What is the iTero Scanner for Invisalign®?

Our Markham dentists use the iTero dental impression scanner to take detailed digital images and plan your personal Invisalign treatment plan, in real-time. Here's more about what iTero is and how it helps you get the most out of your Invisalign treatment.

At Hunter Dental in Markham, our dentists use the iTero Impression Scanner to take detailed digital images of your teeth and jaw. These accurate images help your dentist diagnose your orthodontic issues and develop a personalized treatment plan.

About iTero

The iTero scanner features a small intraoral wand. This compact design allows iTero to scan the hardest-to-reach places in the very back of your mouth.

By simply moving the want around the inside of your mouth, your dentist can create 3-D dental impressions of your bite in minutes.

iTero & Invisalign

Invisalign is a series of clear orthodontic aligners that can help you achieve a straighter smile without the hassle of traditional metal braces. 

iTero helps your dentist to plan your orthodontic treatment and is compatible with the Invisalign system.

With iTero, your dentist can easily send your digital impressions to Invisalign Technologies where your custom aligners will be created. 

The iTero Process

iTero makes the first step of your Invisalign treatment simple. To begin, your dentist will use the iTero scanner to take a complete 3D scan of your mouth.

After that, your dentist will show you the scan on a computer screen. This will allow you to see how your smile currently looks from all angles. 

Next, your dentist will use iTero technology to show you a 3D simulation of what your smile could look like after your Invisalign treatment is complete. 

Finally, your dentist will send your 3D scan to the lab where the Invisalign technicians will begin to create custom aligners just for you.
