iTero 3D Scanner for Invisalign
Achieving the straight, healthy smile you desire just got easier. Old Greenwich Dental Associates offers comfortable and discreet Invisalign clear aligners for our patients, using the advanced iTero 3D scanner to create a digital image of your teeth. The iTero 3D scanner uses incredible digital technology to create a high-resolution image of your teeth. There is no need for a physical bite impression – in just seconds, your teeth can be scanned to create the Invisalign aligners that will straighten your smile.
Invisalign orthodontics uses clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. These aligners are designed based on your current bite and teeth position and your desired results. Every two weeks, new aligners are created to bring your teeth closer to your desired smile. To create these new aligners, a 3D mold of your teeth is required. The iTero 3D scanner makes it quicker and easier for Dr. Greg Busch and our team at Old Greenwich Dental Center to create a 3D digital mold of your teeth to design aligners for your Invisalign treatment.
See Your Invisalign Outcome Before You Start Treatment
With the iTero 3D scanner, it is possible to scan your existing smile and see how it will look after the Invisalign treatment. The 3D image is an accurate representation of your teeth, and once we have this image, we can use the Invisalign Outcome Simulator software to predict the effects of using Invisalign aligners to straighten your smile. You can see a digital representation of what your new smile will look like once your treatment is completed. This final result is what will help design your aligners during your treatment, bringing you closer to the desired outcome with every set of aligners created.
Quick, Comfortable 3D Images
If you have ever had a physical mold made of your teeth, you know how uncomfortable it is to bite down on a molding apparatus. The goopy physical impression for 3D molds has been used for decades for creating crowns, aligners, restorations and many other dental devices. With the iTero 3D scanner, there is no need to endure the physical impression process. There will be no goop and no gagging during the scanning process. The iTero 3D scanner is non-invasive and quickly performed without the uncomfortable mold.
The digital imaging technology used with the iTero 3D scanner is state of the art, providing 6,000 images of your teeth per second. These images create a high-resolution 3D image of your teeth. During your Invisalign treatment, these images can show your progress as your teeth are shifted into place. When you come in for your aligner adjustments, we will perform an Invisalign progress assessment using the 3D scanner. You will be able to watch your smile become straighter with each appointment, bringing you closer to the beautiful smile you desire.
