ITERO ELEMENT 2 - DIGITAL SCANNING
Just when you thought the Invisalign® process couldn’t get any easier or quicker, out comes the iTero Element 2, digital scanner! At Upland Laser Dentistry, we are proud to announce that we now have the award-winning iTero Element 2 digital scanner for Invisalign®! This cutting edge technology can also be used for crowns, bridge restoration, tooth wear and gum recession prevention, and more!
This technology has the capability of instant digital simulation for a new smile design chairside! The scanner relies on our dentist to use a wand to scan your teeth — it’s that simple! The scans are translated into high-quality digital molds of your teeth that can be used to print a 3D replica, from which all of your aligners will be made. Rather than waiting weeks for an amalgam mold to be made, Invisalign® aligner creators will have your scans before you leave the office. You and your dentist can review your current smile and the corrective plan together. You can actually see your smile transform right before your eyes!
Invisalign For Teens
Teens can be a difficult group for teeth alignment. On the one hand, their mouths are done developing and are ripe for manipulation, but peer pressure, an emphasis on looks, and an active lifestyle are no match for metal braces. Invisalign® allows teens to be teens! Gum, popcorn, and other treats can still be consumed, just removed the aligners. Sports that would traditionally cause mouth injury with metal braces can easily be played with a mouthguard and the aligners reapplied once the game is done. The best part is, the clear aligners allow your teen to straighten their teeth without announcing it to all of their friends.
For more information about Invisalign® for teens, visit the Invisalign® website or contact us to schedule your teen’s evaluation.
Invisalign® First For Kids
For children aged 6 to 10 with severe malalignments, Phase 1 treatment may be recommended. As children grow, their mouth does too and dental problems grow with them. Because these little mouths are still growing and may include baby teeth, this is the perfect time to transition crowding, spacing, narrow dental arches, misaligned jaw, or twisted teeth into alignment to prevent continuing problems.
Conditions Invisalign® First Can Correct:
- Crowded Teeth
- Gap Teeth
- Open Bite
If your child has dental malalignments caused by missing or crooked teeth, thumb sucking, or structural abnormalities, learn more on the Invisalign® site and schedule an evaluation with Dr. Dat Ngyuen at Upland Laser Dental Center today!
