|3D imaging is one of the newer technological advancements to revolutionize the field of orthodontics. Our 3D imaging and printer provide more precise treatment planning and appliances. With the advantages of 3D imaging and printing, we can now scan your mouth to create a digital impression of your teeth and gums.
Itero Intraoral 3D Scanner and Promax 3D Imaging
We use a wand-like device, known as the iTero Intraoral 3D Scanner, to procedure high-quality digital impressions. An iTero scan is typically used to design and fabricate Invisalign® aligner trays, models of your mouth, retainers at the end of treatment and/or appliances that may be needed throughout treatment.

The Planmeca ProMax 3D is a groundbreaking device for CBCT scanning. Cone Beam Computed Tomography, or CBCT, is a diagnostic x-ray technique that produces a three-dimensional image of the hard and soft tissues in your face. In orthodontics, we use sometimes use ProMax 3D technology to gather information to customize treatment for you.
Traditional x-rays required a chemical film development process that is tedious, time-consuming, and harmful to the environment. These days, we use digital x-rays for diagnosis and treatment planning. Instead of film, digital x-rays use an electronic sensor to capture images of your mouth. Digital x-rays have some advantages over traditional methods, including higher-quality images, less radiation omission, and instant development!
