iTero® - Digital Impressions

One of the first thoughts that come to mind when seeking an orthodontic specialist for getting braces is…”does it hurt?” Most patients associate that thought with braces and Invisalign, while being unaware of a necessary procedure before actually getting them on. That procedure is called “impressions.” Maybe you have heard of it. It is the dreaded goo that is squished into your mouth, oozing out of every crevice between your teeth, leaving you with the feeling that you have just been slimed. Some can handle it, but many others are not so lucky. For patients with a sensitive gag reflex, this can be the most dreaded part of getting your teeth straightened.

Now you can breathe a big sigh of relief because Blue Wave Orthodontics uses a digital dental impression scanner called the “Element” scanner by iTero Technology!
This scanner is specifically designed for Invisalign patients, so say goodbye to the goo! This NEW HIGH TECH scanner identifies the tooth by voice and visual commands and performs parallel confocal scanning by capturing 100,000 laser points in perfect focus.
