Using Digital Images To Plan Adjustments

When you start to talk with your dentist about treating problems with poorly aligned teeth, you can find yourself excited for alternatives to treatment with metal braces. Traditional orthodontic appliances have helped many people address malocclusion. With that said, patients who qualify for alternate forms of care can be happy to learn about options like Invisalign, which relies on a series of hard to see and easy to remove appliances. One thing our Rochester, MN dentist’s office does to make treatment more comfortable is use an iTero digital scanner to measure teeth and plan treatment. Patients can find this more comfortable than biting into a plaster mold, and its detailed measurements help us plan treatment that delivers terrific results!

Planning Your Personalized Invisalign Treatment

Invisalign treatment is personalized for the patient who wishes to straighten their teeth. This ensures that their aligners make the right corrections, and it also provides appliances that are the right shape and size to stay secure. Before you begin treatment, your dentist will gather important measurements digitally. With the images we take using our iTero digital scanner, we can ensure that your treatment is successful. We can also show you a “preview” of your smile after you complete your corrective work!

Using The iTero Digital Scanner To Prepare You For Treatment

Our iTero scanner captures 3D digital images of your teeth and oral structures. With these images, we can plan an orthodontic treatment with appliances that are equipped to stay secure while providing the right guidance to move your teeth into position. This is a comfortable alternative to the manual physical molds that other practices can use to capture measurements. It also gives us digital images that we can adjust to show you how your teeth will look when you finish your corrective treatment.

Life After You Begin Invisalign Treatment

Invisalign aligners are easier to fit into your daily life than you may expect. With their clear appearance, you can find it easier to wear Invisalign in social and professional environments. You can also have an easy time removing them on your own, so they are less likely to be in your way when you eat or clean your teeth. Removing them in this way makes it easier to stick to your familiar routine, but be careful not to have them out for too long, as this can throw off your timeline for finishing your adjustment.
