Have you ever had impressions done with the soft, sticky material in a tray and put in your mouth where you wait for it to set? If you are like most people, it is not something you would look forward to! Especially when it didn’t turn out and resulted in taking several rounds of impressions to get it right.
AdvancedOrthodontics uses an iTero® Element™ Intraoral Scanner that eliminates the mess and unpleasantness associated with traditional tray and putty dental impressions. We are able to take precise digital impressions of your teeth and jaw. You’ll see your teeth instantly in 3-D! The scanner ensures a comfortable, more accurate impression from your first appointment, resulting in faster and safer treatment. With iTero we can create a customized treatment plan at your first appointment! The iTero also allows for faster delivery time for Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen® aligners. As a matter of fact, Invisalign cases that start with an iTero scan® have fewer fit issues than those started with traditional impressions. You are able to watch and see your 3-D teeth as we scan and you can view the before and after of your treatment!
