We can now scan your teeth digitally with our iTero Element-2 scanner. This state-of-the-art technology allows us to create a digital image of your teeth, replacing the need for the rather messy and sometimes unpleasant conventional impressions (moulds). You can even see how your teeth may look after treatment with our Outcome Simulator, helping you visualise the results before they happen.

This process is done as part of your orthodontic assessment and planning in our dedicated scanning surgery. A hand-held “wand” is used to capture the digital image of your teeth. It is passed slowly over all surfaces of your teeth, creating a detailed image of both dental arches and bite. The digital image appears immediately on the touch-screen display. The scanning process is easy, comfortable and takes just a few minutes.

Once you have had your scan, your orthodontist will be able to show you your teeth on screen and highlight how orthodontic treatment may benefit you.  Once we have agreed the appropriate orthodontic treatment, the scan of your teeth can be sent instantly to the relevant laboratory for the construction of your brace.
