What are the Benefits of the iTero® Scanner for Invisalign®?

We start all of our Invisalign® patients with an iTero® scan. The system is optimized for Invisalign® connectivity, which means less hassle and increased comfort. The iTero® scanner has seven times fewer fit issues than with traditional impressions so you can be sure your scan will result in Invisalign® aligners that fit accurately. Using the iTero® scanner for Invisalign® offers patients the following benefits:

  • More accurate Invisalign® aligner fit
  • Higher quality measuring and diagramming
  • Faster scanning/impression process
  • More comfortable scanning/impression process – no goop!
  • Less rejections – you only have to scan once

Is the iTero® Scanner Painful or Dangerous?

The iTero® scanner emits harmless light during the scanning process; it will not damage teeth, oral tissue, or even the eyes. As the most comfortable scanning method available, it offers a painless process that minimizes discomfort by eliminating the need for patients to bite down onto impression molds.

What Can I Expect from the iTero® Scanner?

This new, comfortable method of scanning means that the patient no longer needs to clinch down on impression molds, a process that often results in discomfort, difficulty breathing, and an unpleasant taste. The iTero® scanner uses a wand tool that is passed over each tooth individually as its image is captured. The scan is completed in real-time and presented as a 3D model upon completion. The process generally takes less than 15 minutes.
