Why We Use Digital Images To Plan Invisalign Treatments

Advancements in dental care can lead to better, more comfortable experiences for patients. Sometimes, changes in dental technology can lead to benefits you may not anticipate. When it comes to providing orthodontic care, Invisalign allows patients to enjoy the advantages of a straightened smile without the demands of fixed metal braces, which can interfere with your appearance in frustrating ways. Using Invisalign aligners means you can rely on removable, hard to see appliances to help you change the way you look. What you might not expect is that the iTero digital scanner actually makes it possible for your Rochester, MN dentist’s office to provide a better experience at the start of your treatment. This technology allows for the digital scanning of your bite, which can be used in place of a physical mold to design your aligners.

Using The iTero Digital Scanner To Study Your Smile

With digital scanning technology, it becomes possible to design custom aligners for your smile without requiring a physical mold. Physical molds can be decidedly uncomfortable to make, as they can call for you to sink your teeth into a plaster material. The iTero digital scanner takes an impression of your teeth without this uncomfortable experience. The information gathered from your digital scan even allows your dentist to show you a “preview” of your smile after your treatment is complete!

What Other Benefits Can I Enjoy From Invisalign Treatment?

Invisalign treatments are popular with patients who are bothered by the idea of wearing obtrusive metal braces. In addition to being hard to ignore, they can feel like a problem when you try to eat, or when you need to clean your teeth. Thanks to Propel Orthodontic technology, the process of adjusting your teeth with Invisalign aligners can be shortened. Even though your adjustment experience can be surprisingly pleasant, seeing results sooner can certainly be appealing!
