Better Results and a Better Patient Experience
When taking impressions of the teeth, the conventional method leaves a lot to be desired. You have to bite into a goopy, messy mold and try not to gag while you wait for the putty to set. The process is uncomfortable and invasive. Thankfully, that’s changed here at Houston Orthodontic Specialists. We use the iTero® digital scanner to take clear, precise digital impressions of your teeth in seconds, improving your overall treatment and experience!
How Does the iTero Digital Impression System Work?
The iTero scanner takes highly accurate digital impressions quickly and comfortably. One of our team members uses the compact wand to scan your teeth and gums. The high-definition images then appear instantly on the screen and your Houston or Bellaire orthodontist receives a 3D rendering of your dental anatomy. They use this rendering to plan out your tooth movements and create customized Invisalign® aligners, appliances and retainers that fit perfectly. The process is easy, stress-free and makes your treatment (and appointments) faster and more precise. If you’re undergoing Invisalign treatment, we can even use the Invisalign Outcome Simulator to show you what your results will look like before you start. To experience the convenience, comfort and accuracy of iTero, book your free consultation with us today!
The handheld wand is small, lightweight and comfortable. It captures images of your teeth and gums while in motion.
The software creates a 3D rendering of your mouth, allowing Dr. Tabakman, Dr. Bloome or Dr. Khan to develop an accurate, precise digital treatment plan for amazing results.
With digital scans, you don’t have to worry about messy impression materials and the device emits no radiation. The crisp, clear images are sent to our screen instantly.
Using the Invisalign Outcome Simulator, we can show you what your smile will look like when you finish treatment. You’ll know what to expect when it comes to your results before you start.
