We are proud to offer our patients the latest in digital technology including digital imaging. We are proud owners and operators of the iTero® Element™ Intraoral Scanner.
No more impressions, we work with highly accurate digital scans to create 3D models.
The iTero Element Scanner offers the latest in digital scanning technology to completely forgo traditional alginate impressions. You can say goodbye to the messy putty-filled trays in your mouth. With the iTero Element Scanner, the scanned images capture all the details of your mouth and soft structures to create a 3D model. The iTero Element guarantees a comfortable and safe experience for the patient with fast and precise results.
With the iTero Element Scanner:
- No goop to cause a gagging sensation
- The scan is fast, precise, and detailed for accurate diagnostics
- The iTero scans can be used for all types of treatments including braces, Invisalign® clear aligners, and retainers
- The ultimate advantage with the iTero is the ability to preview your smile before your treatment even starts! With the Invisalign Outcome Simulator (IOSim), your entire treatment can be simulated.
The digital scanning process is very easy and comfortable. The doctor will use a no-contact wand to capture the images of your teeth and gum tissue. During the process, you can breathe and swallow normally. If you need to, you can even pause the process to sneeze or ask a question, once you are done, the doctor can resume where they left off.
