iTero Digital Scanner
If you’ve ever had a traditional smile impression taken, you know that it’s pretty uncomfortable. Luckily, there is now an alternative to the messy, goopy impressions—the iTero digital impression system.
The iTero digital scanner allows our team to take digital scans of your teeth that are more accurate, precise, and comfortable than traditional impressions. This means that you have a better experience with us and more personalized treatment. 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 our team 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.
Improvements in orthodontic technology have allowed for shorter treatment times without sacrificing the quality results you expect. Our in-house 3D printing technology here at Elevation Orthodontics showcases cutting-edge orthodontic technology because it prints in such high quality, with precision, and quick turnaround times. As a result, our orthodontic office can now print custom, clear retainers to help maintain your smile once treatment is complete.
Your best smile is waiting for you and we’ve made getting started easier than ever! We understand that your time is valuable, and making it into our office for a consult might be difficult. Wouldn’t it be nice to know if you are a candidate for orthodontic treatment before even walking through our door? Our virtual consultation makes that possible. Once your assessment is completed, you will receive a clear treatment plan from Dr. Brice and have a clear path toward your new smile.
Photos are best when taken in a seated position in a room with good lighting. For best results, have someone else take the photos as they can be difficult to take on your own. Request a virtual consult here.
