We are a digital impression practice, proud owners of an iTero® Element™ Intraoral Scanner!
The iTero® Element™ Scanner is a state-of-the-art digital impression system that eliminates the need for unpleasant traditional alginate impressions—no more messy putty in your mouth! With our iTero® Element™ Scanner, we can digitally capture a detailed, 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is an iTero® Element™ digital impression far more comfortable than the old putty-based impressions, but it’s faster and provides images that are more precise.
Say “goodbye” to the goop-filled impression trays!
- No goop or gag to worry about
- Fast, accurate impression for superior diagnostics
- Ideal for all types of braces, including Invisalign® clear aligners and retainers
- See a simulation of your potential post-treatment smile with the Invisalign® Outcome Simulator (IOSim)
During the impression process, your orthodontist will use the iTero® Element™ Scanner’s wand to capture images of your teeth and gum tissue. You can breathe or swallow as you normally would. You can even pause during the process if you need to sneeze or just want to ask a question.
The iTero® Element™ Scanner will give us a 3D model of your mouth that we can use with all orthodontic services, including the Invisalign® Outcome Simulator, to show you what your new smile might look like.
