iTERO Digital Scanning Technology
The iTero Digital Scanning Technology allows the doctors to simply scan the teeth using a laser, thus eliminating the need for dental impression “mold” material (which is messy, tends to cause a gag reflex, and often must be repeated several times). This makes it easier than ever to receive non-invasive oral appliances that help in the treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
