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 Proudly Offers AcceleDent

Acceledent

Dr. Thomas knows that the idea of spending years or months in braces can be somewhat displeasing for a patient of any age. Dr. Thomas and the Poway Braces team proudly offer AcceleDent as a treatment option to their patients. AcceleDent is a state-of-the-art appliance that significantly reduces the time typically needed for an orthodontic appliance to align your smile.

What is AcceleDent?

AcceleDent is a painless, lightweight mouthpiece attached to an electronic device that is held between your teeth and gently vibrates (known as SoftPulse technology) the teeth and gums. This device is used for 20 minutes a day while undergoing treatment with Dr. Thomas.  The vibration from the device speeds up the process of moving your teeth by stimulating bone movement. This ultimately aids the orthodontic appliance you are currently wearing, and its job to align your teeth. Using AcceleDent, teeth move 38% to 50% faster than with braces alone! AcceleDent is comfortable, safe, and can be utilized by patients of all ages.

What are the advantages of using AcceleDent?

With AcceleDent, you can achieve a perfect smile in just a fraction of the time it would take with traditional orthodontic appliances. In as little as 6 months you can obtain the smile of your dreams with Poway Braces. Have questions about AcceleDent? We would love to answer them.
