iTero Scanner

iTero Intraoral ScannerUntil recently, creating a personalized braces or Invisalign plan required that patients sit through the long and tedious process of making teeth impressions. This involves sitting in your orthodontist chair with a mouth full of dental putty—unable to talk or swallow—for nearly ten minutes.

Nowadays though, many practices like Dunn & Schreiber Orthodontics have moved on, embracing new innovations like the iTero Intraoral Scanner. Gone are the days of lengthy putty impressions in our practice. The iTero Intraoral Scanner (by Align Technology) utilizes an optical scanning wand to create fully-realized, 3D digital models of our patients’ teeth, jaws, and bites. 

The iTero Intraoral Scanner is cleaner, easier to use, and much more precise than putty impressions. As such, many orthodontists across the country are relying on this new technology to develop customized treatment plans for their Invisalign patients. In fact, as of March 2016, iTero has been used in more than 1 million Invisalign® scans.
