At Health Style Dental, we use the iTero Impression Scanner to help our Regina patients plan their Invisalign® treatment, and preview what the final results will be.
What is the iTero Impression Scanner?
Before treatment begins, your dentist will use the iTero Impression Scanner to take 3D impressions of your bite. This intraoral camera allows your dentist to capture highly accurate data, adjust your treatment plan in real-time, store data digitally, and show you the results you can expect at the end of your treatment.
How the iTero Scanner Works
Your dentist will begin by using the iTero wand to scan each quadrant of your jaw. This process is non-invasive and allows your dentist to get highly accurate images of each tooth.
Next, your dentist will perform a full bite scan so that they can get an accurate picture of your bite and identify if you have any bite issues, or malocclusion.
Finally, your dentist will send the complete model to Align Technologies and they will begin to create your custom-fit aligners.
We also use the Invisalign Outcome Simulator to create a simulation of how your teeth will look once the Invisalign treatment is complete.
