iTero for Invisalign®
The iTero scanner can create a 3D image of our patient’s teeth for higher accuracy than dental putty and more comfort for our patients. The scanner takes up to 6,000 images each second, producing a precisely detailed and interactive image.
The iTero system is able to track a patient’s progress with Invisalign and show them the end result before treatment is done. Even before the first set of aligners is worn, the patient is introduced to their newly straightened smile!
Our Cone Beam CT scan produces an incredibly detailed 3D image of our patient’s entire oral structure. The imaging can be used to assess jaw bone health, the location of nerves, and to view each tooth’s exact position. In our office, its abilities are especially helpful for implant placement.
The imaging allows our dentist to prepare for implant placement by determining the perfect position of the implant and ensuring the bone density is sufficient to support it. This significantly increases the success rate of the implant placement procedure.
Using our oral cameras, we are able to scan patients’ teeth and provide a clearer view of hard-to-reach areas of the mouth. This allows us to inspect and map tooth surfaces, gum health, and cavity development in exceptional detail.
