Digital Impressions with iTero®

Traditional dental impressions involve patients biting down into a tray of goopy dental putty and staying as still as possible for almost a full minute. This can be an unpleasant experience for patients with sensitive gag reflexes and patients who simply do not enjoy the taste or the messiness of dental putty.

Invisalign uses the advanced technology of iTero scanners to quickly capture highly accurate digital impressions. With iTero, a small device is run over the top, bottom, and sides of the patient's teeth, capturing thousands of images. These images are then used to create custom aligners—no dental putty required!

How often will I have to wear my Invisalign aligners?

Once we have your custom clear aligners and you have tried them on to ensure that they fit well, you will be sent home with your new trays and instructed to wear them as often as possible. We recommend that patients try to wear their aligners between 20 and 22 hours per day or any time they are not eating, drinking something besides water, or brushing their teeth. Wearing your aligners as directed will help your treatment plan stay on track, and before you know it, your treatment will be complete!

Will I have to wear a retainer post-treatment?

Once your treatment is finished and your new smile is perfectly in place, a custom retainer will be created for you to wear at night. Wearing your retainer is crucial, as your teeth will likely begin to shift back to their original positions otherwise. Our retainers are also designed and created with our iTero scanners, just like our Invisalign aligners. Should you ever break or lose your retainer, please let our office know as soon as you can so we can get a new one created for you as quickly as possible.
