No more goop, gagging, or discomfort. Using an iTero scanner, our orthodontists can take a highly accurate digital impression of your teeth and jaw. This new technology completely eliminates the need for tray and putty impressions, an experience comparable to stuffing a big wad of gum in your mouth.
The old technique is incredibly unpleasant and frequently results in having to take multiple rounds of impressions that can be rejected, broken, or misplaced. The iTero scanner ensures a more accurate impression from the start, resulting in improved treatment and a more comfortable patient experience. Digital impressions also give you the ability to see your teeth instantly in 3D, improving communication during the consultation and treatment process.
The iTero scanner digitally captures the structure of the teeth and gums using the latest optical technology. The scanner is a compact, hand-held wand. Once our orthodontist begins the scanning process, it can be stopped and started as many times as necessary. Your mouth is scanned with a radiation-free laser, and in as little as two to three minutes, the laser renders a digitally perfect, 3D impression of your teeth and soft tissue structures.
Through digital software, you’ll then be able to follow the progress of the scans, including seeing a 3D model of your teeth on our computer screen. The iTero scanner can be used for any orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign®.
