What is Invisalign iTero?

Invisalign iTero functions on an open software, allowing your dentist to share your impressions easily. Moreover, this innovative technique will help Dr Tinkler predict your treatment with Invisalign aligners from the beginning to the end with detail and precision.

Improving the Invisalign process with an iTero scanner

More and more dentists are switching from traditional putty impressions to Invisalign iTero in recent years. Invisalign iTero in London is more practical for many reasons. Firstly, you don’t have to be subjected to a putty impression that will cause mess and discomfort. iTero scans are more accurate and are quicker to capture compared to traditional impressions. Moreover, Dr Tinkler will evaluate the results of the scan right away. Unlike traditional impressions that can be less accurate because of the nature of the material used, iTero scans are very precise and reliable, leading to fewer rejections from Invisalign and fewer issues with aligners overall.

Digital scanning revolutionising patient experience

Invisalign is one of the newest, most innovative teeth straightening options on the market. Using the latest in technology and dental materials, Invisalign straightens teeth in a highly discreet manner. Traditional teeth straightening often involves metal brackets and wires, which although highly successful, compromise the way you look. Since the apparatus are fixed in place, you have to commit fully to a lengthy process of straightening with this system. However, Invisalign are created from clear plastic, 3D printed to fit your teeth perfectly. The aligner, rather than brace, is almost invisible and completely removable. With the invention of a precise scanning system, straightening can be achieved with pinpoint accuracy with Invisalign iTero. In London, Dr Graham Tinkler offers this service to enhance patient experience.

Why, In London, Invisalign iTero improves treatment

The process of printing your Invisalign series of aligners starts with taking images of your mouth. Traditionally, impressions will have been made using dental putty to provide measurements for aligner production. The putty itself has a slight taste and consistency that some people find unpleasant. The iTero scanner takes images of your mouth without the need for impressions and therefore dental putty, enhancing patient experience. In addition, the scanner creates pinpoint accurate 3D images.

The advantage of iTero precision and 3D images

Thanks to the imaging process, you and Dr Graham Tinkler will have access to complete, 3D images of your mouth. This makes visualising the end result possible, so you can see what Invisalign can create for you before you even begin. In addition, the series of aligners that will need to be printed to achieve this result, can be charted with pinpoint accuracy by Dr Tinkler at the clinic in London. Invisalign iTero scanning cuts down any adjustments or additional treatments many patients require for treatment when iTero scanning is not employed.

Receiving your Invisalign

Once your Invisalign are printed, you will have a first fitting appointment. We will discuss care and use during this appointment. You can then start the straightening process by wearing your first aligner. Only removing them for cleaning, eating and drinking, they need to be worn for 7-10 days, replacing them for the next in the series after this time frame.

Is Invisalign Itero in London more effective than regular impressions?

Invisalign Itero in London

The use of Invisalign Itero by many dentists around the world has convinced many people that it is the best way to create very precise aligners for each stage of the treatment.

Conventional impressions

Before the introduction of digital scanning with Invisalign Itero, Invisalign treatment involved taking traditional impressions. The dentist would fill a tray with a stick, gooey material and would make the patients bite hard into it, so that accurate impressions of the teeth would be made. Traditional impressions are very cheap but they are quite problematic because they can cause breathing problems and gag reflexes to the patients, not to mention that they are not always accurate. Non-accurate impressions can delay the Invisalign progress by a long way.

Itero impressions

Invisalign Itero in London offers an overall better experience for patients who are undergoing Invisalign treatment. This small, portable wand will never make you gag because it doesn’t occupy a lot of space in your mouth. The dentist will take a quick scan of your teeth that will produce hundreds of high-quality images of your mouth, which will then be used for creating for aligners and for predicting your treatment to the end.

The level of precision and accuracy of Invisalign Itero in London allows Dr Tinkler to create a better treatment plan with attention to every little detail that could otherwise go unnoticed with regular impressions. More impressively, by using the simulator tool of Invisalign Itero, we can show you what your smile will look like when you finish treatment. Knowing what to expect before you start is important for you and your dentist alike.

Impressions before the emergence of Itero

Before digital scanning with Invisalign Itero in London, dentists relied on traditional impressions. In most cases, these impressions were sticky, messy and very uncomfortable. The tray would be pressed against the patient’s teeth and you’d experience a cold sensation. In some cases, these impressions also cause gag reflexes, resulting in choking and coughing. Last but not least, traditional impressions were not practical because they were not always accurate. In some cases, the dentist had to repeat the procedure a few times before they got an accurate impression of the mouth. It is not hard to imagine the anxiety and discomfort that most patients were subjected to with this procedure.

Digital scanning is all about patient comfort

Get the picture?

If you have always wanted to get your teeth realigned but are not so keen on the process of having great wadges of putty put in your mouth to make impressions of your teeth, then you are in for a very happy surprise.

Here at Graham Tinkler, we no longer rely on dental putty to make measurements of your teeth to turn into Invisalign clear aligners. As one of the UK’s handful of platinum-accredited Invisalign providers, Graham Tinkler invests a lot into his equipment and for some while now has been using a digital scanner to make images of your teeth. The Invisalign Itero in London is a hand-held scanner that obviates the need for putty.

Invisalign Itero in LondonHow the Invisalign Itero in London works

The scanner goes inside your mouth and it takes a couple of minutes to take hundreds of pictures of your teeth. Unlike dental putty, where you have to be able to keep your mouth open while the putty goes in and while it’s hardening, if you need a break from the Invisalign Itero in London, we can pause the scanning and come back to it. You can have as many breaks as you like, which is important if you have a dental phobia or gag easily.

As the scanner goes along, the digital pictures are sent to a nearby screen where they are built in real time into a 3D image of your teeth, gums and jawbone. Once the image is complete, it can be manipulated using another program to show you how your teeth will need to move in order to align properly. This is a very exciting experience for many patients and gives them inspiration to go forward with Invisalign treatment.

With digital images, it won’t be long before treatment can begin as we can ping the digital information over to the Invisalign factory in the US in no time at all, instead of having to wait several days while solid-state impressions are sent by airmail.

Once your aligners are here, we can start you on treatment, which takes a year on average with you wearing them for at least 22 hours a day.
