Conventional vs Digital Impressions
Say goodbye to goopy impressions that make you gag. That old method is no fun for anyone. Thank goodness we use the most updated method of creating models of your teeth that is extremely accurate, fast, and comfortable for everyone. The iTero scanner ensures more accurate models from the start, resulting in improved treatment and a more comfortable patient experience. Digital models also give you the ability to see your teeth instantly in 3D, improving communication during the consultation and treatment process.
How Does it Work?
The iTero scanner is radiation free and uses a small wand to take pictures of your teeth using the latest optical technology. In as little as a few minutes, the laser renders a digitally perfect 3D model of your teeth and soft tissue structures. These models can be used for treatment planning or to make orthodontic appliances.
Easily replace retainers
After your braces come off, we perform a final scan to create 3D models. This ensures that you have the ability to reorder your retainers at any point in the future. You can be living on the other side of the world and order replacement retainers. We encourage patients to continue to wear their retainers longterm to maintain alignment, to bleach their teeth if desired, and to prevent wear from grinding. All good reasons to keep on wearing retainers!
