Digital vs. Traditional Impressions:
The new I-Itero Element Digital Impression system allows our office to provide virtually impression free orthodontic treatment! This system eliminates tray and putty impressions which can take up to six minutes to set up in your mouth. Our system allows us to scan your teeth in no more than three minutes. From this scan, we generate digital study models, fabricate orthodontic appliances and begin Invisalign treatment.
Not only is this system more patient friendly, it also ensures a more accurate model and provides a more comfortable patient experience. Our patients watch first hand as their models are generated on screen as we scan; this ability to see your teeth instantly helps us improve communication throughout treatment
How does the I-Tero Element work?
The I-Tero element is an intraoral scanner that captures 6000 frames per second! The optical technology allows us to continuously scan your gums and teeth with a small hand-held wand. Your scan is immediately displayed on the screen; which means you see what we do, this allows for significantly improved chairside communication.
The radiation-free laser scans your mouth in under three minutes and creates a digitally rendered, 3D impression of your teeth and gums. The software allows you to watch as we scan and develop a 3D model of teeth on the screen.
