Digital Imaging And Invisalign Treatment

The right approach to Invisalign treatment is one that is tailored to your needs. The design of your clear aligners will be based on the shape and size of your teeth as well as their current positions. To gather the appropriate measurements and ensure that we have the right information, our Rochester, MN dentist’s office uses the iTero digital scanner to capture images of your teeth and oral structures. With the detailed images that we gather, we can plan your personalized orthodontic treatment. In advance of your adjustment, we can even show you a “preview” of your smile after your corrective work is complete!

Planning Your Personalized Orthodontic Treatment With Invisalign Aligners

Invisalign aligners are custom appliances that encourage your teeth to move gradually into more appropriate positions. This treatment can help those affected by malocclusion, and can be an effective means of resolving concerns about teeth that are too far apart, or ones that overlap awkwardly and look out of place. We can recommend treatment to patients who want a more symmetrical and attractive smile, but it is also helpful for those who need to address a bite imbalance, or individuals whose overlapping teeth affect their oral hygiene efforts.

How iTero Digital Imaging Helps Us Plan Your Procedure

Rather than ask patients to bite into a plaster mold to create physical impressions of teeth, we can capture digital impressions with our iTero digital scanner! This makes this early stage of treatment more comfortable, and it also gives us highly realized images that help us plan your procedure. After capturing these images, we can use them to give you a look at your smile after you are finished using your aligners to improve the way you look.

What To Expect After Your Treatment Is Finished

Finishing your Invisalign treatment will provide smile improvements by closing gaps, straightening out overlaps between teeth, and generally making your smile more symmetrical. Completing corrective work can also fix problems with an uneven bite and ease tension on your jaw joints and muscles. To shorten the time you have to wait to see the results you look forward to, we can discuss the use of Propel Orthodontics to safely speed up the rate of your adjustment.
