Faster treatment, better results at Harpenden Orthodontics
At Harpenden Orthodontics, we want the best results for each of our patients. But because every patient has a unique set of teeth, we need to take an accurate impression of your teeth and jaws to plan the very best treatment.
We can achieve this using the iTero digital scanner.
iTero scanner for precise results
The iTero digital scanner is state-of-the-art technology which enables our orthodontist and treatment coordinator to take an accurate 3D impression of your teeth. As we view your teeth and jaws, images come up on our computer screen, giving us an immediate insight into what treatment you need.
To get this type of information previously, we needed to take moulds of your teeth, which required the use of messy trays and sticky clay-like material. The iTero digital scanner makes all that a thing of the past as instead we can get a more accurate computerised impression of your teeth and jaws.
Benefits of orthodontic technology
The iTero digital scanner provides both our team, and you, our patients, with a number of benefits, particularly when used in conjunction with Invisalign treatment. Analysis has shown:
- Invisalign aligners made using impressions from the iTero digital scanner achieve a better fit
- Patients have a much better experience at the start of their treatment journey
- Patients receive their treatment plans much faster because Invisalign's 3D animated treatment plan, ClinCheck is compatible with the iTero digital scanner.
For many of our patients, the greatest benefit of the iTero digital scanner is that you can see what your teeth will look like once they're straightened before you've even started treatment. This helps to reassure you the investment you make in your orthodontic treatment will certainly be worth it.
