Dr. Scott Burke, D.M.D, one of the dentists at Restorative and Aesthetic, praised the new patient experience. “Many patients really dislike the old process of making impressions – carefully drying their teeth, inserting the impression material, and keeping it in their mouth for 3 minutes. The Itero replaces that entire process and patients are very pleased with the results.”
The Itero machine is made by Cadent, Inc. and has been on the market for 3 years. But Restorative and Aesthetic is the first Maine dental office to acquire the Itero technology. Another partner in the practice, Dr. Leigh Philbrick, D.M.D., commented “We are committed to the use of technology to improve patient results and overall experiences.”
Most dental offices in the state use gummy impression materials to develop molds for the creation of crowns, implants, bridges, and other restorative products. They then send the impressions or models to an offsite dental lab, (often out of state), to create the actual crown. Or in some cases they use milling machines which lack precision and accuracy to manufacture crowns. Restorative and Aesthetic will still hand make all crowns and restorative products in their high quality, on-site lab. Dr. Tom Corwin, D.D.S., reaffirmed the practice’s commitment to quality “The Itero imaging solution has been a fantastic tool for improving the imaging process but there isn’t a machine yet that can match the quality of our lab’s restoration work. Patients can be assured that our lab technicians and dentist will continue to provide the quality they are accustomed to.”
