If you’re like most of our Invisalign patients, you really don’t enjoy getting impressions taken of your teeth. Up until recently, that messy, goopy molding process was the only way to construct a model of your teeth.
The good news is that here at Cater Galante Orthodontics, we now have a much simpler (and cleaner) option!
The iTero Scanner
We now have the iTero Scanner by Cadent that works with Invisalign. In just 10 minutes, an intraoral camera scans your teeth and then creates a digital casting of them. It is very accurate and allows for extremely well-fitted aligners.
Even better, this process cuts the time it takes to get your aligners in half! Instead of waiting 6-8 weeks, you’ll have your aligners in 3-4 weeks.
If you are unsure that you want or need Invisalign, this machine can also create an Outcome Simulator. It is a digital image of how your teeth can potentially look after the treatment. I’m sure that once you see how great your smile will look you will be convinced!
Stay tuned because we have even more new technology to tell you about. We strive to make the orthodontic process as enjoyable as possible. So anytime we find a new option that we think our patients will benefit from, we bring it in!
For a beautiful smile!
