The combination of iTero Scanner and Invisalign Teen helps teens through orthodontic treatment in Northern Virginia.

Garai Orthodontic Specialists, a leading Northern Virginia orthodontic practice, is now using the innovative iTero Scanner to perfect Invisalign Teen treatment. iTero scanning technology makes use of an advanced technique to create digital images of a patient's mouth, which are far more accurate than impressions made using bulky trays and putty.

For many people, having to sit through messy dental impressions is uncomfortable and even more so for those with sensitive gag reflexes. The iTero hand-held scanner takes digital, 3D images of the teeth and mouth while the patient sits back and relaxes in complete comfort.

This highly accurate, painless and mess-free scanning technique completely eliminates the need for gag-inducing putty trays while increasing the quality of traditional dental impression techniques.

Dr. Allen S. Garai of Garai Orthodontic Specialists is one the few orthodontists in Northern Virginia to use this cutting-edge technology. Dr. Garai uses the iTero scanner for his patients seeking Invisalign Teen treatment, as it is a fast, reliable, and very accurate way to take impressions of the teeth. Because this impression-free scanning is much more detailed than the conventional method, it allows for better results.

Once the completely safe scanning process is finished in just a few short minutes, Dr. Garai submits the data electronically to Align Technology, which is the company that makes Invisalign aligners. This drastically cuts the amount of time it takes to construct the aligners so that teens start their treatment earlier, which is something most teenagers and their parents appreciate. Because the iTero Scanner digitally captures the structure of the teeth and gums, it ensures a more accurate impression to provide a more comfortable patient experience. Additionally, the patient can view the 3D model of their teeth on a computer screen to see how their teeth and smile will look once their Invisalign Teen treatment is complete.

Dr. Garai is a Premier Invisalign Provider in Vienna and Great Falls, Virginia. He strives to always use the most innovative techniques that result in fewer visits, less missed school/ work, more comfort and shorter treatment times. Dr. Garai has nearly two decades worth of professional experience creating thousands of individualized beautiful smiles. He is very proud to help his Invisalign Teen patients obtain their new, straight smiles as quickly and comfortably as possible by making use of the iTero scanning technology.
