Accurate Digital Impressions through the iTero Scanner
Conventional vs Digital Impressions
Good news! At Yang Orthodontics, you don’t have to suffer through the goopy discomfort so often experienced while having dental impressions made. Using our iTero scanner, we can take a highly accurate digital impression of your teeth and jaw in minutes. The scan allows us to view your teeth on a computer screen in a 3-D model, which is more accurate than a traditional mold. This improved visualization allows Dr. Yang to better plan the most efficient and stable treatment plan for moving your teeth. It also helps to determine the best way to place braces and whether additional appliances will be needed. Having a digital impression means that you will have more precise measurements on tooth sizing and spacing. Digital impressions also give you the ability to see your teeth instantly in 3D, improving communication during the consultation and treatment process.
