In the past, if you were going to have treatment done on your teeth, you would need to have a mold taken of your mouth. That would mean a tray filled with goop that would be inserted into your mouth. You would have to wait a long time before the molding tray was finally removed so you could clean out your mouth. Thanks to modern technology and advances in the field of orthodontics, you can benefit from the Itero® scanner to avoid the need for messy molds.
What is the Story with the Itero® Scanner?
When our orthodontist needs an in-depth look at your teeth, the Itero® scanner can get the job done. A handheld device is passed over your teeth to create a digital image. This information can be sent to any computer in order to plan your course of treatment.
The Itero® scanner is extremely helpful in creating Invisalign® aligners. When you need to have a new set of aligners every two weeks, you want to make sure that you are getting the proper fit. The Itero® scanner will provide our orthodontic professional with a clear picture of what you need so that you can have the most effective treatment possible.
Choose the Fast and Convenient Method of Evaluation
When you benefit from the Itero® scanner, it means less of your time. You won’t be inconvenienced by the need for molds, a mess or a lengthy visit at our office in Frankfort or Oak Lawn when determining if you need braces. You’ll also avoid radiation. Best of all, everyone who is involved in your treatment plan will easily be able to tap into the digital information provided by the scanner.
