The iTero scanner is a state-of-the-art, advanced digital scanning system that eliminates the need for messy putty! (If you’ve experienced traditional putty impressions, you know how exciting this is.)
With the iTero Element Scanner, Dr. Senties can take a digital, 3D model of the inside and outside surfaces of your teeth and gums. This system is much faster than traditional methods and creates images that are more accurate, detailed and precise than traditional methods.
To accurately capture an image of the inside of your mouth, Dr. Senties and his team will scan your teeth and gums, using the iTero intraoral scanner wand. The wand is designed to fit comfortably in your mouth; you can breathe and swallow as normal.
The handheld scanner will then produce a 3D model of your mouth that we can use to create your treatment plan with any type of appliance. If you choose Invisalign, we can show you a simulation of how your smile will look at the end of your treatment with the Invisalign® Outcome Simulator!
