CARLSTADT, New Jersey--After more than three years of rigorous clinical testing and over 2,000 restorations successfully inserted, Cadent, Ltd. has announced that the Cadent iTero Digital Impression System will be introduced in the New York area at the Greater New York Dental Meeting in November.

iTero is an integrated, digital impression system for dental professionals. Designed to replace the uncomfortable and imprecise method of conventional impression taking, iTero offers significant benefits to dentists, patients, and laboratories.

iTero, powered by proprietary imaging technology, enables the dentist to take a 3-D digital scan of a patient's mouth, make adjustments, and then transmit an electronic file to the laboratory where a final restoration is crafted with unprecedented precision and accuracy.

"Anyone who has ever had crown or bridge work done will appreciate the significance of making traditional trays and materials obsolete," said Tim Mack, VP & General Manager for Cadent.

"iTero simply and elegantly captures a highly detailed, 3-D scan of the patient's mouth which is displayed real-time while the patient is still in the chair. Dentists laud the visibility iTero offers them."

Current iTero user, Dr. Bret Jacobson, D.D.S., of Federal Way, Wash., remarked, "I'm excited to be using this technology because it gives me confidence in delivering a high quality, precisely fitted restoration to my patients".

Cadent will be offering hands-on demonstrations of iTero at booth 4223 at the GNYDM at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center of New York Nov. 26-29 during normal show hours.

Dental practitioners are invited to stop by and sample the technology, which was highlighted in a Wall Street Journal article titled, "Dentistry May Gain From 3-D Images" on April 12.

"We expect iTero to become the standard of care in the dental industry and that iTero will make a lasting first impression," adds Mack.
