Finally, no more goop, gagging, or discomfort in Invisalign and dental impressions! Using an iOC™ scanner, we can take a highly accurate digital orthodontic impression. This new technology completely eliminates the tray and putty impressions where the experience is comparable to stuffing a big tray of pudding in your mouth. The old technique is often unpleasant and uncomfortable. Sometimes multiple rounds of impressions were needed which could be rejected, broken, or misplaced. An iOC scanner ensures a more accurate impression from the start, resulting in improved orthodontic treatment and a more comfortable patient experience. Digital impressions give you the ability to see your teeth instantly in 3D, improving communication during the consultation and treatment process.
How Does it Work?
The iOC scanner digitally captures the structure of the teeth and gums using the latest optical technology. It scans the mouth with a radiation-free laser and, in ten to fifteen minutes, renders a digitally perfect, 3-D impression of the teeth and soft tissue structures. Through digital software you'll then be able to follow the progress of the scans including a three-dimensional model of your teeth on our computer screen. The iOC scanner can be used for any orthodontic treatment including traditional metal braces and clear aligner-based orthodontic systems such as Invisalign. Impressions taken with the iOC scanner are perfect every time and last a lifetime.
