The iTero Digital Scanner
At Wake Orthodontics, we are steadfast in providing the highest level of patient care and employing the latest technologies to achieve our goals! We strive to give our patients a comfortable experience as well as precision orthodontic treatment. That is why we are so excited about the latest addition to our office – the iTero Oral Digital Scanner! It’s orthodontics gone 3D! This brand new piece of equipment offers a better patient experience and allows us to operate more efficiently.
How Does iTero Work?
Using the iTero™ digital scanner, we can take three-dimensional digital images, or impressions, of your teeth and bite. Your mouth is scanned with a handheld, radiation-free laser wand and in just 15-20 minutes renders a perfect digital, 3D impression of your teeth and soft tissue structures. The digital impression can be used for patients getting braces or Invisalign treatment.
Benefits of Digital Technology
Additional benefits of iOC™ digital include:
- Accuracy: Capturing the exact contours of your teeth.
- Efficiency: Requires less time in the treatment chair.
- Comfort: Taking the digital images is less invasive. Patient comfort is increased by utilizing scanning wand technology.
- Customizability: Provides a digital plan and allows for trays that are tailored to meet the individual needs and desires of each patient.
- Visualization: Provides each patient with a picture of what their teeth will look like before, during and after orthodontic treatment.
- Innovation: Uses the most advanced 3-D imaging technologies.
Wake Orthodontics is proud to offer our patients this technology, which will improve their orthodontic experience. Thanks to the iTero scanner we can make an accurate and comfortable impression on the very first try. Are you ready for precision orthodontic treatment?
