iTero is a cutting-edge scanner that eliminates the need for impressions! Traditional impressions are often messy and trigger a gag reflex in some patients. Now, patients can entirely avoid this problem with iTero. The scanner not only provides a more accurate digital impression – it also powers the Invisalign® Outcome Simulator, which helps you visualize how your teeth will look at the end of the treatment process. According to a 2011 Invisalign® study, patients had seven times fewer fit issues when aligners were created by iTero compared to traditional impressions. This high level of accuracy also minimizes the need to call patients back into the office to re-take impressions. Additionally, since Dr. Ross does not need to ship physical impressions, full treatment plans for Invisalign® can be created nearly 50% faster.
