Digital Impressions


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, by Align Technology. Our digital impression system replaces the uncomfortable, unpleasant-tasting, messy and sometimes inaccurate traditional putty impressions. No bulky trays or sticky putty needed!

It’s Fast:

  • Captures an impressive 6,000 frames per second
  • Scanning and producing a visual 3-D image on-screen takes 3-5 minutes to complete for proficient users
  • View 3D scans onscreen immediately
  • Shows oral concerns with visual identification right on screen
  • See a simulation of your potential post-treatment smile
  • Faster delivery times of your personalized Invisalign treatment plan

It’s Accurate:

  • It captures the exact contours of your teeth.
  • Allows for a precise fit of Invisalign clear aligners, retainers and other orthodontic appliances
  • Compare a new scan with the precise stage of your Invisalign treatment. 
  • Vibrant, realistic color images easily distinguish between gingival and dental tissue
  • Eliminates the need to retake impressions

It's Comfortable:

  • No gooey mess associated with impression materials
  • Breathe and swallow as you normally would 
  • No unpleasant taste or smell
  • The smaller wand tip and angled design make scanning more comfortable for patients
