Creating Orthodontics With iTero® Digital Scanners

fort worth iteroWe offer a number of options to improve your health by treating dental misalignment. We can also address issues with jaw joint strain, such as TMJ disorder. To offer quality treatment, your Fort Worth, TX, orthodontist can take a custom approach using the iTero® digital scanning system, assisting with Invisalign® and more.

Creating Custom Appliances

We use the iTero® digital scanning system to create not only orthodontics, but custom oral appliances too. To begin, our team will use a tiny digital camera at the end of a thin wand to take a series of photos of your smile from multiple angles, a process that is quick and comfortable. We then take these images and use them to create a detailed computer impression of your smile. The impression enables us to design the appliance or orthodontics with precision and accuracy. In fact, this is far more accurate than the physical impressions, and you don’t have to bite down on a metal mold filled with gooey and poor-tasting materials.

Invisalign®, Tooth-Colored Brackets, and More

We could use this to create a series of clear Invisalign® aligners, which we use to shift the teeth and provide individual orthodontics for teens and adults. If you’re receiving braces, then we can use this system to create tooth-colored brackets from ceramic, which we shade to blend with your smile seamlessly, providing less visible braces. We can also create phased orthodontics for kids, like retainers and teeth spacers. If you have TMJ disorder, which causes pain in the head, face, jaw, and neck, we can create an appliance that corrects the jaw to ease strain, and also prevents further damage if you happen to grind your teeth.

Starting Your Treatment

To get started, schedule a consultation with our team. We will use digital x-rays and intraoral cameras to examine your smile and make a diagnosis, so we can create a personalized treatment plan with precision and accuracy. We then decide what type or appliances or braces you need, and move forward with treatment by creating them with iTero®. If you have any questions about how we correct uneven smiles, or how we can provide a cosmetic approach, then contact our team today to learn more. Everyone deserves a healthy and even smile, and we’re ready to help your whole family.
