How does the i-Tero intraoral scanner assist with Invisalign treatment?
The i-Tero intraoral scanner is designed to eliminate the need for uncomfortable impression taking and is shown to improve accuracy by up to 10 times. Say ‘goodbye’ to the ‘goo and the gunk’ used to make those gum shields when you were younger! The high definition 3D images of the i-Tero create a highly accurate digital mock-up of your mouth used to simulate your treatment progression.
It does this by taking hundreds of snapshots and stitching them together to create a 3D digital model of your teeth and gums. The iTero is designed by the makers of Invisalign clear braces and can give you an accurate simulation of your teeth straightening treatment in under 60s. It also allows us to compare previous scans so we can monitor clinical situations such as tooth wear and gum recession.
