We believe this scanner will help us better serve our patients.
Gainesville, VA (PRWEB)

Gainesville Dental Associates announced this week that they are using a new digital scanning system, the iTero Element Intraoral Scanner. The iTero Scanner provides detailed and accurate digital impressions of the teeth and gums. This makes it possible for dentists at Gainesville Dental Associates to create an effective treatment plan for straightening their patient’s teeth.
Until recently, teeth straightening required multiple putty-based impressions to be made before treatment could begin. The iTero Scanner eliminates this need. The iTero Scanner works quickly and efficiently to make accurate impressions of the teeth and gums. Patients are able to breathe and swallow during scanning. The scanning process can even be stopped when necessary.
The impressions made by the scanner can be used to create a 3D model of the mouth. This model can be used to determine the most effective orthodontic treatment plan.
The iTero Scanner includes an Outcome Simulator. This simulator can show patients what the results of Invisalign treatment might look like for them. This innovative system makes it possible for patients to make a decision based on their individual results. No other dental technology can provide that service.
“We are pleased to own and operate an iTero Scanner in our office.” said Dr. Davenport of Gainesville Dental Associates. “We believe this scanner will help us better serve our patients.”
Invisalign aligners provide a discreet, effective and comfortable way to straighten the teeth. The clear aligners can be removed when eating or brushing. Invisalign aligners straighten teeth much faster than traditional braces. Most patients achieve their desired results in as little as one year.
