iTero Impression Scanner
The Cloverdale Crossing Dental team use the iTero Impression Scanner to plan your Invisalign treatment, and give you an idea of what your results will look like once it's complete.
What is iTero?
The iTero Element Impression Scanner is an intraoral camera that takes accurate and highly detailed 3D impressions of patients' bites. It allows us to make adjustments to treatment in real time, store data digitally, and show patients how their Invisalign results will look before treatment even begins.
How does it work?
iTero scans each quadrant of the jaw with an ergonomically designed scanning wand that makes this process very comfortable for the patient.
The scanner captures whole tooth images for an extremely accurate scan, resulting in better fitting Invisalign aligners.
After the quadrant scan, a full bite scan is performed so that the dentist can get an accurate idea of the patient's malocclusion in context. The complete model is then sent to Align Technologies so that the aligners can be created.
With the help of an iTero scan, we can use the Invisalign Outcome Simulator to create a simulation of how the patient's teeth will look at the conclusion of Invisalign treatment.
