iTero Impression Scanner

At Elgin Corners Dental, we use the iTero Impression Scanner to help us plan your Invisalign treatment, and give you an idea of what your results will look like once it's complete.


What is iTero?

The iTero Element Impression Scanner is an intraoral camera that takes highly accurate 3D impressions of patients' bites. It allows us to make adjustments to treatment in real time, store data digitally, and show patients what their Invisalign results will look like before treatment even begins.

How does it work?

First, we'll scan each quadrant of the jaw. The ergonomically designed scanning wand we use for this makes this process very comfortable for the patient.

Whole tooth images are captured for an extremely accurate scan, resulting in better fitting Invisalign aligners.

A full bite scan is also completed so that the dentist can get an accurate idea of the patient's malocclusion. The complete model is then sent to Align Technologies so that the aligners can be created.

With an iTero scan, the Invisalign Outcome Simulator can be used to create a simulation of how the patient's teeth will look at the conclusion of Invisalign treatment.
