Our office uses the most state-of-the-art technology available to help create the smile you want, which is why we use the iTero®Element™ digital impression system. This digital impression system replaces the uncomfortable, unpleasant-tasting, messy, and sometimes inaccurate, traditional putty impressions. No bulky trays or sticky putty needed!

Using the new Element digital scanner, we can take three-dimensional (3-D) digital images, or impressions, of your teeth, jaws and bite. We are able to capture 6,000 frames per second, instead of only 800 frames per second with older iTero scanners. The Element image sensor is also 20 times faster than the current iTero scanner!

The 3-D impressions help us formulate a personalized treatment plan to meet your specific orthodontic needs and desires. The iTero Element technology was designed to work with specific software, including Invisalign®, the Invisalign Outcome Simulator, OrthoCAD®, and OrthoCAD Viewer. We are able to use your impressions with other software in order to create your custom treatment materials, like Invisalign aligners. In fact, orthodontists report that when using the iTero Element, they have 10 times fewer rejected impressions and 7 times fewer fit issues with their patients’ aligners!
