Cadent iTero : Digital Impression System

Posted in Dental News by UK Dental Tourism on February 20, 2010

The Cadent iTero is a digital imaging system that eliminates the need for impressions for fixed prosthetics. The penetration in dentistry of these types of devices is pretty low currently, but we can foresee big things for the iTero.

The Cadent iTero digital impression system takes a highly accurate virtual 3d impression of patients’ crown or bridge area, ensuring an accurate model quickly, eliminating the uncomfortable tray and putty impression.It features parallel confocal imaging,which uses laser and opticl scanning to digitally capture the surface and contours of toothand gingival surfaces.The iTero software guides users through every step of scanning process.The time to complete the scanning sequence routinely requires just 3 to 5 minutes.And with no time devoted to preparing impression trays or clean up, the time saving is predictable.Most importantly the unmatched precision of iTero crowns requires minimal adjustment. Infact 90% of their restorations are being seated with no adjustments.That is a huge advantage over traditional methodologies. If that proves to be the case, we will begin to shrink our impression material inventory.

Patient acceptance? Outstanding. Not having to suffer through impressions is a big plus for patients.With iTero patients become engaged in the process as they see their dental work on screen.Biggest of all ,the expenses and hassles associted with putty and trays will be a thing of the past as digital impressions eliminate the need for mixing materials.
