Digital scanner and impressions available at Grand Dental Arts
Dr. Colleen Williamson is a quality dentist in the Toms River, New Jersey community who is here to help patients in and around the area with their oral health needs. In addition to having years of experience providing the best quality of care, she also equips her practice with the latest technology. With the iTero Element Scanner, she can obtain digital dental impressions of teeth without needing messy mold materials and gagging!
How does the iTero Element Scanner work?
With the iTero Element Scanner, patients can have their impressions done digitally instead of using uncomfortable putty for molds of the smile. This device allows Dr. Williamson to capture detailed 3D models of the teeth and gums digitally. In addition to being more comfortable for patients compared to old putty-based impressions, it is much faster and more accurate.
What can I expect during the impression process while using the iTero Element Scanner?
The impression process using our digital scanner allows patients to breathe and swallow normally. The scanner device is run along the inside of the mouth to create a 3D model image of your mouth on our computer software system. It takes just a couple of minutes to complete!
