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.

As technology enters every aspect of our lives, commonly called The Internet-Of-Things (IoT), it gets even better for both you and Orthodontists like me. Both of us can be awe-inspired!
How We Use Computer Technology With Orthodontic Treatments
What you also need to know is that State-of-the Art technology has simplified and virtually perfected the process of how leading Orthodontists approach correcting crooked teeth for children, teenagers and adults.
Using Digital Scanners to Prepare Your Invisalign® Treatment Program
Thanks to the advances in modern technology, we can now combine the iTero™ digital scanner system with Invislign® – an “invisible braces” treatment program – to produce a 3D model of your teeth and gums. The combination of these two great treatments means that you can get in and out of our office in record time. It means less time off work and less time in-between treatments, with greater comfort and precision.
3 Easy Steps To Create Your 3D Impression Before Your Invisalign® Treatment
Forward-thinking Orthodontists look for and are professionally trained in the latest advances in our field. Nothing could be more messy than taking impressions the old way with the “goo” on the tray!
Today, we use digital imaging with the ITero™ system. This is how the system works.
- The Wand – We are fully trained to use the wand to traverse your tooth surface and gum tissue to carefully capture digital images.
- The Scan – You will be amazed to see on the TV monitor your 3D digital impression of your teeth evolve before you very eyes.
- The 3D Model is sent to the computer to build a model of your teeth and gums.
Get Your New Smile Even Faster With Digital 3D Imaging
It’s never been easier, more convenient or more comfortable to see your dental impression in 3D digital format and in real-time.
Gone are the old ways of wiggling a goo-filled tray filled into your mouth that nearly makes you gag. No more dreading the second or third attempt to get your impression just right.
Why Combine 3D Imaging With An Invisalign® Treatment Plan?
- Comfortable – You can breathe naturally, with no gagging, no discomfort or unpleasant taste.
- Safe – It does not expose you to radiation as it uses a laser to generate the images.
- Accurate – Precise fit of Invisalign® braces, aligners and retainers. It eliminates the need to retake multiple impressions.
- Fast – You can see your 3D model in real-time, reducing the wait time to get your new Invisilign® treatment plan.
You already know how computer technology and mobile phones are changing the way you connect, communicate and socialise.
