Digital images help us produce more accurate dental restorations

We are pleased to announce the addition of the iTero Element 2 Imaging System in our Naples, Florida, office. This advanced intraoral scanner enables us to routinely and quickly use digital scans in performing dental procedures more accurately and efficiently than ever before.

Our patients appreciate the impressive 21.5-inch touch widescreen and high-definition color imaging of the iTero Element 2 Imaging System. It makes it easy for us to display images right at your chair so you can better understand what we’re looking to accomplish.

The iTero Element 2 Imaging System produces full-color images of all your teeth, which allows Dr. Dennis Lucas and his team to evaluate changes in tooth position and biting pressure, among other variables. Since the oral environment is always changing – teeth move, gums recede, and biting forces shift – it is important that we have a tool like this to help us monitor those changes.

Oral changes caused by actions such as tooth clenching and broken teeth can have a significant impact on esthetics and create periodontal complications. The iTero Element 2 Imaging System helps us track those changes and advise you on how best to manage them.

The iTero Element 2 Imaging System complements our 3M scanner

The iTero Element 2 Imaging System is an ideal complement to our office’s 3M scanner, which lets us scan crown preparations without relying on the gooey impression materials that we previously had to send to a lab for fabrication.

Like the iTero Element 2, the 3M scanner also captures images we can use with Invisalign® clear braces, allowing our patients to begin using this amazing aligner technology quicker so they can enjoy prettier smiles and better bites.

The images we are able to capture with these scanners are more accurate than impressions and produce restorations that fit better. In addition, we can send the images electronically to the dental lab for far more efficient production and faster turnaround times.

We continue to invest in technology that delivers the highest quality dental services for our patients. The iTero Element 2 Imaging System is the latest in these investments that allows us to better serve our dental patients in the Naples area.
