Family Dental Practice


3D Scanner

The Family Dental Practice provides the most technologically advanced equipment available today. We recently updated our iTero scanner to the newest model – the iTero Element.

The iTero digital scanner eliminates the need for messy, gag-inducing dental impressions and allows for a precise fit of crowns and bridges.

Not only is a digital impression more comfortable, it’s also much more accurate. The scanner takes an incredibly detailed impression of your teeth and gums. Once the scan is complete, Dr Gallagher has a 3D model of your mouth that can be used to create detailed crowns, bridges, veneers and inlays.

This digital accuracy eliminates the need to retake impressions, keeping your time in the chair to an absolute minimum.

Whilst we’ve had a digital scanner for a while, the new iTero Element is faster and clearer than previous models – it features a continuous scanning design that lets us scan in motion, rather than taking individual images and stitching them together. This means even less time in the dental chair for our patients.

The iTero Element also features a scanning wand that’s 40% smaller than our last model – making it quicker, more accurate, and even more comfortable.
