Benefits of the iTero® Scanner

When you’re seeing Dr. Doré for Crowley braces or Invisalign, we do everything in our power to make sure that you enjoy the time you spend improving your smile. From your first visit with us to the day you finish treatment, we want you to have an enjoyable experience and even some fun! One of the ways we help make the treatment we provide our patients as comfortable and efficient as possible is through the use of the incredible iTero® Scanner.

What is the iTero® Scanner?


The iTero® Element 3D Intra-Oral Scanner is a state-of-the-art technological wonder that allows us to take digital images of the teeth and jaws for planning treatment with Invisalign aligners. When we use the iTero® Scanner to take highly detailed, 3D images of your mouth, you won’t have to deal with any messy putty or trays that cause you to gag and feel uncomfortable. Instead, you can sit back and relax while we capture the images of your mouth using the handheld scanning wand.
