Using the latest technology is a great way for us to improve the journey that patients take with us when they choose to have a lengthy treatment like teeth straightening. As we will be working together for some time, it’s important that you feel like each step of the journey is as efficient as it could be. iTero helps us to achieve that during the information-gathering phase when you get braces in Glasgow with Park Orthodontics.
What is iTero?
iTero is a scanner that gathers information that can be used to create a treatment plan for teeth straightening. It works particularly well with the Invisalign method. It creates a 3D digital model of your teeth and this is used for treatment planning and execution.
How does iTero improve your experience of braces in Glasgow?
iTero completely negates the need for taking impressions. For many people, this is a difficult dental process. It used to be necessary for realignment, but the iTero scanner means that this is no longer the case.
iTero creates a much more accurate representation of the teeth than that of the models used previously. This means it’s possible to create better fitting aligners to straighten the teeth. The better they fitter, the more comfortable and efficient they are.
When a member of the team at Park Orthodontics has gathered all the information they need using iTero, they will show you what your teeth will look like at the end of treatment. It can improve your experience of braces in Glasgow when you know where you are headed and that you will be pleased with the outcome.
Finally, iTero gives us all the digital information that we need to send to Invisalign, so they can make your series of aligners. This can be sent in an instant, which speeds up treatment time and improves the level of communication we have with this excellent dental equipment provider.
