KETTERING, OH, February 22, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- In order to make a crown or veneer, Dr. William Almoney, a Kettering, OH dentist, must take an impression of his patient's teeth. Traditional impressions (also called "alginate" impressions) are often messy and in some cases not very accurate. The patient must bite down hard on a tray full of a thick paste, which traces the outline of the inner mouth. It's a fairly primitive way to take an image of someone's teeth and often inconvenient for patients.
Now dental patients who go to Dr. William D. Almoney, Kettering dentist, of Almoney & Brown Dental in Kettering, Ohio will benefit from the convenience of a brand new digital impression system that he now offers as a replacement for alginate (traditional) impressions. This new technology, called iTero, removes the need for patients to unnecessarily come to additional appointments to perfect dental bridges, crowns and veneers.
A Better Fit--When crowns and veneers made using traditional impressions don't fit properly, the dentist must go back and repeat the entire process. The patient must endure the discomfort of taking a new impression and wait weeks for a new model to be manufactured. It's an inconvenience that dentist in Kettering, OH, Dr. Almoney, doesn't want his patients to experience.
The iTero digital impression system eliminates these concerns. Dr. Almoney, dentist in Kettering, waves a special imaging wand over each of the teeth, which captures all of the elements of the mouth. It doesn't require any powdering and patients do not have to bite down on a mushy impression tray. When done, the computer takes the images and creates a custom "Perfect Fit" crown, bridge or veneer for the patient. The dentist can review the impression thoroughly before sending the information to a lab to have a replacement tooth created.
A Commitment to Cutting Edge Solutions--Dr. Almoney graduated with honors from the Ohio State University College of Dentistry. This Kettering family dentist values the need to continue learning about new dental technologies and procedures and understands the importance of offering his patients cutting edge solutions to their dental issues.
He sees the iTero digital impression system as a cutting edge technology that will save patients the hassle of having to deal with the mistakes and potential challenges that are characteristic of traditional impressions for veneers, crowns and more.
