itero scanner grand rapids michigan Are you ready for more comfortable and efficient visits to the dentist? At Westside Dental GR, we earnestly seek out the latest and best dental technology for serving our patients. Our latest addition, the Itero scanner, is a true game changer.

With the Itero scanner, our patients will no longer have to go through the lengthy and sometimes uncomfortable process of getting conventional impressions done to their teeth, gums and jaw for services like Invisalign, implants, TMJ and Sleep Apnea.

With the Itero scanner, our patients now bypass all the gagging, discomfort and goop used with the old method that consisted of casting impressions with trays and putty.

And to make matters worse, with the old method, a patient might have to come back to the office multiple times for extra impressions to get the fit and shape just right for their mouth. We understood this was frustrating and inconvenient for our patients.

Now with the Itero scanner, we can quickly, safely, and accurately create a digital impression of a patient’s teeth and jaw in just minutes. This not only is a much more comfortable experience for our patients, it’s a much faster one too.

Once scanned, our patients can digitally see their teeth in 3d on a monitor. This greatly helps the dentist to patient communication when it comes to a patient’s consultation, treatment process and answering a patient’s questions.


The Itero scanner is a digital scanner that is able to capture 1000s of photos of a patient’s gums and teeth while utilizing current optical technology in just minutes. These photos are combined into an accurate 3d model.

To make the process simple and easy, the Itero scanner utilizes a small hand-held wand that is quick to use and painless. As the wand is waved over the patients’s teeth, the photos are captured and the 3d image is rendered.


Itero scanners are very safe to operate. Patient’s do not experience any pain when being scanned. The Itero scanner does not use any radiation. So if a patient is pregnant, they need not worry about the safety of their baby while having their teeth scanned.


If you are considering a service like Invisalign, implants, TMJ or Sleep Apnea and you want the very best patient experience possible, simply give us a call at 616.453.5331 and experience the difference an Itero Scanner makes.
