Indianapolis, Indiana (PRWEB) April 30, 2012
Here’s something to smile about: Indy Smiles dental offices in Indianapolis, Indiana is using a new technology that helps take some of the discomfort out of dental visits.
Indy Smiles is now using the Cadent iTero 3D digital dental impression scanner: The latest, state-of-the-art piece of equipment which makes extremely accurate dental impressions --- and makes the process much more comfortable for patients. No more of the messy goop, which often causes gagging and discomfort among dental patients.
Dr. Gary Llewellyn and Dr. Zachary Campano at Indy Smiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, will be using the digital impression scanner mostly when making crowns, bridges, implant crowns, and Invisalign Clear Othodontics. Accurate dental impressions are the major factor in getting the best outcome for patients.
“Patients who are getting their dental impressions made will be much more comfortable when we take impressions with this digital scanner than they would using the conventional method,” Dr. Llewellyn said.
“Another neat thing is that we can give the patients an idea what their teeth will look like,” Dr. Llewellyn added. “We can actually show patients about a 98% result --- the on-screen images of their teeth actually morph, in front of their eyes, into how it will look after the dental procedures are completed.”
Another benefit this digital system has for dental patients is that the impressions made with this digital system are extremely accurate --- eliminating the shortcomings and general margins of error associated with impressions made the traditional way.
Dentists using this equipment will always have access to the records if the iTero system sustains damage. Image records made with this digital scanner are backed up onto a secure server owned and maintained by Cadent.
The iTero technology was recently purchased by Align Technology, developer of Invisalign Clear Braces. Invisalign is well known for being the braces choice of many popular entertainers such as Tom Cruise. Dr. Llewellyn has been a “Premier Provider” of Invisalign Clear Braces for over six years.
