What Is The iTero Scanner And How Does It Help Invisalign Treatments?


The iTero scanner is a recent innovative dental technology which allows dentists to capture 3D dental images of a patient’s mouth. The iTero scanner is an intraoral wand which the dentist can move the wand around a patient’s mouth to generate a 3D dental image in a few minutes. The scans are used to create dental models for restorative work including dental crowns, implants, and as well in diagnosis and treatment of orthodontic problems. It improves precision in diagnosis, dental practice, and surgery. The iTero scanners are also widely known for their safety and accuracy.

iTero scanning entails the digital capture of teeth and gum structure. This small, hand-held device is time saving, and is available in both 3D and 5D technology. It effectively determines the best course of dental treatment, and is also safe for pregnant women as it is radiation-free. 

Dental concerns such as misalignment of teeth, and bite problems are resolved through orthodontic treatment. The invisible dental braces by Invisalign have emerged as a very popular treatment as it uses advanced technologies, and is superior to the traditional metal braces. The Invisalign orthodontic treatment uses a series of clear, removable aligners, to straighten your teeth. 


iTero Scanner & Invisalign Treatment

The iTero scanner is employed in the invisalign treatment to obtain images of the mouth and jaw which are then put together to create a pathway to a beautiful smile. The results of the recreated smile is used to make the invisalign aligners which ensures that the aligners fit all the curves of your teeth perfectly. The iTero intraoral scanner allows the dentist to obtain a 3D image of the teeth, which will in turn facilitate the orthodontist to create a custom invisalign treatment plan which suits your unique needs.
