We're proud to use only the latest in advanced orthodontic technology in our office, including the cutting-edge iTero Intra-Oral Scanner.

What Is the iTero Scanner?

The iTero Scanner is an intra-oral scanner, which means it's an imaging device used to scan the inside of the mouth. Essentially, it's a handheld wand with a specialized camera at the tip. The wand is small enough to comfortably move inside the mouth, allowing our Verrado orthodontist to easily access every area of the teeth. The scanner is used to create a 3D computer model of your teeth, helping us study your bite in detail and understand your orthodontic condition without the need for messy putty impressions.

How Does It Work?

During your initial consultation, our Buckeye orthodontist will use the wand to scan every area of your teeth. As your orthodontist uses the wand, it takes hundreds of pictures of your teeth from a wide range of angles. Then, the iTero System uses advanced computer software to splice these images into a complete 3D computer model of your bite. This gives us an effective way to visualize and model your bite without impressions, which require you to sit with uncomfortable dental putty in your mouth for 10 minutes.

What Are the Benefits of the iTero Scanner?

One of the most obvious benefits of iTero is that it doesn't require the use of dental putty, which is both messy and somewhat uncomfortable for patients – but that's not even the half of it. The true benefits of iTero come in the advanced capabilities of the computer software.

In addition to being more accurate than impressions, the 3D model of your mouth generated by iTero can be manipulated to plan treatment and simulate tooth movement. This let's us plan each step of your orthodontic treatment in detail, visualizing the movement of your teeth and even showing us what your smile will look like at the end of treatment. It makes the orthodontic process more accurate, more reliable, and more effective – and if you'd like to see it in action, we'd love to speak with you.
