3D Digital Impressions/Molds
At Papasikos Orthodontics, we use the iTero digital impression scanner to take accurate 3D images of your teeth and bite. Our digital impression system replaces the uncomfortable and messy traditional dental impressions/molds.
Benefits of iTero digital scanner over traditional dental impressions:
- Comfort – no messy putty is used and there is no fear of gagging on the material
- Accuracy – it captures the exact contours of your teeth
- Efficiency – it requires less time in the office and your treatment is expedited
- Visualization – for Invisalign® patients, it provides an image of what your teeth will look like before and after treatment
How Does it Work?
The iTero scanner digitally captures the structure of your teeth and gums using a compact, hand-held wand. Your mouth is scanned with a radiation-free laser, and, in as little as two to three minutes, the laser renders a digitally perfect, 3D impression of your teeth that can be viewed on our computer screen. The iTero scanner can be used for any type of orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign.
Our experience coupled with the use of our updated technology gives you the best possible outcome for your orthodontic treatment.
