Intraoral Scanner

If you’ve ever had an impression taken of your mouth, you know it can be an uncomfortable experience. Many people with a sensitive gag reflex find this method of taking impressions absolutely untenable. Moreover, the impressions obtained from these traditional methods are simply not the most accurate.

At Carr Orthodontics, we can take a digital scan of your mouth with the iTero Intraoral Scanner. This is an extremely precise picture of your mouth that allows us to see your gums, teeth, and other oral structures.

Because we get a much more accurate picture of your mouth, we are able to create dental work that fits perfectly and feels comfortable. There are a number of benefits to using the intraoral scanner, including the following:

  • Efficiency | With the intraoral scanner, we can take a series of quick photos of your mouth, and you’re out of the chair in no time.
  • Comfort | It’s definitely uncomfortable to sit in a dentist chair with a mouthful of cement, holding perfectly still, waiting for your impression to finish. This process is completely eliminated with the iTero scanner.
  • Convenience | We can easily send these digital scans to those who need them— labs, other dental offices, insurance companies. This helps with coordinating both payments and treatments.
  • Better for the environment | We no longer have to use cement, paper, or other materials when creating impressions, which helps us eliminate waste and is more eco-friendly.

I-CAT 3D X-Ray

Because of our commitment to you, we now use the i-CAT FLX 3D system, which enables us to take detailed three-dimensional pictures of your mouth. You’ll be exposed to far less radiation than with traditional two-dimensional orthodontic radiographs.

We’re excited about this technology because we know it will contribute to your safety and comfort. It takes less than five seconds to complete a scan. This means we don’t need to take several images, and you spend less time sitting in front of an x-ray machine.

Finally, because of its highly accurate images, this technology means we give you a more accurate diagnosis. We’re able to better understand what’s going on with your teeth, jaw, and other oral structures.
