Invisalign Digital Impressions

Itero Digital Impression Technology for Invisalign Braces

Dental impression technology has only gotten better over recent years. Our offices in Danbury, Newtown, New Milford and Shelton use the latest innovative  Itero Digital Impression Technology.  Using this groundbreaking technology, Dental Associates of Connecticut can take a high quality imprint of your teeth while also eliminating the discomfort and pain usually associated with the traditional tray and putty impression material technique. This cutting edge orthodontic impression technology captures an exact image of your teeth and guarantees that you will get a perfect fit for your new Invisalign braces.

Some of the benefits you can expect with Itero digital impression:

If you have ever had a traditional impression taken, you know just how uncomfortable the process is. The putty is messy, tastes extremely unpleasant, and in many patients can cause gagging. With digital impression technology, the only thing that touches your teeth is the tip of a hand-held wand.

Greater Speed: The digital impression is complete in approximately 15 to 20 minutes and there is no need to retake the impression because an area of the teeth was missed in the traditional impression.

Reduced Anxiety: The scanner is a compact, hand-held wand. Once the orthodontist begins the scanning process, it can be stopped and started as many times as necessary. You’ll never feel like you are going to gag or choke.

Accuracy: The digital impression system creates an exact replica of the anatomy and contours of your teeth. This results in a more accurate fitting Invisalign aligner.  The digital scanner captures multiple images of the teeth with a laser light. The computer software utilizes mathematical algorithms to piece the images together into a perfect model of the smile.
