The Dental Studio appoints cutting-edge scanning technology

In order to provide you with the best possible dental treatment, we constantly research and test the latest technology and equipment to ensure you receive the best results. Our latest addition is the 3D iTero oral scanner, a highly efficient system with integrated scanning equipment.

Digital scanning is the most recent in teeth straightening technology, this high-precision scanner captures thousands of images, automatically piecing the images together to produce a perfectly accurate 3D image of your teeth and gums, permitting your dentist to accurately assess and diagnose multiple conditions and recommend the right treatment. The scanner will instantly show patients what their teeth could look like after fixed braces or Invisalign clear removable braces, which is a great for patients considering straightening their teeth.

The iTero scanner makes diagnosing dental and oral health problems faster, more accurate, and painless. It also allows us to create tooth restorations without the unpleasant process traditionally used to take impressions. The iTero scanner provides our patients with a more comfortable experience with no need for trays, dental putty, and gagging associated with older impression methods.

The mouth is scanned with a small, comfortable, radiation-free laser in just moments, producing a perfect 3D impression of your teeth and gums for a completely accurate model. This digital impression is used to create perfect restorations including crowns, veneers, bridges, implants that fit and look exactly as they should.

Not only that, but our team can use this innovative new technology as opposed to messy, gag-inducing impressions used to take records for a new crown, bridge or veneers, providing the dental technician with an extremely accurate record of your teeth. This means the fit of your new restorations will be better than ever.

Martina Hodgson, Principal Dentist at The Dental Studio comments on receiving the scanner ‘’This week we were super excited to receive a very special delivery at the practice. My receptionist Kelly came into my surgery and said, “Martina, it’s Christmas!”

Martina continues ‘’My new pride and joy – an advanced 3D iTero oral scanner, capable of taking exceptionally accurate 3D records of your teeth, without the gloop and gagging associated with traditional impression, I was ecstatic and couldn’t wait to use it.’’

The scanner is completely safe, comfortable and the whole process takes just 7-10 minutes, about the same time it would take for normal impressions, only this time there is no need for retakes if the impression needs adjusting, the scanner gets it right first time, every time! The scan is done using a wand that fits comfortably in your mouth, making the whole procedure quick and painless.
