The iTero Element Scanner is a state-of-the-art digital impression system that eliminates the need for messy putty in your mouth. It allows our staff to digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is this process far more comfortable than the old putty based impressions, it’s faster and can offer a superior clinical endpoint.
During the impression process, you can breathe or swallow as you normally would. You can even pause during the process if you need to sneeze or just want to ask a question. The scanner gives us a 3D virtual model of your mouth that we use with all Invisalign services including the Invisalign Outcome Simulator to show you what your new smile might look like.
