Providing teens with a unique and positive experience that they can’t find elsewhere is a primary goal for my practice. In short, I strive to make a good impression by providing treatment that’s effective yet also comfortable. I accomplish this by incorporating the latest technology into the practice of orthodontics.
Of particular relevance to your teenagers, who may be interested in pursuing treatment using Invisalign®, is our iTero® Element™digital scanner. It’s used to take 3D “impressions” (models) on each patient, allows us to avoid using that uncomfortable, gooey, impressions material that is typically used. At the same time, it provides more precise information for better fitting Invisalign aligners (and can even allow for shorter appointment times!)
Here’s how it works: With a scanning wand, we’re able to take hundreds of photos of a patient’s teeth in just minutes. These digital pictures are displayed on our computer, providing 3D imaging of your teen’s mouth from any angle. And, after I decide on the treatment plan, your teen can even see the outcome of their smile ahead of time!
And the final result of using our iTero scanner? Faster turnaround time, and perfectly fitted aligners. So the next time you hear the word “impressions,”– don’t worry! We’re sure to make a good impression with your teen.
