If you’ve ever had a traditional smile impression taken, you know that it’s pretty uncomfortable. For many, the experience is upsetting enough that they attempt to put off orthodontic and dental treatments for as long as possible in an effort to avoid needing impressions. Luckily, there is now an alternative to the messy goop impressions—the iTero digital impression system.
This means that you have a better experience with us and more personalized treatment. And since 3D scans are easier for patients to understand, it also helps you to be informed and empowered in your treatment.
The iTero scanner uses optical technology to create 3D scans of the teeth and the gums. The scanner itself is a small, handheld wand that is moved by the orthodontist to guide the scanning process.
Since it uses a radiation-free laser and finishes the process in two to three minutes, you can rest assured that it is completely safe. We can use iTero to guide us in any form of orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign®.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions! We’re always happy to hear from you. We’re here to guide you through your treatment process, from your very first visit, to your last appointment.
