Conventional vs Digital Impressions
No more goop, gagging, or discomfort. We have 2 iTero scanners, which take a highly accurate digital impression of your teeth and jaw. The new technology completely eliminates impressions, where the experience is comparable to stuffing a big wad of gum in your mouth. The iTero scanner ensures a more accurate impression from the start, resulting in improved treatment results and a more comfortable patient experience. Digital impressions also give you and Dr. Nirenblatt the ability to see your teeth instantly in 3D, improving communication during the consultation and treatment process. Dr. Nirenblatt can use your 3D scan to send to his in-office 3D printer to make your own aligners in about 2 weeks and other dental appliances on-site without having to send them out to a third party lab. The turnaround time is much faster and much more accurate than mail order aligners.

The iTero scanner digitally captures the structure of the teeth and gums using the latest optical technology. Once we begin the scanning process, it can be stopped and started as many times as necessary.
Your mouth is scanned with a radiation-free laser, and in as little as two to three minutes, the laser renders a digitally perfect, 3D impression of your teeth and soft tissue structures. Through digital software, you'll then be able to follow the progress of the scans, including a 3D model of your teeth on our computer screen. The iTero scanner can be used for any orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign®.
