One of the more recent and significant changes to the Invisalign process is the introduction of digital scanning techniques, as an alternative to submitting PVS impressions. Digital scans provide a more accurate dental record, allowing even more precise plans for your Invisalign treatment. No more unpleasant, out-dated impression techniques!
The Cadent iTero digital scanner uses laser and optical scanning to digitally capture the surface and contours of the tooth and gum structure. The data collected via a digital scan is more precise than conventional methods used for taking impressions, such as plaster models. The result – superior accuracy that you, the patient, Dr Chen and his staff can trust!
The technical savvy of digital scans means that patients and dental practitioners are able to watch as the scanned detail of your teeth appears on screen. Your dental practitioner will be able to give you real-time feedback on any dental issues you might have.
With digital scans clinicians can avoid taking messy and often uncomfortable dental impressions. The process is simplified and streamlined, enabling accurate dental records in a more patient friendly and efficient manner. You can be in and out of your appointment in no time!
With single use imaging shields, digital scans offer maximum infection control. It’s the quick and comfortable way to get started towards your new, healthy smile.
No more traditional impressions!
