About Our Digital Imaging Technology

Cutting-Edge Equipment for Convenient Orthodontic Care

At Parker Orthodontics, we focus on providing effective orthodontic treatments in a shorter timeline and fewer appointments than standard solutions require. The technology at our practice in Murray helps us achieve this. We use advanced dental imaging to take detailed scans and digital impressions of your mouth. Focusing on this during your initial appointment helps us move forward with your treatment plan faster so you can enjoy a healthier smile quicker. Our team proudly uses the Carestream 9600 CBCT 3D Scanner and iTero with every patient for accurate images.

We also serve Salt Lake City and have a second practice in Bullhead City, AZ. Our Murray practice is open on Monday, 9am to 5pm, Tuesday through Thursday, 8am to 5pm, and on Friday, from 9am to 1pm. We make orthodontic care accessible by accepting most insurance providers and offering multiple financing options.

If you are looking for an orthodontist that combines kindness and modern methods in the Salt Lake Valley, contact Parker Orthodontics at (801) 515-4361 to schedule an appointment.

Carestream Scanners

The Carestream 9600 CBCT 3D Scanner produces extremely detailed and clear 3D images of your dental and oral anatomy. This system is safe and only uses a minimal amount of radiation. The Carestream scanner helps Dr. Parker and our other staff members have an accurate visualization of all relevant structures, from nerves to the volume and density of your jawbone. This allows us to offer a quick and thorough diagnosis and find the appropriate treatment plan for you. 

iTero Digital Impressions

We use digital impressions rather than traditional putty ones. With the iTero handheld wand, our team captures detailed 3D images of your teeth, stopping as needed. There is usually no need to perform a second scan. During the process, you can even look at the image appearing in real-time on the screen as we take the scan.

The iTero scanner also lets us electronically send the scanned 3D image to the lab rather than mailing them. This saves time and means you get your custom-designed orthodontic appliances quicker. 

The benefits of digital teeth scanning include:

  • Less invasive than putty impressions
  • Superior accuracy without the risk of distortion due to patient movement, removal of impression, or disinfection
  • Detailed digital orthodontic scan in just a few minutes
  • Possible immediate adjustment thanks to the onscreen visualization
  • Increased patient comfort by eliminating the goop and gagging caused by putty impressions
  • Maximum cleanliness thanks to a single-use image shield 

Accurate impressions of your teeth are essential for timely treatment planning and effective orthodontic care. The iTero scanner is not only very precise, but it also is time-effective for both our patients and our team.
