A sure sign of orthodontic excellence is the commitment to using the latest technology and advancements. The iTero digital impression system is a state-of-the-art imaging technology that delivers precise results. The experts at Lindsey Orthodontics share this information about this incredible piece of technology and how it helps provide the best orthodontic results.

How the iTero Digital Impression System Works

Gone are the days of using putty and trays, so you no longer have to endure the putty-gagging substance to take dental impressions. The iTero system takes 3-D digital images of your entire mouth, providing a detailed model that is used to plan your treatment. The process for taking digital images is easy, quick, and comfortable.

Your Locust Grove orthodontist will use a small handheld wand to scan your teeth. Once the scan is complete, a 3-D model is created that will map out your treatment from the beginning to the final result. You will actually be able to see what your teeth will look like once your treatment is complete. The digital impressions are used to create your custom braces or Invisalign aligners.

The Benefits of the iTero Scanner

Below are some of the main the benefits of iTero digital impression system over traditional putty impressions:

  • Precision: The scanner captures your teeth' contours so your braces or aligners fit perfectly on your teeth.
  • Efficiency: The iTero requires less time in the treatment chair, meaning shorter orthodontic appointments.
  • Comfort: Taking digital images is less invasive because putty is not used, leaving patients more comfortable without the fear they will gag on the impression putty.
  • Visualization: You will have images of what their teeth will look like before, during, and after orthodontic treatment.
