wand is small enough to reach even the farthest molars. The small size of the wand also means you do not have to open your mouth as wide, making it a more pleasant experience. The flexibility offered by the iTero wand means greater detail can be captured during each scan.
iTero scanners also provide real-time simulations. This means you get a visual look at your digital impression being created as the wand moves through your mouth. This simulation makes patients feel like they have a bigger role and increased control in the process. Once your highly-detailed and accurate scan is complete, it can be sent in for your clear aligners to be created.
Because the scanning process is easier and more comfortable for the patients, it is an excellent option for patients of all ages who require a digital scan to be made. iTero intraoral scans are not just great for the creation of Invisalign aligners but also for:
- Creation of dentures
- Creation of dental crowns
- Preparation for oral surgery
- Dental records
