Tucson, Arizona (PRWEB) December 21, 2014
Doctor Smiles Orthodontics, a leading provider of orthodontic treatment in Tucson, Arizona is pleased to announce that starting in January of 2015, the practice will begin using the revolutionary iTero Scanner. This scanning technology does away with the need for messy impressions when being fitted for aligners, retainers and appliances. iTero scanning technology utilizes advanced techniques to create highly accurate digital images of a patient's mouth while the patient sits back comfortably and relaxes.
Many people dislike having to sit through messy dental impressions and especially those with sensitive gag reflexes. Instead of having to clench cold, metal trays between the teeth for an uncomfortable period of time, the patient can sit back and relax while the iTero hand-held scanner seamlessly captures 3D digital images of the teeth and mouth in a clean, hassle-free manner. The images captured by the iTero Scanner are far more accurate than impressions made of putty, which helps ensure the orthodontic patient receives the best possible treatment outcome: a smile featuring perfectly aligned teeth and jaws.
During the scanning process, the patient can view the 3D model of their mouth on a computer screen to gain insight into the structure of their teeth and gums like never before. Once the scanning process has been completed in just a few minutes, the orthodontist submits the data electronically to the company that makes the orthodontic appliances (such as Invisalign). This cuts down on the amount of time it takes to make the appliances and aligner trays, allowing patients to start their orthodontic treatment earlier, which is something everyone appreciates.
Dr. Marisela Bedoya of Doctor Smiles Orthodontics is proud that her practice will be one of just four orthodontic practices in Tucson that uses the iTero Scanner. Dr. Bedoya and her staff have successfully undergone professional iTero Scanner training and are looking forward to offering this innovative, safe and very effective digital scanning technology to the patients they serve. Dr. Bedoya is a leading orthodontist in Tucson that offers a wide variety of treatment options for children, teens and adults including clear braces, metal braces, gold braces, Wild Smiles, lingual braces, Invisalign and Invisalign Teen. The iTero Scanner will be a very welcomed addition to the Doctor Smiles Orthodontics practice that is always striving to provide the most advanced, state-of-the-art technology and techniques to the patients it serves.
