The latest iTero Scanner
What is the iTero Scanner?
The iTero Scanner creates a digital map which is then used to create 3-d images which the lab uses to create a model of your teeth for use with braces and Invisalign aligners. This technology helps us to give you the most accurate orthodontic work available today.
In the past, impressions of a patient’s mouth were often a innacurate, time consuming and uncomfortable. Large metal trays with liquid plaster were used to create a mold. Patients who experienced this were often left gagging and with goop in their teeth. The iTero scanner eliminates the need for any goop or trays and leave your mouth as clean as when the procedure began.
As we begin the process of scanning your mouth, our doctor will show you the images as they are taken on the monitor. After we have finished taking images of your entire mouth, we then create a 3-dimensional image using the digital system.
How long does teeth scanning take?
The iTero iOC captures dental impressions in 6-8 minutes. As soon as your scan is complete you can view the smile on our monitor and see the simulated outcome if you are getting invisalign.
