iTero® Scanner


iTero Digital Scanning

To develop your treatment plan, our orthodontist needs a clear view of your smile and the immediate area. In order to get that view, Dr. Richard Risinger will use our iTero® digital scanner in Glastonbury, Connecticut. This is an easy way for Dr. Risinger to diagnose any issues with your smile and create options for resolving them. Call Risinger Orthodontics at 860-633-8321, and we will be happy to help you get ready for your appointment.

Using iTero digital scanning, we can get a full image of the current state of your smile without the goop and mess of manual impressions. This means you no longer have to sit in the dental chair for long minutes while trying not to taste the impression paste, and we can get a more accurate picture in seconds.

This technology is also helpful for continuing to plan your orthodontic treatment as it goes along. Using the iTero scanner, our orthodontist can get a precise understanding of how your treatment is progressing and what, if any, changes need to be made.

If you have any further questions about the iTero digital scanner and how we use it to make your treatment comfortable and easy, please contact us! Each member of our team is skilled and happy to answer any questions or concerns you have about your orthodontic treatment.

Our office uses iTero® digital scanning to view three-dimensional images of the inside of your mouth. iTero digital imaging is a state-of-the-art technology that captures high-quality images of your teeth and supporting structures, making it easy for our orthodontist and team to diagnose problems and provide effective treatments. The iTero scanner captures up to 20 images per second in full color, allowing us to easily distinguish between healthy and diseased tissue, build accurate digital models of your mouth, and create appliances and restorations that fit and function better. iTero technology can even simulate your treatment outcome to show you what your end result should look like!

When our orthodontist or hygiene team scan your mouth, a small wand will be used to quickly and comfortably scan the inside of your mouth. As the wand passes over your teeth, the images captured will be processed simultaneously to provide an immediate, complete and highly accurate image of your mouth. The pictures are even saved automatically every few seconds, so there is no need for you to sit through a second scan.
