At Durham Orthodontics, our highest priority is always our patients. That means providing the very best orthodontic treatments and results in the most comfortable and convenient ways possible. One of the ways that we do that and what sets us apart, is ensuring that we have all of the latest and greatest equipment, technologies, and innovations.
Old Orthodontic Impressions
One of the most dreaded things about orthodontic work is the process to get the molds of your teeth and mouth. In the past, and currently at some other practices, awkward and large trays are placed in your mouth with a gloopy kind of paste. The patient has to hold the tray in their mouth until the putty can set to get a good impression of your teeth. It’s messy, uncomfortable and not very pleasant. But not anymore…
With iTero, at Durham Orthodontics, we use the latest technology to give you a beautiful, straight smile—without the mess! Forget the goop, gagging and discomfort of conventional impressions. Our iTerro scanner takes incredibly accurate digital impressions WITHOUT the tray and putty. Dr. Durham uses a handheld scanner to capture the structure of your teeth and gums. The iTero works without radiation and in just a few minutes. Our system offers you and your children a faster and more effective treatment.
Other iTero Benefits
Many patients will feel like the comfort that iTero offers is the biggest benefit, but this technology has even more to offer. Additional benefits include:
- Gets it right on the first try. Many other impression methods require 2 or 3 tries to get an accurate impression, but iTero usually gets it in just 1.
- Time saving. The system works in under 5 minutes!
- Preview your new smile. The iTero scanner can produce a simulation of your new smile before treatment even begins.
- Eco-friendly. The impression trays and materials produce a lot of trash that the iTero system doesn’t use.
