iTero Digital Scanner
At Bishops Stortford Orthodontic Practice, we make a commitment to deliver the best possible orthodontic treatment - and results - to each of our patients. To ensure we meet this commitment we use the latest techniques and technology, and that includes the iTero Digital Scanner.
What is the iTero scanner?
The iTero scanner is an orthodontic technology system which allows our experienced dental professionals to get an accurate impression of your teeth and jaws. The 3D scanner approach means we can get a clear view of the position of your teeth and the treatment you will require to straighten them.
What is the iTero scanner used for?
Previously, to get an accurate model of your teeth, we needed to take impressions using messy orthodontic material. The iTero Digital Scanner does away with that making the process much quicker, easier and more comfortable - for both you and us. It also gets much better results from which we can have your Invisalign aligners made.
The iTero scanner can be used for any type of orthodontic problem, from jaw misalignment to issues such as crowding and spacing. It can also help us plan treatment for jaw conditions, such as an over or underbite. Whatever orthodontic treatment you need, we can start planning it with precision thanks to the iTero scanner.
Benefits of the iTero scanner
- Allows us to get precise results from which to plan your bespoke treatment plan.
- See the positioning of your teeth and jaws in 3D on the screen before you start treatment.
- More accurate imaging means a more precise treatment plan which reduces the time you need to spend in the orthodontist's chair.
The iTero scanner is a great example of how orthodontic technology is revolutionising the orthodontic industry and benefiting our patients.
