FAQs: Our Digital Impressions

Question: I’m excited to learn that you offer advanced technology but I don’t really know when I might need the iTero Element Scanner. Does this apply to me?

Answer: When it comes to requiring digital impressions, this is something that becomes helpful in a variety of situations. Whether you are interested in Invisalign treatment, crowns, dental implants, or dental bridges, we will need impressions of your smile. This technology makes it very easy.

Question: What makes the iTero Element Scanner better than the conventional method?

Answer: Unlike conventional impressions, which require the use of trays filled with semi-solid material pressed over your smile, digital impressions do not require the trays, the goopy material, or the following:

  • You won’t have to sit completely still and silent
  • You won’t feel like you’re going to gag
  • You won’t experience any discomfort

Question: This sounds so relaxing! How does it work?

Answer: The iTero Element Scanner allows us to take 3D impressions of your smile with a safe handheld wand. You’ll relax, while we’ll will shift the wand over your teeth. You’ll be able to swallow, breathe, and rest, while we do our job!
