With so many new technological advancements in orthodontics, iTero scanners are at the forefront. At our office, Dr. Yazji uses the iTero Element® Plus Series for cutting-edge digital scanning of your mouth.
So, what does that mean for your orthodontic treatment?
Let’s investigate the benefits of having your teeth scanned with iTero instead of using traditional dental impressions.
For starters, digital scanning gives orthodontists a precise, vivid depiction of your mouth. This is critical when considering treatment, as even the slightest error can lead to inaccurate treatment planning.
Orthodontists also rely on these accurate images to track your treatment progress. With digital scans, Dr. Yazji can compare your before and after images to see the amazing transformation that’s taken place.
With our iTero scanner, we can obtain accurate measurements and avoid any potential errors. This means you can be confident you’re receiving top-notch orthodontic treatment.
Another great benefit of iTero scanners is that they help you get started with your orthodontic treatment in less time.
In the past, taking dental impressions could be a lengthy process. First, we had to take traditional putty impressions of your teeth. Then, we would send those impressions off to a dental lab where they would create physical models of your teeth.
This entire process could take weeks, and impressions aren’t always accurate, which could further delay treatment. Plus, they can easily be damaged, meaning you would have to start the process all over again.
With iTero scanners, you no longer have to wait several weeks for your dental impressions to be ready.
Additionally, iTero scanners allow you to avoid the mess and discomfort of having dental impressions made.
If you’ve ever had traditional dental impressions, you know how uncomfortable they can be. Putty can be cold and sticky, and it can be difficult to keep your mouth still for an extended period.
This process can be off-putting, especially if you have a strong gag reflex. And, let’s be honest, no one enjoys the taste of putty!
With iTero scanners, you can avoid all of that discomfort by creating a digital scan of your mouth. And luckily, it doesn’t involve any putty at all!
iTero scanners are changing the way people experience orthodontics. At Dr. Yazji’s office, we are proud to use the most advanced new technology for our patients.
With an iTero scanner, you can be confident that you’re receiving the most accurate dental scans. And, if you’re interested in starting your treatment as soon as possible, it’s the way to go.
