The iTero® scanner is a cutting-edge camera that captures up to 20 images per second to create a full-color, 3-D image. With these images, Dr. Jorge Rico can create better-fitting appliances, diagnose infected soft tissues, and simulate orthodontic treatments for our patients. With iTero technology, Rico Dental can even show how our patients’ teeth will look before we start treatments!

By using a small wand, our dentist can map the inside of a patient’s mouth. As Dr. Jorge Rico gently moves the wand across your teeth, the scanned images automatically save every 2 seconds and create a continuous 3-D image of the inside of your mouth. With this 3-D image, we can zoom in on treatment areas; identify the relationship between your teeth and supporting structures; and provide faster, more accurate diagnoses and treatment plans.

At Rico Dental, we are dedicated to staying up-to-date on the latest dental technology so as to provide our patients with the highest quality of dental care possible. We want to ensure that your dental care is as comfortable, efficient, and convenient as possible, and the iTero digital impression system allows us to achieve that goal.
