Comfort and dentist are two words that most people don’t put together, but in this month’s blog, I’m here to tell you that it is possible when we can use the technologies designed for – you guessed it – your comfort.
If you’re coming to see us for Invisalign® treatment, you won’t have to sit through goopy, unpleasant tray-and-putty impressions. That’s because we have an iTero® digital impression system – designed with your Invisalign treatment in mind.
How does it work? With this intraoral scanner, we are able to capture a highly detailed 3D image of your mouth, which appears in front of both of us on a screen. The entire process is painless and only takes a few minutes to complete. And because iTero has Invisalign® certified connectivity, we can send your scans directly to the lab – digitally – so you can have your aligners in less time.
Some of the major benefits (besides those already mentioned) are …
- Your clear aligners will fit better than if we were using traditional impressions.
- Discover your smile outcome. We can show you what your straight smile will look like – before you even put on your first aligner!
- Invisalign Progress Assessment. You’re able to track your progress when you visit us for Invisalign treatment
- Better communication. Since you’re able to see what’s happening with your smile, it improves communication between us during the consultation and treatment process.
As an Invisalign provider in Omaha, I rely on this technology all the time. Patients are amazed when they see how their smile can transform over the course of treatment. And I’m able to make necessary adjustments, so that you get the results you expect.
Wondering if Invisalign is right for you? I’d love to hear from you. My team will set up a consultation when it suits you.
I look forward to providing precise, convenient, and … comfortable dentistry to you and your family.
Yours in excellent dental health,
Dr. Steven Wegner, your dentist in Omaha
