You won’t find messy putty and tray impressions at Piskai Orthodontics. Instead, we use the iTero® system to take quick, comfy digital scans.
Goodbye, Goopy Impressions
With traditional dental impressions, you have to bite into a tray filled with goopy putty and try not to gag as you hold it in place. Being the high-tech practice we are, we don’t do that here at Piskai Orthodontics. Instead, we take fast, incredibly precise digital dental impressions with our iTero scanner. The process is mess-free, convenient, and painless.
How Does the iTero Scanner Work?
A team member uses the handheld iTero wand to take clear, high-quality digital images of your teeth and gums. From the images, our software generates and stores a 3D model of your mouth. Dr. Piskai then uses the model to create your personalized treatment plan and fabricate your custom orthodontic appliances. She’ll even be able to use the Outcome Simulator to show you what your new smile will look like before you start treatment.
Benefits of iTero Digital Impressions
The iTero scanner transmits high-definition, detailed images of your teeth, ensuring perfect-fitting appliances and accurate treatment planning.
The wand continuously snaps images of your teeth and gums in motion, and the images show up instantly on the computer screen.
No gagging or goop! You can breathe and swallow normally while we scan your teeth, and the process only takes a few minutes.
The iTero scanner uses optical and laser technology to take images, so you’re not exposed to any radiation during the process.
