Poway Braces, located in Poway, California is among the first orthodontic practices in the San Diego County to offer new digital scanning technology to their patients: The Itero Digital Scanner.Dr. William Thomas strives to provide a positive patient experience and using the latest innovative digital technology is not something new for Poway Braces.
The Itero Digital Scanner system eliminates the goop, gagging, and unpleasantness typically associated with the traditional putty impression method. The digital impression procedure ensures a more comfortable experience for the patient, while creating a 3D computer model of their teeth in just minutes.
Using an intra-oral scanner helps the entire Poway Braces team produce even more accurate digital models of a patients teeth which then enables more accurate and precise aligners (like Invisalign and Orchestrate 3D) to be made.
How Does It Work?
Step 1-Scan: The Itero scanning wand captures hundreds of pictures of your mouth within minutes. These images are compiled into a detailed 3D model on the Itero screen. As these images are captured, our patients literally watch their very own mouth and teeth materialized on the screen.
Step 2-Analyze: The digital model is then exported into Dr. Thomas’s Orchestrate 3D software where it is then analyzed and a visual treatment plan is made directly from your intra oral scan. Each tooth is precisely moved and positioned within the software. After your custom treatment plan is finalized, it is then sent for processing and printing of your models; the scan ensures faster results and precise treatment plan formulation.
