Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment, used to align teeth. Instead of conventional ‘train track’ braces, clear aligners are used. These are manufactured so that teeth will typically move in small increments.
As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will continue to move – little by little, week by week – until they are straightened to their final position.
At Llantarnam Dental we have two iTero scanning machines. These are used to take lots of little photos of the teeth to create a digital 3D model.
Scans typically take between 4-8 minutes and are primarily used instead of conventional impressions.
Also the Invisalign® Outcome Simulator chairside application is powered exclusively by iTero scanners to help patients visualize how their teeth may look at the end of Invisalign treatment. This simulated outcome can be shared directly with patients via email.
