iTero Scans

iTero Scans in Mountain View, CA

Our office uses iTero Scanning on patients to complete an Oral Health Care Assessment at no extra cost to the patient. The scan, along with the Oral Health Care Assessment, can show us images of a patient’s bite in many forms. This allows us to assess a patient to see if they suffer from Malocclusion.

Malocclusion is a disease that can be seen in many forms, including:

  • Crossbite
  • Open bite
  • Deep bite
  • Overjet
  • Crowding
  • Diastema
  • Spacing
  • and rotation of the teeth.

When untreated, malocclusion can lead to:

  • Wear (worn down/short teeth)
  • Recession
  • Tooth chips
  • Thinning
  • Collision
  • Shifting
  • Poor root support
  • Poor mobility
  • and worst case, tooth loss.

If malocclusion is present, the scan also allows us to find areas of concern and express ways to treat the disease and prevent further issues.

An iTero scan can also be used for Restorative Solutions, Orthodontic Solutions, and Lab Solutions.

Restorative Solutions

iTero scan can enhance treatment predictability — from crowns and bridges to edentulous cases — to boost efficiency.

Orthodontic Solutions

iTero scan provides a full view of a patient’s mouth which can help optimize treatment accuracy and provide rich 3D visuals for patient engagement.

Lab Solutions

iTero allows us to scan patients rather than take traditional impressions. A scan is typically much quicker and is more comfortable for the patient.

Over time, our goal is to compare scans to show patients what changes have occurred appointment to appointment, or year to year using a Timelapse feature.
