At the forefront of cutting edge Digital Dentistry

Our surgery is happy to be among the few Dentists in Scotland to incorporate the fantastic iTero Element 5D scanner, the latest in dental digital scanning technology.

The iTero scanner is the height of cutting edge equipment. As a result, you can feel safe knowing that you will receive the most up-to-date and effective dental treatment available.

It’s vital to us that we keep up with the evolving practices in the digital world to provide our patients with the highest quality of care possible. With the addition of this scanner, you can be sure that Dee Dental Paisley has its finger on the pulse of the latest dental technology.

The iTero 5D scanner is a revolutionary new piece of equipment. It won ‘Best New Technology Solution for Dentistry’ in the recent MedTech Breakthrough Awards.

Advanced dental technology: What does it do?

The iTero Element 5D scanner is a hybrid dental imaging system that records 3D images, intraoral scanning and Near-Infrared Imaging (NIRI) of your mouth. The scanner allows our dentists to screen the internal structure of a tooth or teeth in real-time. This enables us to detect issues invisible to the naked eye. 

Not only does the scanner reveal certain existing conditions there and then, but it also enables specialists to identify any telltale signs of future issues. Our dental care team can then recommend preventative treatments as well as resolve existing problems.

With advanced TimeLapse technology, our dentists can create accurate images of what your teeth will look like in the future. This is particularly useful should you be considering cosmetic dentistry treatments such as Invisalign.

How will digital dentistry benefit you?

Having this technology at our disposal allows us to treat our patients much more rigorously. Finding dental solutions is made easier and smoother for both dentist and patient. Indeed, regular scans with the iTero 5D scanner will become commonplace in our surgery, replacing more cumbersome and laborious check-up processes.

Highly efficient, the scans are exceptionally quick. It takes as little as 60 seconds to complete a full arch scan of your teeth. The scanner does not use radiation to capture images, and the process is entirely painless and safe.

These latest digital technologies are replacing more traditional methods of dentistry. 5D scans eliminate the need for uncomfortable orthodontic impressions, creating a fuss-free way to manufacture orthodontics that fit perfectly to your mouth. The digitised impressions are compatible with Invisalign treatments and can be sent directly from the scanner to the laboratory. As Invisalign integrates seamlessly with iTero, your aligners will be ready up to three times faster than with more traditional methods.
