Precision with Technology Means Better Orthodontic Results for You
Whether you are an adult seeking orthodontic care at Papandreas Orthodontics or your child is beginning the road to orthodontic care, you can rest assured that only the latest in technology is used to give you precise results. Papandreas Orthodontics takes advantage of one of the latest advances in the field of orthodontics by using the iTero Intraoral Scanner. This means avoiding the use of X-rays as this highly effective scanner uses a handheld device to scan a patient’s mouth and map out a plan of action for treatment. It is most commonly used in combination with Invisalign treatments as Dr. Papandreas uses the Invisalign Connectivity feature.
The Benefits of iTero when Combined with Invisalign
This specialized scanner can be stationed next to your chair, or your child’s, after a scan has been performed, making it possible to see a representation of the teeth before and after treatment with Invisalign. When the results are visible and you know what you can expect from your orthodontic treatment, it makes it much easier to accept the road ahead. A set of beautifully aligned teeth is worth the wait.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Invisalign treatment consists of the use of clear aligners that are made from medical-grade plastic. After using the iTero scanner and 3-D imaging, Dr. Papandreas will have aligners created for you that are tailored to fit your mouth, or your child’s. Every two weeks, a new set of aligners is worn as the teeth are gently shifted into the proper position. The length of treatment time and cost is comparable to traditional braces. Best of all, Invisalign is practically invisible. No one needs to know that orthodontic treatment is underway. The aligners can be removed during contact sports, special events, and to perform a thorough, oral hygiene regimen each day. Many patients find Invisalign to be one of the most convenient ways to achieve orthodontic correction. It’s recommended to wear the aligners for at least 22 hours a day to achieve the best results, but patients can avoid mouth irritation and don’t have to feel self-conscious while wearing their aligners.
