The iTero Scanner is a machine specifically designed to capture high-quality, digital impressions of your teeth that your orthodontist will use when creating your personalized, custom orthodontic treatment plan. The scans from the iTero system are three-dimensional images, captured via a small camera, that moves around your mouth and scans your teeth at every angle.

How Does iTero Affect Treatment

The iTero Scanner helps improve treatment both on the patient and orthodontist side creating a more efficient and comfortable process all-around. On the patient side, the iTero camera system improves treatment comfort significantly by eliminating the need for the traditional putty and tray system in order to get
