How Digital Imaging Affects Invisalign Treatment

When you commit to Invisalign treatment, you commit to an orthodontic procedure that discreetly fixes issues caused by malocclusion, or poor dental alignment. To make sure your corrective work proceeds properly, and to make sure your aligners fit securely, your dentist will need to take close measurements of your teeth and oral structures. Without the proper technology to capture these measurements digitally, it would be necessary for you to bite into a plaster material and create a bite mold, an experience that can be awkward and uncomfortable. Fortunately, our Rochester, MN dentist has iTero digital imaging technology that lets us take 3D images of your teeth and oral structures. In addition to using these images to plan your procedure, we can show you a “preview” image of your smile when your Invisalign treatment is complete! (more…)
