Lythos Impressionless Scanner
Lythos is the worlds most sophisticated intraoral digital camera. The introduction of Lythos scanning technology into our practice is the first step of the process that will eliminate uncomfortable and messy impressions from our practice forever. Lythos is designed to integrate easily into our practice’s workflow, allowing the team to transition quickly into digital impressions, which saves time for our patients. Using the Lythos scanner, we can get a single high resolution scan in less than 7 minutes. The lightweight, compact Lythos wand is comfortable and ergonomic for the operator. This combined with the the small wand handle and tip allow operators to access the posterior easily, maximizing your comfort.
iTero Impressionless Scanner
Our practice now offers the iTero Impressionless Scanner in our office. The innovative iTero Impressionless Scanner is an advanced technology used to take oral impressions for braces, InvisalignÂ®, Appliance and retainers. Impressionless scanning uses confocal imaging to digitally capture the shape of teeth and gums, providing a multitude without the use of traditional impressions.
Traditional impression techniques requires a patient to be uncomfortably seated while having a messy substance in their month. However, with the iTero Impressionless Scanner it takes 1/3 the time to take an impression andwhe get a much more detailed result.
iTero Impressionless Scanners have several benefits over traditional impressions. First, a patientâ€™s movement does not distort the scan while eliminating the invasiveness and discomfort caused by impressions. Second, the real-time digital display of scans allows for immediate adjustment, assuring accurate scans the first time. Finally, the image quality of impressionless scans is superior to conventional impressions.
