iTero® 3D Imaging
Advanced imaging has always been an important part of diagnosing and treating dental health conditions, and the iTero® 3D imaging system is one of the latest iterations of it. Used for digitally analyzing your bite, then planning and designing your customized Invisalign® aligners, the iTero® system utilizes 3D x-ray imaging to create a complete, highly detailed digital model of your teeth and oral structures. The technology allows your dentist to more accurately gauge the level and severity of your tooth misalignment and show you what the results of your treatment will look like with the 3D model.
How the iTero® System Works
To create the digitally scaled model of your smile, iTero® captures multiple images of your teeth and jaws from various angles. However, scanning can be completed in only a few minutes, making it a significantly more comfortable and convenient process than traditional molds. The digital model is also less messy because it doesn’t require the use of molding material being physically placed over your teeth. By designing your Invisalign® aligners using innovative digital imaging technology, your dentist can further ensure the comfort and success of your Invisalign® treatment.
