Why We Use Digital Dental Scans Instead Of Physical Molds

Modern dental technology can improve your experience during your Invisalign treatment, even before you receive your aligners. Orthodontic patients in the past had to provide physical molds of their bite, which involved sinking their teeth into an uncomfortable plaster material. This could have an unpleasant taste, and feel uncomfortable. Fortunately, your Rochester, MN dentist’s office can scan your smile using iTero digital scanning technology. An iTero scan provides a 3D image that you can see. Your dentist can even use the information collected with iTero to show you a preview of how your smile will look after you conclude your Invisalign treatment!

Using A Modern Approach To Orthodontic Care

People who were concerned, or self-conscious, about metal braces can be excited by what Invisalign offers. The lack of change to the way you look while you wear your aligners can be especially important to teen patients with crooked teeth, and it can benefit those in a professional setting. Invisalign offers a more attractive way to fix problems with uneven spacing or alignment. These appliances also provide a more convenient experience, as they can be removed by you.

Enjoying Additional Benefits From Propel Orthodontic Technology

Propel Orthodontic technology offers another improvement for patients undergoing Invisalign treatment. By using Propel, your dentist can reduce the amount of time you spend waiting for your adjustment to be complete. Many patients who rely on this can have their results finished within one year!

What Kind Of Benefits Can Straightening Your Smile Offer?

Straightening your smile can offer big cosmetic benefits, but there are other advantages that are attractive to patients. Your bite alignment can be affected by your crooked teeth. Fixing the issue can reduce strain on your jaw, and avoid disproportionate wear and tear on teeth. You can also have an easier time cleaning portions of teeth that have been difficult to access.
