Dental technology is changing and advancing faster than ever. To see evidence of this, all you have to do is visit our practice. Now, instead of taking impressions of the teeth by having a patient bite down into gooey dental putty, we can instead create a highly detailed digital model with our iTero scanner. This instrument makes orthodontic treatment faster, more comfortable, and more predictable for Dr. Valant and our patients, making the path to an attractive and healthy smile both shorter and more straightforward. To come benefit from our state-of-the-art approach for yourself, contact us today to schedule a consultation.
With iTero Digital Imaging, we’re able to quickly scan the teeth using a small device that is slightly larger than a pen. This instrument captures thousands of data points and sophisticated software then turns it into a fully digital impression within a matter of minutes. This model then allows Dr. Valant to develop extremely precise and personalized treatment plans to help our patients achieve the smiles they deserve.
Our iTero Scanner not only makes the impression process more comfortable for our patients, but it also provides another benefit—the Outcome Simulator. For a patient interested in getting Invisalign, we can scan their teeth, create the models, and then show them what their smile will look like once treatment has finished. This can be extremely motivating for patients at the beginning of their treatment and encourage them to stay on track throughout the process. It also ensures that their expectations are in line with Dr. Valant’s. Basically, this process makes the treatment experience more transparent and easily understandable, ensuring patients can feel confident every step of the way towards their straighter smile.
