iTero Element Scanner
No more gagging on messy molds!
Here at Elizabeth Blake Orthodontics patient care, comfort, and happiness are our top priorities. When the iTero Element was introduced, we knew we had to have this “state-of-the- art” system! We are now able to take a 3-D (radiation-free) scan of your teeth and bite which is used to create models of your teeth. The models are used to make retainers, Invisalign, and other orthodontic appliances. Not only does this make our patients more comfortable as we have virtually eliminated the need for messy molds/impressions; we have observed a more accurate fit in all of these treatments. Better accuracy can decrease treatment time which makes everyone happy!
In summary, the iTero Element allows us to offer our patients the following:
- Care - no exposure to the excessive radiation.
- Comfort – no more gagging on invasive, messy molds/impressions.
- Happiness - a more accurate fit in retainers, Invisalign aligners and other appliances which can lead to a faster, more enjoyable treatment!
