Investing in Digital Scanners for Patients Choosing Invisalign
Clear Braces Toronto
Like a unique fingerprint, everybody has a unique gumline and fitting your Invisalign straighteners is of the utmost importance for overall comfort and effectiveness. That is why an ill-fitting aligner not only delays your treatment, but can cause undue stress as you attend multiple dental visits and struggle to get the fit that’s right for you.
Our Lawrence Avenue Dental team stays informed on the newest advancements in the dental technology making dental care more convenient and comfortable for patients. Digital impression scanners are helping dentists, like Dr. Lily Lo, create impressions that yield the best results, the first time! Unlike traditional molds that are messy and just plain awful, digital scanners allow Dr. Lo to capture highly accurate 3D images in just minutes, greatly improving the patient’ overall experience.
“Our end goal of a brilliant and healthy smile hasn’t changed,” says Dr. Lo. “However, technology is allowing us to change the way we approach dental care…bringing more value to our patients. With the iTero digital scanner, we are not only seeing a decrease in the delivery time of the restorative equipment, but increases in the overall accuracy of the product itself. This investment in the patient experience is simply a win-win for our entire Lawrence Avenue Dental family.”
What’s even better is that the iTero digital scanner is 100% compatible with the Invisalign Outcome Simulator so you can see the expected results of your Invisalign treatment before you even begin; and if there are any adjustments required, Dr. Lo can adjust the treatment plan in real-time for clear braces toronto.
The Benefits of iTero
In some cases, a “too good to be true” approach is just that… too good. In this case, the technology has lived up to the hype. Here’s how iTero is changing the way we approach invisable aligners here in North York:
- No mess. With just a simple small wand, Dr. Lo can access even the most remote areas of the mouth.
- Accurate. With its ability to capture 6,000 images per second, the iTero results in highly accurate impressions resulting in fewer re-dos.
- Fast. The scan is typically complete in just minutes.
- No wait. Dr. Lo can send the digital files to the Invisalign lab in Toronto immediately. Plus, there are fewer opportunities for the impressions to be compromised in delivery.
- Results. Before you even begin your first treatment you can see the expected results with the Invisalign Outcome Simulator. That just isn’t possible without the digital scanner and with traditional braces.
We think the iTero digital impression scanner is something to smile about. If you are considering investing in a straighter smile, whether through traditional braces or through Invisalign for clear braces, we invite you to discuss your options with Dr. Lo today.
