Earlier this year Arnica celebrated the installation of our CBCT digital scanner that produces high-definition, three-dimensional images of the teeth and gums enabling our dentists to see bone structure and tooth orientation in more detail, giving them a better understanding of the issues and how to fix them!
6 months later and we are very proud to announce that we will become a digital impression practice with the acquisition of the best-in-class iTero® Intraoral Scanner.
The iTero® Intraoral Scanner is a state-of-the-art digital impression system that eliminates the need for traditional impressions which are messy, uncomfortable and stressful.
‘’This is a very exciting development for Arnica Dental Care because, as a Centre of Excellence for minimising discomfort and anxiety, we are at the forefront of ‘Gentle Dentistry’ and we’ve just got gentler! Confirms Dr Ellie Ledger – Principal Dentist
For nervous, anxious and dental phobic patients requiring impressions as part of their treatment the benefits of the iTero® Intraoral Scanner include:
Not only does the iTero® Intraoral Scanner make treatment requiring impressions so much more comfortable and less stressful it also means patients can:
With better accuracy comes better results as scans are far more accurate than impressions which means that Invisalign Invisible braces and retainers, teeth whitening trays, bridges and restorations such as dental implant prosthetics fit precisely requiring little or no adjustment.
Ellie goes on to say that ‘’We strive to be at the forefront of dental best practice and now that we are a truly digital practice our patients can be confident that they are receiving the best possible treatment available to them.
