At Robson Square Dental, we are dedicated to providing our patients with the best possible dental care. Our primary focus is not just aesthetics, but also the functionality of your teeth. Hence, we’re excited to introduce the latest technology that helps us achieve this goal – the iTero Element digital scanner with NIRI technology. This state-of-the-art tool, allows us to revolutionize how we analyze and monitor your smile and oral health.
The Power of iTero Scanner with NIRI Technology
The iTero Element digital scanner with Near Infrared Imaging (NIRI) technology is a game-changer in the field of dentistry. Here’s why:
Enhanced Precision: With iTero, we can capture highly detailed 3D images of your teeth and oral structures, eliminating the need for messy traditional impressions. This precise imaging allows us to plan and execute your treatment with unparalleled accuracy.
Comprehensive Smile Analysis: Our clinical team can now analyze your smile and oral health like never before. This technology helps us detect malocclusions (misaligned teeth) and other oral issues early, leading to better preventative care and more effective treatment.
Patient Comfort: Say goodbye to the discomfort of traditional impressions. iTero is non-invasive and offers a more comfortable patient experience.
The Importance of Addressing Malocclusion
Approximately 75% of individuals have misaligned teeth, a condition known as malocclusion.
Common Types of Malocclusion: Malocclusion comes in various forms, including crowding, spacing, deep bite, open bite, edge-to-edge bite, and narrow arches. Each type can have its own set of challenges and consequences.
The Consequences of Untreated Malocclusion
Malocclusion can lead to various oral health issues, including cavities in hard-to-reach areas, inflammation, bleeding, chipping and wearing of tooth enamel, indentations at the gum line, broken dental restorations, cold sensitivity, jaw pain, and even headaches. Addressing malocclusion early can prevent these problems and ensure your teeth and gums stay healthy.
Invisalign – A Modern Solution for Malocclusion
To address malocclusion and provide our patients with optimal oral health, we often recommend Invisalign. Here’s why Invisalign is an excellent choice:
Aesthetically Pleasing: Invisalign aligners are clear and virtually invisible, providing a discreet orthodontic solution. This is particularly important to our patients who want to enhance their smiles without the appearance of traditional braces.
Comfort and Convenience: Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing you to maintain proper oral hygiene and enjoy your favorite foods without restrictions. They also offer a comfortable fit, reducing the risk of irritation and discomfort often associated with traditional braces.
Effective Malocclusion Treatment: Invisalign’s innovative technology gradually shifts your teeth into the desired position, addressing various types of malocclusion. Our team utilizes the iTero scanner to create precise 3D models, ensuring your Invisalign treatment is tailored to your unique needs.
At Robson Square Dental, we are committed to the long-term oral health of our patients. Our investment in the iTero scanner and our expertise in Invisalign treatment allow us to offer you the best in dental care. By addressing malocclusion early and treating it effectively, we aim to ensure your teeth fit together optimally, leading to improved functionality and longevity.
