Much of our success is due to our highly experienced team, but we also must give some credit to our state-of-the-art technology, including the Intraoral Scanner.

What Is An Intraoral Scanner?

An Intraoral Scanner is a fancy little machine that has simplified the process of getting dental impressions for orthodontic care. The iTero Intraoral Scanner consists of an optical wand that creates a fully-realized, 3D digital model of your teeth,  jaws and bite. 

Besides just being cool to talk about, there are other benefits to using the Intraoral Scanner. Here are 5 of them: 

No More Gross Putty

Have you ever had a dental impression using the foam-like putty that sits in your mouth? Yuck! With the Intraoral scanner, the putty days are over! Gagging? Disgusting aftertaste? No more!

It’s Over In A Flash

Before, it would take quite a bit of time to get an accurate impression. Sometimes you might even have to re-do the impression if the first one wasn’t quite right, taking up even more of your time. With the scanner, this is a non-issue.

It’s More Accurate

Intraoral scanners make getting an accurate impression incredibly easy. While using the wand, there is no chance of needing a repeat visit as we know we are getting the specific shape of your teeth and biting the first time around. Accurate scans mean accurate treatment! 

It’s More Comfortable

The old technique was messy and uncomfortable. Have we mentioned the putty? Again, Yuck! Instead of sitting in the chair for 15+ minutes (that feels like an hour!) and feeling like you could gag at any minute, the Intraoral Scanner takes just a few minimally-invasive minutes of your time.

It’s Safe

There is zero radiation emitted during the use of an intraoral scanner so you can feel comfortable knowing you are safe and unexposed to anything harmful.
