3D ConeBeam Imaging
The Center for Implant and Reconstructive Dentistry at UConn Health now offers a remarkable new technology that creates virtually limitless views of the face, neck and teeth, for more complete treatment planning.
It’s called 3D ConeBeam Imaging. It’s fast, simple and completely painless – patients just sit in a chair for a single 10-second scan. And, from that scan, the specialist can quickly see computer-generated views of the bones of the face, the teeth, and other details from any angle, in 3D and in color!
It’s important for your doctor to have accurate and complete information to plan your treatment. 3D ConeBeam Imaging provides that information, with a host of advantages for you and your doctors.
We’ll Make a Great First Impression
The iTero Element Scanner is a state-of-the-art digital impression system that eliminates the need for messy putty in your mouth. With our iTero Element Scanner, we can digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is this process far more comfortable than the old putty based impressions, but it’s faster and can offer a superior clinical endpoint.
- No goop or gag to worry about
- Fast, accurate impression
- Ideal for crowns, bridges, implants, and Invisalign® clear aligners and retainers

During the impression process, you can breathe or swallow as you normally would. You can even pause during the process if you need to sneeze or just want to ask a question. The scanner gives us a 3D model of your mouth that can be used for your dental services including the Invisalign Outcome Simulator to show you what your new smile might look like.Back to treatments
