Advanced Dental Technology on the Upper West Side
Dr. Kirsch is experienced in all areas of dentistry, backing his expertise and experience with the latest innovations in dental technology. Using precision instruments, including dental microscopes and digital imaging, he can devise and implement an exceptionally accurate, comfortable, and precise fit for dental work and more effective treatment of issues such as gum disease and complications below the surface. Recent advancements in digital x-rays make it easier to see a complete view of the teeth, gums, jawbone, and oral cavity with minimal radiation and better clarity.
The iTero Intraoral Camera
Dr. Kirsch has chosen to add the iTero intraoral camera to his arsenal of dental care tools. This advanced, microscopic camera is small enough to fit comfortably in your mouth. In fact, it is small enough at just a few millimeters long to be used in even young children. The iTero camera provides crisp, clear images of the mouth, teeth, and gums, eliminating the need for awkward mirror examinations that are not always accurate.
iTero intraoral cameras significantly advance digital dentistry, enabling greater accuracy and precision. The enlarged images from the iTero intraoral camera allow rapid, accurate diagnosis of dental issues with less time spent in the dentist’s chair. Dr. Kirsch also uses these images to explain your treatment options and how they will be performed so you can make an informed decision regarding your dental care.
How Does the iTero Intraoral Camera Work?
The iTero scanning camera is a slim wand containing a tiny camera. The wand is used to painlessly and comfortably scan the inside of the mouth, taking numerous, rapid pictures of the teeth, jawbone, and soft tissues. These images are then sent to a computer that generates an incredibly detailed, 3-dimensional image. This image can be used to create precisely fitted restorations, identify cavities, and determine whether there is a bite problem. The iTero intraoral scanner can also help Dr. Kirsch clearly show his patients their oral cavity and any issues they may have, leading to a better understanding of their treatment.

What Procedures Benefit from the Intraoral Camera?
Why Patients Love the iTero Intraoral Scanner
Having an impression made of your teeth has been unpleasant in the past. You had to bite down on gooey dental paste, then hold it in your mouth until the impression was set. For many patients, it felt suffocating. With the iTero intraoral scanner, those impression trays are a thing of the past. It takes just a few minutes to scan the entire inside of the mouth for a more accurate digital impression without mess or discomfort.
For patients interested in Invisalign clear aligners, iTero provides digital impressions that allow faster, more precise creation of aligners and retainers. And, of course, with the digital, 3D images of your teeth, we can show you exactly what to expect before starting any work and give you a glimpse of the finished results.
