The orthodontist uses a small wand to scan the entire region of the patient’s mouth. These scanners ensure that the scanned images are captured more quickly, and results are produced more accurately. Then, a complete 3D dental impression is immediately created. Once the impression is generated, the patient will be able to see his/her smile from all angles on a computer screen. Along with this, the orthodontist will show you any points of concern, therefore offering the best possible dental treatment or solutions.
In the event the iTero scanner is used for Invisalign aligners, patients will be presented with a 3D simulation of their smile after completing the process. iTero Element scans are engineered to work with the Invisalign® System.
Moreover, iTero intraoral scans are also being used for the creation of dentures and dental crowns, preparation for oral surgery, and dental records.
