iOC™ Scanner System

No more goop, gagging, or discomfort. Using an iOC scanner, your dentist can take a highly accurate digital orthodontic impression. This new technology completely eliminates the tray and putty impressions where the experience is comparable to stuffing a big wad of gum in your patient's mouth. The old technique is incredibly unpleasant and uncomfortable. Often multiple rounds of impressions are needed which can be rejected, broken, or misplaced. An iOC scanner ensures a more accurate impression from the start, resulting in improved orthodontic treatment and a more comfortable patient experience. Digital impressions give the patient the ability to see their teeth instantly in 3D, improving communication during the consultation and treatment process.

How Does it Work?

The iTero scanner digitally captures the structure of the teeth and gums using the latest optical technology. The scanner is a compact, hand-held wand. Once your dentist begins the scanning process, it can be stopped and started as many times as necessary.

Your mouth is scanned with a radiation-free laser and in as little as 2-3 minutes renders a digitally perfect, 3-D impression of your teeth and soft tissue structures. Through digital software you'll then be able to follow the progress of the scans including a three-dimensional model of your teeth on our computer screen. The iTero scanner can be used for any restorative treatment including crowns, veneers, inlays/onlays, bridges, implants and orthodontic treatments, including Invisalign.

How Does it Work? The iOC scanner digitally captures the structure of the teeth and gums using the latest optical technology. It scans the mouth with a radiation-free laser and, in six to eight minutes, renders a digitally perfect, 3-D impression of the teeth and soft tissue structures. Through digital software you'll then be able to follow the progress of the scans including a three-dimensional model of your teeth on our computer screen. The iOC scanner can be used for any orthodontic treatment including traditional metal braces and clear aligner-based orthodontic systems. Impressions taken with the iOC scanner are perfect every time and last a lifetime. If a patient loses their retainer they can easily replace it no matter where they are or how long they were without their retainer.
