New Scanning Technology at Baer Dental

Baer Dental has acquired one of the most advanced scanning technologies in dentistry today, which is called the Intra-oral scanner, powered by iTero. The technology will provide a new level of convenience and accuracy for orthodontic patients. One of the common concerns among patients is that taking a dental impression is an invasive procedure, which they would like to avoid if they could.

With the new advanced iTero intra-oral scanner, it would be possible to treat a majority of orthodontic patients without the need for dental impressions. Patients who are in need of traditional braces or Invisalign, as well as other patients whose treatment involves dental impressions, will be able to benefit from this technology.

Superior Accuracy

A cosmetic dentist will be able to achieve more effective results only if the dental impressions are highly accurate. As one of the leading dentists for patients in Aurora, Parker, Centennial, Denver, Elizabeth and Franktown, CO, Dr. Baer has adopted the advanced iTero intra-oral scanning technology to achieve superior accuracy of results.

Digital impressions acquired through this state of the art intra oral scanner are capable of delivering more consistent and superior outcomes. Not only the patient, but also the dentist as well as the technicians at the dental lab can experience better convenience with this automated solution. The technology also facilitates electronic communication with referring doctors and patients.

iTero Intra-Oral Scanner

The scanner technique is easy to master, which effectively means fewer retakes for the patient. Computer prompts will guide the operator regarding which areas need to be scanned, and a software program weaves the multiple scans together. A real-time model can then be viewed by the dentist.

If any areas were omitted in the scanning process, they can be re-captured quickly, avoiding any need for a repeat appointment due to inadequate impressions. Full mouth scanning duration will range between 15 and 30 minutes, depending on the number of teeth that need to be scanned.

Higher Efficiency

Due to increased accuracy compared to PVS impressions, the iTero intra oral scanner ensures more efficient operation in terms of fitting aligners and providing dental restorations. The rejection rate of intra oral scans is one-tenth of PVS impressions, with seven times fewer fit issues.

Due to higher efficiency, restorative dentists are able to save about 28 to 38 minutes per patient. Every element and material found in the mouth is captured accurately and patient experience is much improved. The technology provides exclusive Invisalign connectivity, and is well suited for C&B, implants, and orthodontics.
