The iTero scanner allows your dentist to take a digital impression—a highly accurate, digital 3D image of the individual characteristics of your tooth surfaces and gum tissue. The iTero scanner is all about keeping you comfortable while delivering precise imagery, without the putty-filled impression tray that makes you gag!
In its earliest stages, most oral cancer is virtually undetectable by just looking. And when oral cancer begins, it may not always produce pain or discomfort. In other words, it is possible to have oral cancer or pre-cancer without even knowing it. That is why it is important for everyone to be screened for oral cancer at least once per year. However, if you notice a change in your mouth or throat, such as a sore, or red or white spot that lasts longer than 2 weeks, you should contact your dentist immediately.
