When you visit Trü Orthodontics, our skilled orthodontists will use an iTero scanner to examine your mouth. This scan will help us in creating custom oral appliances that will be more effective in straightening your smile. This system works by giving us detailed, and accurate records of your oral health without the need for messy, gooey impressions. It also allows the technician to take 3D images of your mouth making the process comfortable and efficient. Plus, the process is quick, capturing detailed images in a matter of seconds. As this scanner — a small handheld and unobtrusive instrument — passes over your teeth, images are taken and instantaneously transmitted to our computer. Our orthodontists and team are then able to use the images to accurately predict your treatment outcome and create a customized impression that fits your mouth and smile perfectly so that you can achieve the results you desire.
