Say goodbye to gagging, goop, and discomfort!
Technology has made some huge advances when it comes to taking impressions of your teeth!
Conventional impressions were full of distasteful goop and gagging, along with some pretty long discomfort while waiting for the impression to solidify! Who would enjoy that?! No one!
The conventional method was also one that frequently required taking multiple rounds of uncomfortable impressions that are usually unreliable and misplaced.
Today’s Orthodontics is pleased to offer an innovative solution! The new digital impression system, iTero®!
iTero is a highly accurate digital impression machine. The leading-edge technology replaces the need for tray and putty impressions and the discomfort of a mouth full of goop!
The iTero scanner ensures a level of accuracy from the very beginning which results in a better patient experience and improved treatment! And with digital impressions imaging you have the ability to see your teeth instantly and in 3D! This provides a higher standard of communication between me as your orthodontist and you as the patient throughout the initial consultation and your entire treatment process.
iTero – In Depth
The iTero scanner digitally captures the structure of your teeth and gums using cutting-edge optical technology. In as little as three minutes or less, your entire mouth, including your soft-tissue structures, are scanned with a radiation-free laser, rendering a perfect 3D digital impression. This amazing technology allows me and my team to create a 3D model of your teeth almost instantly on our computer screens, right here in our office! Gone are the days of sending off impressions and waiting for their return.
The scanner itself is a compact, hand-held wand. Once I begin the scanning process, I have the ability to stop and restart as many times as necessary. And the best part is, no uncomfortable goopy mess! Another great asset to using our iTero scanners are their ability to be used for any and all orthodontic treatments, including Invisalign®.
