Orthodontic treatment is more than just straightening teeth; it’s about ensuring your teeth and jaws are in alignment. To achieve this, we need to get an accurate look at where your teeth are positioned. To do this, we use the iTero Intraoral digital scanner.

A good impression

In the orthodontic and dental industries, ‘impressions’ is the term we use for getting a good picture of where your teeth currently sit. These impressions were previously taken using a type of dental cement. Pasted on your teeth, patients were required to lie for a few minutes while the cement-like material set. The dental professional could then remove the set material which had formed an ‘impression’ of your teeth. 

This process was messy, rather unpleasant and not very comfortable. Fortunately, that method is a thing of the past. These days, we use scanning technology and at Lavrin & Lawrence Orthodontics, our technology of choice is the iTero Intraoral digital scanner. 

 

What is the iTero scanner?

The iTero scanner is new 3D orthodontic scanning technology. Using the latest developments in intraoral scanning, the iTero scanner accurately scans your teeth as part of your orthodontic assessment. The iTero scanner is made up of a small, wand-like device which is used to scan your teeth and jaws. The data it is collecting then appears on the computer screen, allowing you to see the ‘impressions’ the scanner is taking.

The iTero scanner works in with Invisalign treatment and lets you see what your teeth will look like post-treatment, even before you’ve started. Before we recommend a course of treatment for you, we’ll take impressions of your teeth using the iTero scanner to ensure we are making our recommendation on accurate information.
