King Orthodontics: iTero Element
iTero Element is a digital impression scanning system that is used by orthodontists to create highly accurate 3D scans for teens and adults who are using the Invisalign® system or who require a retainer following orthodontic treatment.
Pittsburgh Digital Orthodontic Impression Scans
iTero Element’s benefits include:
- Mess-free and Comfortable. There’s no gooey mess when you require an impression, no distasteful taste or smell, and you can breathe and swallow as needed while the scan is ongoing. Plus, King Orthodontics will have your digital impressions saved forever if you require additional treatment.
- Quick. You and your orthodontist can view the 3D scans right away. These scans are then used to create your Invisalign plan. Before iTero, a messy impression process involved mixing plaster for models and mailing them out to be built, plus a few extra appointments at the office. Now, the process is streamlined.
- Accurate. The scans taken with the iTero Element have seven times fewer fit issues than those that were designed with traditional impressions. The real-time visualization creates impressions of your teeth and gums that are incredibly detailed. King Orthodontics simply uploads the information to the lab that creates the clear Invisalign trays, and they are fabricated quickly so that you can start working on a healthy smile.
Before iTero Element, patients would have to endure a goopy mess as traditional impressions were made. It was time-consuming and unpleasant for patients. Now, with just the wave of the iTero wand, accurate, state-of-the-art scans are made, and the patients can see both their current scans and the simulated outcome from using the Invisalign system.
