Itero 3D Scanner
The iTero Intraoral 3D Scanner is a state-of-the-art digital impression system that eliminates the need for messy putty in your mouth. With our iTero Element Scanner, we can digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is this process far more comfortable than the old putty based impressions, but it’s faster and offers a superior clinical result.
During the impression process, you can swallow and breathe as normal. We can even pause during the process if you need to sneeze or just ask a question. The scanner gives us a 3D digital model of your mouth that we can use to create Invisalign and Invisalign Teen aligners, digital study models, other orthodontic appliances and much more.
