Dr. Raj Upadya is one of a handful of dentists in New Jersey utilizing state-of-the-art iTero digital impressions. This sophisticated technology uses laser and optical scanning to digitally capture surface and contours of the tooth and gingival structures.
The entire process for taking a digital impression is complete in less than five minutes, the time it takes conventional dental impression material to set. In a matter of seconds, the iTero scanner captures 100,000 points of laser light and more than 300 focal depths to deliver an amazingly clear image.
Because Dr. Upadya doesn’t need to spent time to preparing or cleaning trays, the patient receives more one-on-one time with the dentist. One of the biggest patient complaints was regarding conventional impressions which were uncomfortable, messy and generally unpleasant.
The iTero digital dental impression technology delivers impressive, real time images that show on the computer screen. This unmatched visualization is one of the greatest benefits of the iTero digital impressions technology. The dentist and patient can simultaneously visualize the treatment area in 360 degrees, allowing them to communicate more effectively.
