How Does Invisalign Work?

The Invisalign system is an innovative orthodontic treatment that stimulates your teeth using clear aligners. Each aligner should be worn 22 hours a day for 1 week with regular office visits every 8 to 10 weeks in order to check orthodontic progress. Once treatment is complete you will be given a retainer that should be worn nightly in order to maintain your new beautiful smile. Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign averages anywhere from 6 months to 18 months.

What is an iTero Digital Scanner?

iTero is the newest orthodontic technology available in our offices. This technology uses a 3-dimensional scan to give us a very accurate digital model of your teeth. This model will help us determine and create a more efficient and effective orthodontic treatment plan. This technology uses intuitive imaging and software that generates digital models of your teeth that are reproducible and allows real-time consultation with our orthodontists.

How does the iTero system work?

Scanning for orthodontic treatment with the iTero Digital Scanner begins after our trained orthodontic team enters your prescription into the system. This system scans whole tooth images with an ergonomic wand. This wand easily fits into the mouth and helps make this short process more comfortable. We will place the wand over one tooth at a time. The laser light that comes out of the wand, scanning that tooth and then submits that scan back into our computer. In minutes, we are able to utilize this precise 3-D digital model of your teeth to better tailor your treatment plan – that’s right, no gooey impressions!
