Digital impression is more comfortable, it’s also much more accurate than the old ways of using plaster. The scanner takes an incredibly detailed impression of your teeth nd gums. Once the scan is complete, your orthodontist will then have a 3D model of your mouth that can be used with all Invisalign® services, including the Invisalign Outcome Simulator to show you what your new smile might look like.
Your orthodontist uses the iTero Element Scanner’s wand to capture images of your tooth surfaces and gum tissue.
You and your orthodontist can follow the scanning progress on the screen.
THE 3D MODEL
The completed scan is available as a 3D model that your orthodontist can use to begin planning your Invisalign treatment.
THE INVISALIGN OUTCOME SIMULATOR
Visualize how your teeth may look after Invisalign treatment. Seeing the “end result” before you decide can take the guesswork out of your decision and put you on the path to the smile you’ve always wanted.
