Intraoral cameras allow Dr. Kau to capture high-resolution images of the inside of a patient's mouth, aiding in diagnosis, patient education, and treatment planning. Intraoral scanners, such as the iTero system, create digital impressions of teeth and soft tissues, eliminating the need for traditional impression materials.

iTero® is a brand of intraoral scanners used in dentistry to create digital impressions of teeth and gums for various procedures, such as designing and manufacturing dental restorations like crowns, bridges, and aligners. These scanners are popular due to their accuracy, efficiency, and ability to streamline workflow by eliminating the need for traditional messy impression materials. There are several advantages to using an iTero scanner.

Accuracy: iTero scanners provide highly accurate digital impressions of the patient's teeth and gums, reducing the chances of errors often associated with traditional impression materials.

Comfort: Patients often find the iTero scanning process more comfortable than traditional impressions, eliminating the need for bulky trays and messy materials.

Efficiency: iTero scanners simplify the dental workflow by providing instant digital impressions for immediate treatment planning, eliminating the time-consuming waiting process for traditional impressions to be set and shipped to dental labs.

Improved Communication: Digital impressions generated by iTero scanners can be easily shared with dental laboratories, specialists, or other healthcare providers, facilitating better communication and collaboration among dental teams.

Better Patient Experience: Patients appreciate the convenience and comfort of iTero scanning, which can contribute to a more positive overall dental experience and increased patient satisfaction.

Customized Treatment Planning: Dr. Kau can use the iTero digital impressions to create personalized treatment plans and more effectively discuss treatment options with patients, leading to better treatment outcomes.

Versatility: iTero scanners are versatile and can be used for a wide range of dental procedures, such as restorative dentistry, orthodontics (e.g., Invisalign), implant planning, and smile design.
