No More Plaster Impressions
We now have a State-of-the Art laser scanner to take extremely accurate impressions of your teeth and jaw. This means we can create high quality impressions without the use of trays and messy plaster.
There is no additional cost to you, the patient, to use this latest technology.
The iTero scanner uses laser and optical scanning to digitally capture the shape of your teeth and gums. It takes images from all sides of the teeth to create a full, 360 degree image. The images are then laced together to create the 3D image which can be viewed by the patient computer screen as it is being created.
The electronic file of your 3D image or digital impression is then sent directly to the Invisalign® team. This high quality image guarantees a perfect fit for your aligners and saves time in having your aligners manufactured and sent back.
Our staff are professionally trained to use the iTero scanner and we find patients are delighted with the ease of the scan as they can lie down comfortably while it is being done. This process eliminates the use of traditional uncomfortable impression materials.
