3D scanning for Invisalign. The environmentally friendly choice for your Invisalign treatment in Vaughan.
3D Scanning For Invisalign
At Walt Orthodontics, we believe in our patients comfort and convenience which is why we are proud to announce the addition of 3D digital scanning in our office. There are many key advantages to the 3D scanning when working with our orthodontist and Invisalign invisible braces. First, your comfort! Patients no longer have to endure the gooey mess that is required when impressions of teeth are taken. You simply get to sit back and relax while the ergonomically designed scanning wand is placed in your mouth and a 3D image is generated.
The technology is so precise that often times this leads to more successful ortho cases and outcomes because the 3D rendering of your teeth is very accurate allowing for a snugger fit of the Invisalign aligners throughout your orthodontic treatment plan. Also patients love that they don’t need to take multiple impressions with the Alginate Impression material, (patients like to refer to it as goop!) To learn more about Alginate and why 3D scanning is a a better option, read our blog article “Dr Walt Making an Impression. Why 3D scanning is great.”
One of the wonderful features of 3D scanning technology is that you get to see what your smile will look like at the end of the Invisalign treatment plan. This is truly a great feature of the system and is one of the reasons why we invested in the technology for our patients. It allows us to help you better visualize the results at the outset of treatment and gives you that much more reason to work with the Invisalign system.
As explained in our brief video, you also get to save time during your visit as scans take less time then taking impressions.
