CONVENTIONAL VS DIGITAL IMPRESSIONS
The days of goopy impressions are finally behind us! Instead, we use an iTero digital scanner to obtain high-quality digital impressions of your teeth and jaw. The process of obtaining digital images using the iTero is very easy and takes only a few minutes to complete!
How Does it Work?
The iTero digital scanner consists of a small, hand-held wand. Your orthodontist can begin the scanning process and pause it as many times as necessary to allow you to ask questions, cough, or sneeze. This wand captures the entire structure of the teeth and gums.
The iTero digital scanner is a radiation-free system that uses a laser to capture 3-D impressions of your teeth in as little as two to three minutes. The iTero digital impressions are compatible with any orthodontic treatment including Invisalign.
