Your Invisalign treatment consists of a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that you change every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured for your teeth, and your teeth only.
But how can we manufacture aligners that match the exact shape of your teeth? At Impression Orthodontics, we achieve this by using the latest orthodontic technology.
At your free Invisalign consultation we will take impressions of your teeth to be able to accurately determine where your teeth are sitting and how far they need to move to achieve a beautifully straight position.
Once upon a time, these impressions were taken using messy dental clay that caused a sticky mess for both patients and orthodontists. Today, we use technology to accurately assess the position of your teeth. It’s quicker, more comfortable and best of all, there’s no mess to clean up!
ClinCheck® software can determine the movements your teeth will go through over the course of
Invisalign treatment. It allows us to see upfront what your teeth are expected to look like at the end of treatment. We use the impressions from this software to custom-make your clear aligners.
iTero element scanner
The ClinCheck® software is programmed into the iTero element scanner, a small wand-like device that we use to look at your teeth. The impressions we get from the scanner come up on the screen, showing us what your teeth look like.
Since using the iTero element scanner we have noticed a real difference in the accuracy of the impressions we are able to take, which has significant benefit to the fit and comfort of your Invisalign aligner.
At Impression Orthodontics, we want to provide the very best treatment possible for our clients and this requires staying up-to-date with the latest in orthodontic technology. That’s not a hardship for our team because it’s something we love to do. It’s exciting to see what the latest developments in our industry are and how we can use them for the benefit of our patients. The iTero Element scanner is just one example of this!
