iTero Technology for Your Orthodontic Care

One of the biggest hassles of orthodontic care has always been the impressions. A big wad of goopy substance shoved into your mouth can be highly unpleasant. It causes a gag reflex in some, and anxiety for others. The impressions can be flawed, misplaced, or broken, creating the need for even more uncomfortable impressions.

The discomfort and anxiety caused by these impressions actually prevents many from getting the orthodontic care they need! This is why I’m so happy about new technology that uses pictures, instead of trays of goopy material to collect the images I need of my patients teeth.

Introducing iTero Digital Scanning Technology

There is new technology being used to avoid this aspect of orthodontics. It is the iTero digital scanning technology, and it uses digital imagery to capture up to 6,000 frames per second. The process results in a real-time 3D visualization of the scan.

The images are far more accurate than the goopy impressions can provide, and the process is much quicker and easier. Most importantly, my patients are much more comfortable and less stressed out about this most inconvenient aspect of orthodontic treatment.

The Advantages of iTero Technology

With digital scanning technology, my patients have a much easier time at the orthodontist. I no longer have to take a tray of goopy material, stretch their mouths wide open, and manipulate the trays as far into the recesses of my patient’s mouths as possible. Often this resulted in their gagging and coughing. The fear and dread of this procedure prevented many people from getting the orthodontic care they needed.

The result of this cleaner, quicker, easier process is a much better treatment plan. The images are clearer and more accurate than the impressions ever were. And as an added bonus, you can see them too. As we wave the wand around your mouth and teeth, the image appears right before your eyes! I think it is great when my patients get to be an active participant in their orthodontic treatment.

These images ensure a cleaner, sharper perspective of the patient’s teeth. As a result the treatment plan is more solid and guaranteed. Invisalign aligners, for example, will fit better. The accuracy and detail of the iTero technology is cutting edge and very exciting. It improves not just the process of getting orthodontics started, but the end result as well.

Family Budget & Flex-Spending Accounts

Family orthodontics budget & Flexible Spending insurance program

 

Family orthodontics budget & Flexible Spending insurance program

Although many patients view dental work as a strictly “aesthetic procedure”, there are actually many oral health advantages that go beyond the cosmetic benefits. Many families are unaware that their Flexible Spending Accounts can be used toward orthodontic treatments. To take advantage of this financial remedy, set aside your future pre-tax dollars upon enrollment & start on your treatments at the beginning of 2017. The earlier the better, as oral problems can worsen which will require more attention & visits to the dentist over time. Maximize your benefits & reduce out-of-pocket expenses!

Say goodbye to “use it or lose it” because the IRS is now allowing unused dollars to carry over. Bring up to $500 to the following year’s funds! In addition, more insurance plans now cover families for orthodontic treatment. We can check your eligibility during your next visit to Dr. Greenberg’s in Pasadena. & Yes, Invisalign® therapy counts! But wait, there’s even more good news…
