As dental technology continues to advance at an unprecedented pace, we are witnessing an era of revolution in orthodontic care. At Gables iSmile, we’re at the forefront of these advancements, dedicated to providing our patients with the best in modern dentistry. Today, we’d like to spotlight an innovation that is transforming our Invisalign services: the iTero Intraoral Scanner.
What is an iTero Intraoral Scanner?
The iTero Intraoral Scanner is an innovative digital imaging system designed to capture detailed, three-dimensional images of your mouth. This groundbreaking technology enables us to create a precise, high-resolution digital impression of your teeth and gums. This information is crucial for crafting personalized orthodontic appliances like Invisalign clear aligners.
Traditional methods of creating dental impressions can be time-consuming, messy, and often uncomfortable for patients. With the iTero Intraoral Scanner, however, the process is quick, clean, and comfortable, significantly improving the patient experience.
Benefits of iTero Intraoral Scanners for Invisalign
The iTero Intraoral Scanner uses advanced imaging technology to capture thousands of tiny images of your dental structure. These images are then seamlessly combined to create an incredibly accurate 3D model of your mouth. This ensures that your Invisalign aligners are a perfect fit, enhancing their effectiveness and your comfort.
The iTero scanner greatly accelerates the process of getting your Invisalign aligners. It sends the digital impression directly to the Invisalign lab, eliminating the time traditionally spent creating and shipping physical molds. This means you can start your treatment sooner.
One of the most exciting features of the iTero scanner is its ability to show you a preview of your post-Invisalign smile. Using the detailed 3D model of your mouth, the system can simulate the outcome of your Invisalign treatment. This allows you to see your anticipated results even before you start your treatment.
4. Comfort and Convenience
Unlike traditional dental impressions, the iTero scanner is non-invasive and causes no discomfort. The process is quick, usually taking only two to three minutes. There’s no need for unpleasant-tasting impression materials or the gag reflex often associated with them.
5. Environmental Friendliness
By eliminating the need for physical impression materials and reducing shipping requirements, the iTero Intraoral Scanner is a more environmentally friendly option. Digital impressions are a significant step toward the dental industry’s goal of reducing its environmental footprint.
