Park Ave Dentists

New York, NY, Nov. 12, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Park Avenue Dental Cosmetics now offers the Cadent iTero Digital Impression System in NY, the most advanced dental impressions system available today. Nayer Mousavi, D.D.S. maintains a cutting-edge practice by offering the most advanced systems and technology in dental care, including treatments such as Invisalign®, porcelain veneers, and Zoom!® Teeth Whitening. Impressions are necessary for custom fit procedures, but until recently, the materials used for impressions were messy, uncomfortable, and often-times inaccurate. The iTero digital scan is revolutionizing the comfort, convenience, and accuracy of dental impressions for patients seeking Invisalign® in New York and other custom fit procedures.

The Cadent iTero Digital Impression System is the most advanced dental scanning technology available in the market today. This revolutionary technique uses parallel confocal imaging and 100,000 laser and optical light points to create a three dimensional digital replication of teeth. In addition to producing a highly accurate scan for improved dental care, the Cadent iTero Digital Impression System replaces the need for the traditionally goopy, uncomfortable, less accurate materials that would create a physical mold. Distortions would often occur while using traditional impressions because of flaws inherent in the materials' consistency and technique of physical molds. The iTero digital scan, on the other hand, allows for shorter and less frequent dental visits by completely eliminating these faults.

Either digital impressions or physical molds are necessary for custom fit procedures, such as crowns, dental implants, bridges, and Invisalign®. During these dental procedures, a minimum of two visits are required. The first visit will allow Dr. Mousavi to scan the mouth using iTero digital scans. These scans will be sent to the lab, so custom fit crowns, implants, bridges, or Invisalign® trays can be created. During a second visit, Dr. Mousavi will affix this individualized dental appliance to the teeth. Traditionally, the impression of the mouth was a physical impression, or mold, which would be mailed to the lab in order to custom create the dental appliance. The material of the mold was unpleasant-tasting, bulky, and needed time to harden into a set impression.

This physical impression, however was often difficult to set and would need several attempts to mold an accurate impression of the teeth. In addition to its inconvenient and gaggingly-uncomfortable material, the traditional mold could also be damaged in transit from the doctor's office to the lab. Shipping would potentially take several days, allowing for the mold to break if handled improperly and shrink or expand depending on temperature changes. The Cadent iTero Digital Impression System in NYC, on the other hand, eliminates the hassle of creating a mold, the extended shipping time, and the potential for damaging a mold during shipping.

Once the iTero digital scans are complete, the image is instantaneously sent digitally to the lab. In addition to the physical comfort and ease of a "gag-free" impression, digital scans are more detailed than a physical mold, allowing for a more accurate creation of dental appliances or Invisalign® trays. The Cadent iTero Digital Impression System creates an accurate impression with a single scan, so secondary impressions to improve on a damaged mold are unnecessary; patients will receive the results from their scan faster and more efficiently than was ever possible with traditional, physical molds.
