When our dentist and team are getting you started on your Invisalign® treatment, we will use the latest technology to capture an accurate representation of your teeth and create clear aligners that will fit your smile perfectly. At Mirage Dental Associates, that means using the iTero® digital scanner to get a full look at your whole mouth without the mess of taking traditional impressions. To learn more about iTero digital scanning in Castle Rock, Colorado, and how Dr. Michael Moroni can use it for a number of dental treatments, call our office at 720-733-3440 today!
iTero® digital scanning is one of the many dental technologies we feature at our office that helps our team ensure accurate, efficient treatments for our patients, and it is an important part of your Invisalign treatment. Digital scanning allows us to create a three-dimensional model of your mouth by capturing multiple full color images, giving us a full view of your teeth and supporting structures and making it easier to distinguish healthy and unhealthy tissue. These full images also make it easier for our dentist to identify and diagnose potential oral health problems and recommend precise treatments.
These three-dimensional models can also be used to create oral appliances and restorations, such as your Invisalign aligners, that are custom-made to fit your mouth comfortably and function better with your unique needs. iTero technology can even help us predict and model your treatment outcome!
When it is time to scan your mouth using our iTero scanner, our dentist will use a small wand to quickly capture over 20 images per second. These images are immediately processed and used to build a complete view of your mouth, automatically saving every few seconds so there’s a lower chance of needing a repeat scan.
