The Advantages of Invisalign Treatment
How Invisalign Treatment Works
Invisalign vs Traditional Braces
Invisalign Using the iTero Scanner
Dr. Hye Park is one of a small group of dentists who use the iTero scanner to improve Invisalign treatment. The iTero scanner is a handheld device that quickly and painlessly captures highly precise images of your oral structures to create a three-dimensional digital model of your teeth. This allows for improved accuracy in your Invisalign treatment, which means your aligners can fit better and do their job of straightening your teeth more effectively. Without the need for a traditional dental impression, this technology also permits Dr. Park to significantly expedite the initiation of your Invisalign treatment. Last but not least, iTero contains sophisticated technology that projects images of your smile on a chairside screen. This means you can see what your Invisalign results can look like before you even begin.
With Invisalign® clear braces, you can get straighter teeth and a more balanced and beautiful smile, without having to put up with metal wires and brackets. In fact, with Invisalign®, there are no wires or brackets. This advanced orthodontic system utilizes a series of custom-made aligners that can be worn over your teeth to gently move them into the desired position. The aligners are clear, comfortable to wear and can be removed during eating, brushing and flossing. If this solution sounds like it fits your lifestyle, schedule a consultation with Dr. Park today to see if Invisalign® invisible braces are right for you.
