Vienna, VA (PRWEB) August 17, 2014
Dr. Allen Garai and the team at Garai Orthodontic Specialists have always strived to stay on the cutting edge of orthodontic technology. By utilizing the new iTero optical scanner, they are doing just that.
iTero is an incredible new piece of equipment that can create a complete, incredibly detailed 3D computer model of a patient’s teeth simply by using a small, convenient, and comfortable imaging wand. The wand is waved over every surface of the teeth, taking hundreds of pictures as it goes. Advanced computer software then compiles these images into a fully functional, detailed 3D computer model that can be further edited and perfected on screen. This model is then used to formulate a treatment plan for Invisalign, perfecting the calibration and treatment process.
Before iTero, the only way to get molds of teeth for Invisalign was with impressions. This process consisted of biting into a thick paste of gummy modeling putty and waiting for it to harden into an impression of the patient’s teeth – an unpleasant, time consuming process. iTero eliminates the inconvenience of this process while dramatically increasing the accuracy of the position data, allowing for an easier experience for the patient and increased effectiveness of treatment.
As one of the few Northern Virginia orthodontists to utilize this technology, this is just one example of Dr. Garai’s commitment to his patients and their oral health. He and his orthodontic team work hard to provide the absolute best in orthodontic care.
