iTero® Digital Impressions
for an Enhanced Patient Experience
Before orthodontic treatment can begin, special impressions must be taken in order to capture precise measurements of dental contours and tooth placement. Prior to the advent of digital imaging technology, dental professionals relied upon physical impressions; a putty-like material was pressed into the mouth and around the contoured surfaces of the teeth to create a mold. This mold was then used to determine the dimensions of the dentition in order to create restorations, orthodontic appliances, and more. This traditional method of measuring and recording the shape of the teeth was often inefficient, costly, and incredibly uncomfortable for patients. This is among the many reasons why Shirck Orthodontics chooses to utilize the latest in advanced imaging technology with the iTero® Digital Scanner.
iTero Digital Imaging at Shirck Orthodontics
With the iTero scanner, Dr. Jeff and Dr. Jen can easily and quickly take detailed, three-dimensional photographs of each individual tooth, formulating a comprehensive image of all the teeth in your mouth for display on a chairside monitor. The iTero intraoral imaging system drastically streamlines the process of capturing clear, precise pictures of your teeth from every angle, resulting in less time spent in the chair and more accurate measurements for braces and Invisalign clear aligners. This means that you will be called back for redo appointments and adjustments far less frequently, saving you invaluable time and money over the course of your orthodontic treatment.
