Visalia Care Dental Now Using iTero Element® Intraoral Scanning Technology

Share Article

When You Need Invisalign®, you need them to fit properly – which is where the iTero Element® Intraoral Scanner comes in.

Straightening teeth is not something that many people enjoy, especially when it comes to braces. Fortunately, Invisalign® is a clear alternative with nearly invisible aligners that have the same effect as braces. Under the direction of Gilbert Lam, DDS, the team at Visalia Care Dental now offers a more efficient process for creating the clear aligner trays you are going to need.

The Invisalign® treatment process involves creating aligner trays that match the size and shape of the individual’s teeth before slowly moving them into the proper position. Thus, the process involves a series of aligner trays that the patient will change out one at a time after several weeks. In order for this process to go smoothly, there needs to be an accurate model of the teeth.

The iTero Element® Intraoral Scanner provides professionals with an accurate 3D image of a patient’s teeth and can help to map out the straightening process. With this precision, Dr. Lam can ensure that patients receive the necessary straightening treatment with Invisalign® aligners that fit. This scanning technology revolutionizes how professionals create any type of attachment or restoration for teeth.

During the Invisalign® process, the team at Visalia Care Dental will also provide follow-up appointments to ensure that the straightening process is continuing without issue. The iTero Element® Intraoral Scanner also helps to efficiently provide patients with dental crowns, bridges and dental implants. This way, people will be able to receive the proper fitting restoration they need.

Many people do not receive dental restorations or Invisalign® aligners from professionals who use the proper equipment, leading to discomfort and other problems that increase oral health risks. At Visalia Care Dental, the team will take all the necessary steps to ensure the safety of patients while also being efficient with the length of the appointment. The iTero Element® Intraoral Scanner will make the entire process much easier and create a better patient experience overall.

Straightening your teeth does not need to be a two-year endeavor that is rife with other issues along the way. If you want straighter teeth in a more efficient way than traditional metal braces, Visalia Care Dental has the treatment you need.
