iTero Element Scanner In Doylestown, PA
Bucks County Orthodontics is proud to offer the most advanced technology to patients in Doylestown, PA and surrounding areas. Our cutting-edge technology allows Dr. Welsh and his caring team to provide patients with an unmatched high tech experience. Admittedly, the old technique of tray and putty impressions is quite awkward and typically results in taking several rounds of impressions that can be rejected, fragmented, or misplaced. Using the new iTero Element Scanner, we can take precise digital impressions of your teeth and jaw with accuracy and comfort.,
Accurate Teeth Impression
The iTero Element scanner ensures a more accurate impression from your first appointment, resulting in faster and safer treatment, and a preferred patient experience. Digital impressions also give you the benefit of seeing your teeth instantly in 3D, so that you can watch first hand as your model is generated on screen, which takes no more than three minutes. From this scan we create digital study models, formulate orthodontic appliances and begin treatment. This novel type of transparency helps you and Dr. Welsh stay in tune from the initial consultation to the end of your treatment.
How Does iTero Work?
The iTero Element scanner digitally captures the structure of the teeth and gums at 6,000 frames per second using break-though optical technology. The scanner is a small, hand-held wand that is connected to a portable computer screen. Your scan is instantaneously displayed on the computer screen, which means you can see exactly what we see for more effective chair side communication.
Your mouth is scanned with a radiation-free laser and the laser immediately creates a precise, 3D impression of your teeth and soft tissues in your mouth. Dr. Welsh can then use this visual to show you the predicted 3D model movement of your teeth directly on the computer screen. Our practice takes advantage of this advanced technology on most of our patients undergoing orthodontic treatment, while we also use it for making Invisalign aligners.
Bucks County Orthodontics is proud to offer the highest quality of orthodontic treatment with the new iTero Element scanner.
