iTero Intraoral 3D Scanner
3D imaging is one of the newer technological advancements to revolutionize the field of orthodontics. Our 3D imaging provide more precise treatment planning and appliances. With the advantages of 3D imaging, we can now scan your oral cavity to create a digital impression of your teeth and gums. We use a wand-like device, known as the iTero Intraoral 3D Scanner, to procedure these high-quality digital impressions. An iTero impression is typically used to design and fabricate Invisalign® aligner trays. Each tray in your series is custom-fit to slowly move your teeth to a more proper position.
Cone Beam CT Scan
A cone beam CT scan is a diagnostic tool that produces a 3D representation of your teeth, gums, nerve pathways, and underlying bone structure within a single image. We typically utilize cone beam CT scans when a regular x-ray is not enough. Cone Beam Computed Tomography, or CBCT, is a diagnostic x-ray technique that produces a three-dimensional image of the hard and soft tissues in your face. In orthodontics, we use cone beam CT scans to gather information on your temporomandibular joint (TMJ).
Traditional x-rays required a chemical film development process that is tedious, time-consuming, and harmful to the environment. These days, we use digital x-rays for diagnosis and treatment planning. Instead of film, digital x-rays use an electronic sensor to capture images of your mouth. Digital x-rays have some advantages over traditional methods, including higher-quality images, less radiation omission, and instant development!
