Digital Impressions, at Dr. Stewart’s office

Categories: Dentistry

The office of Dr. Bruce Stewart is pleased to announce that we are now using the Cadent iTero digital Impression System to take all crown and bridge impressions at our office. We have been waiting patiently for our training days to arrive, and they did this week. We had a trainer from Cadent iTero in the office all day Tuesday and Wednesday teaching us the techniques of using the iTero and guiding us through taking digital impressions. Training went very well and we are up and running and confident that our new system will be a real benefit to our patients. You will no longer experience the messy and uncomfortable trays with impression material, and the gagging they can cause.

The iTero impression process takes about five minutes, and creates an exact copy of the crown site as well as a more accurate fitting crown. This will shorten the time needed to seat crowns, which is another benefit to the patient. If you have been putting off getting a crown because of the impressions, give our office a call and see how easy and relatively comfortable the impression process is now that it is digital.
