We are the first orthodontic office in the East Valley to incorporate this amazing new technology. Seeing as how we are the #1 providers of Invisalign® and Invisalign/teen®, it really made sense for us.The old technique of putty impressions was very cumbersome and uncomfortable for patients compared to the iTero™ Scanner. Unfortunately, sometimes multiple impressions would have to be taken, and even then, they could be rejected. Now, we instantly send the scan to Dr. Woolaver’s dedicated technician at Align Technology. What used to take days, now takes minutes. And, most importantly, the accuracy is incomparable.
ITero Digital Scanner Introduction
How Does it Work?
The iTero™ Scanner digitally captures the structure of the teeth and gums using the latest optical technology. It scans the teeth using a radiation-free laser, that takes >100000 images of the teeth per minute! You can watch the progress of the scan as it pieces together a 3D digital model of your teeth on the computer screen.
