At East Texas Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we are committed to providing our patients with the latest advancements in dental technology. That's why we proudly utilize the iTero digital scanner, a state-of-the-art tool that revolutionizes the way we capture dental impressions.

The iTero digital scanner is a cutting-edge device that eliminates the need for traditional putty-based impressions. Instead, it uses advanced digital imaging technology to create precise, 3D digital impressions of the teeth and oral structures. This innovative technology offers a more comfortable and efficient experience for our patients.

During the scanning process, a small, handheld wand is used to capture detailed images of the teeth and surrounding tissues. These images are instantly rendered into highly accurate digital impressions, providing a virtual replica of the patient's oral anatomy.

The benefits of the iTero digital scanner are numerous. Firstly, it eliminates the discomfort and mess associated with traditional impression materials. Patients no longer have to endure the unpleasant taste or gag reflex often associated with traditional impressions. Additionally, digital impressions can be captured in a matter of minutes, reducing chair time and enhancing overall efficiency.

The iTero scanner also offers enhanced accuracy, ensuring precise treatment planning and better-fitting appliances and hardware. It allows our team to visualize the patient's oral structures in remarkable detail, improving communication and collaboration with other dental professionals and engineers involved in the treatment planning process.

Whether we are planning for dental implants, corrective jaw surgery, or other reconstructive surgeries, the iTero digital scanner enables us to provide personalized and optimal care for our patients. It enhances treatment outcomes by ensuring a precise fit, improved comfort, and reduced need for adjustments.
