iTero Training Starts Today


Today we'll begin being trained and utilizing the iTero system from Cadent. The device has been on the market over 3 1/2 years now and has acquired quite a fan base.

The iTero uses an intraoral camera to take photos of teeth that are prepared for dental restorations. These photos are used to create a virtual 3D model of the prepared teeth. This data in then uploaded wirelessly to Cadent's offices where it is used to fabricate a model out of resin that is then shipped to the dental laboratory.

The process provides more accurate restorations than traditional methods and allows the dentist to create lab fabricated restorations without using the dreaded goopy impression materials that all patients must tolerate in traditional procedures.

I'm happy and excited to be involved with Cadent. I'll keep you advised on how it's going.
