Poway Braces Introduces The Itero Digital Scanner

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.

Working side-by-side with Invisalign, Orchestrate 3D, and AcceleDent, this treatment option couldn’t be easier or more convenient.

Poway Braces offers complimentary new patient exams and scanning. Visit their website: or call 858-748-6200. You can also learn more about this innovative orthodontic practice on their facebook page.

Chelsey's Beautiful Smile

No Down Payment

When I meet new people, I often hear “I’d love to straighten my teeth but it’s just too expensive.” Of course, I follow up with “Have you seen an orthodontist (me) for a consultation?” and the answer is invariably, “No, I just know braces are expensive.”

Unless you have a thorough exam by a certified Orthodontist, you really don’t know what a beautiful smile will cost. Orthodontic treatment is generally priced according to the difficulty of the particular case. Today, I am able to treat the vast majority of my patients in LESS THAN 2 years with beautiful results. My opinion is that ALMOST EVERYONE can afford braces, it’s just how they choose to spend their disposable income. A family trip to Disneyland or a lifetime of beautiful smiles? I also hear “I can afford the monthly payments but the down payment for the braces is just too much.”

In response to that thought I’d like to tell you how our office is working with families during this recession. First is our willingness to lower the down payment to something you CAN afford. Another option is Chase Health Advance or Care Credit Financing. Both of these options have interest free financing and no down payment options. I truly believe if you want a beautiful smile there is a way to afford it. Ask us, we will be happy to help you get on your way to your dream smile.
