Dental Technology At Wellington Dental
Dental technology can be important in preventing and treating oral health concerns. At Wellington Dental, we utilize a variety of dental technology equipment to complement your procedures.
iTero® Element™ Intraoral Scanner
The iTero® Element™ Scanner is a digital impression system that eliminates the need for messy putty in your mouth.
We can digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. This process is more comfortable than putty based impressions and yields faster results.
The benefits of using the iTero Element Scanner include no putty or gagging, an accurate impression, and is ideal for Invisalign®, as you will be able to see a simulation of your potential post-treatment smile.
During the impression process, you can breathe or swallow as you normally would. You can even pause during the process if you need to sneeze or ask a question.
The scanner gives us a 3D model of your mouth that we will use with all Invisalign services including the Invisalign Outcome Simulator to show you what your new smile might look like.
Digital X-rays are easily stored and retrieved right from our computer system, lessening the need for looking for hard-copy files, and reducing the wait time as no films need to develop.
Digital X-rays use technologically advanced techniques to store the image of the X-ray in digital format. Digital X-rays are much faster than traditional X-rays. This results in a quicker, more comfortable experience. All digital X-rays are stored in our computer system for easy reference by our team at any point during your care. Digital X-rays help detect and problems faster allowing for a more precise monitoring and treatment.
