Impressions Go Digital
Traditional dental impressions involve biting down into a tray filled with messy putty and holding it in your mouth as you try not to gag. Uncomfortable? Yes. A necessary part of your orthodontic treatment? Not any more. At our high-tech offices in the North Denver suburbs, we use the iTero digital impression system. This cutting-edge solution allows us to take quick, comfortable digital scans that are converted into a highly accurate, 3D model of your mouth. Dr. Carolyn Cronin and Dr. Scott Czarnik can use the model to plan your treatment and design custom appliances, ranging from clear aligners to retainers.
How Does the iTero® System Work?
A Cronin & Czarnik Orthodontics team member scans your teeth and gums using the compact iTero wand. The hand-held wand captures continuous images in motion. The process is fast, painless, radiation-free and you can breathe normally during it. The system’s software turns the scans into a computerized, 3D rendering of your mouth.
Dr. Cronin and Dr. Czarnik can move each individual tooth directly on the computerized model to create a personalized treatment plan and design appliances, including Invisalign® aligners and retainers. The system even lets the doctor show you a visualization of what your smile will look like when you finish treatment!
The lightweight, compact wand captures images of your teeth and gums as it moves. Scanning is quick, accurate and comfortable.
High-definition, detailed images are converted into a lifelike, 3D model of your mouth. Your orthodontist can then plan your treatment down to the smallest detail and even show you your future results.
iTero scanning is safe for patients of all ages, including children and pregnant women, and the wand doesn’t emit any radiation.
Scanning only takes a few minutes and the images are sent almost immediately to our screen. This means no waiting for film to develop and shorter appointments.
