iTero

 

What is Itero?

iTero is a 3-dimensional scanner that is used by orthodontists to create virtual models of their patient’s teeth. These models are used to design very accurate treatment plans for each individual patient. This amazing new technology allows the iTero scanner to take thousands of photos in a very short period of time. A small wand with embedded camera, is simply passed over and around the teeth by a trained technician. This technique creates a 3D model without using any harmful radiation and so is extremely safe. The scan typically takes about 3 minutes and is done conveniently in the orthodontic office. The virtual model created with our iTero scanners can then be used by Dr. Travers to formulate a personalized treatment plan that meets your specific orthodontic needs and desires.

Scans allow patients to see what their teeth will look like before, during and after orthodontic treatment.
