Invisalign aligners are some of the least noticeable, most comfortable orthodontic appliances available.
The process of getting your aligners has now been made even more comfortable, streamlined and accurate with the use of 3D scanners, which replace the old technique of taking impressions (moulds) of the teeth. The level of precision offered by this new technology means that patients now have access to an even higher quality of orthodontic care than ever before.
Tony Weir Orthodontics uses the latest technological innovations to ensure that we have the most precise dental moulds and measurements available. This innovation also places us at the forefront for patient comfort. No more mess from dental moulds, no more having to sit still while the mould cures, and certainly no more gagging because your mouth is too full! Not to mention, quick and easy appointment times. The iTero 3D scanner that is used is a slim wand that takes up to 6,000 images per second. In the hands of our experienced professionals, you are sure to love our new 3D scanning technology.
The benefits of such precise technology are numerous. Before orthodontic work has even begun, our team are able to create highly accurate depictions of the expected results. Tony Weir Orthodontics can create near-perfect digital replicas of the inside of your mouth. Using these 3 dimensional digital images, we are able to show you ‘Before’ and ‘After’ 3 dimensional recreations before we even begin treatment! You will even be able to see the path your teeth will follow. Besides being incredibly cool, this is also a great way for your orthodontist to check there won’t be any unexpected issues later down the track. This technology and simulation also assists your orthodontist in ascertaining whether Invisalign will be the best fit for you.
Additionally, the 3D scanning process is much quicker than the traditional process; taking moulds and measurements, fitting and potentially having to refit later. These quick appointments means the Invisalign experience reaches an entirely new level of convenience and comfort.
