If you have ever had to have a traditional dental impression, you know that they are not very fun. The gloopy material tastes bad and feels worse, often making you gag. But hey, you have to do what you have to do, right?
Well, it ends up that you do not have to do traditional impressions—or at least you do not if you come to Pella Orthodontics. We have a way around the gloopy mess: iTero Element.
The iTero Element is a digital scanners that takes impressions far more accurate than those obtained through traditional means. A small wand is used to scan the dental anatomy in a non-invasive manner, making the process fast and comfortable. In the end, you get a digital impression that is viable for all forms of treatment offered at our practice.
