As your trusted providers of Erie, PA Invisalign, we at Doleski & Wolford Orthodontics want to do all we can to boost the efficiency of your orthodontic treatment. Our office strives to use state-of-the-art technology so we can help you gain the smile of your dreams. One of these technological advances that we’re proud to offer is the iTero digital impression system, by Align Technology.

What Is the iTero System?

The iTero system replaces the traditional putty impressions that many orthodontic offices use to create a mold of a patient’s teeth. These impressions are often uncomfortable, unpleasant-tasting, and can sometimes even make patients gag. With the iTero system, there isn’t need for putty. With this digital scanner, we can take 3-D digital images of your teeth and bite, helping us create a customized orthodontic treatment plan that will meet all your needs. Whether you’re choosing Invisalign treatment or any of our other orthodontic treatments, the iTero system will increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the orthodontic process.

Benefits of iTero

iTero digital impressions provide the following benefits for patients:

  • Accuracy – It can capture the exact contours of your teeth.
  • Comfort – The digital images that are taken of your mouth are much less invasive than using putty. You’ll be at ease, and there won’t be any fear of gagging.
  • Customization – iTero will provide a digital plan that will allow for the creation of trays that are tailored to meet the specific orthodontic needs of a patient.
  • Efficiency – With the usage of iTero, a patient will need to spend less time in the treatment chair.
  • Innovation – iTero uses the most advanced 3-D video technology.
  • Visualization – Images can be shown of what the patient’s final orthodontic result will look like before the treatment has even begun!
