Dr. Asmaa Seddik at Guildford Smiles Dentistry use the iTero® Impression Scanner to help plan your Invisalign treatment, and give you an idea of what your results will look like once it's complete.
What is the iTero® Impression Scanner?
This intraoral camera that takes highly accurate 3D impressions of patients' bites. It allows us to make adjustments to treatment in real time, store data digitally, and show patients what their Invisalign results will look like before treatment even begins.
How does it work?
The guided scanning process proceeds through each quadrant of your jaw. iTero's ergonomically designed scanning wand makes this process very comfortable for the patient, and simple for the dentist.
We will capture whole tooth images for a highly accurate scan, resulting in better fitting Invisalign aligners.
We will then perform a full bite scan is completed so that wecan get an accurate idea of the patient's malocclusion. The complete model is then sent to Align Technologies so that the aligners can be created.
With the help of an iTero scan, we can use the Invisalign Outcome Simulator to create a simulation of how the patient's teeth will look at the conclusion of Invisalign treatment.
