At Trinity House Orthodontics, we love seeing our patients smile, especially during treatment. We work hard to enhance the treatment experience we can offer our patients, and that starts from the very first appointment.
A key factor of successful orthodontic treatment is being fitted with an orthodontic appliance that is right for you. How we achieve this is by taking an impression of your teeth so you are fitted with an appliance that is custom made for the shape of your teeth and jaws. Comfortable treatment means you’ll wear your appliance more which means better results and often a reduced treatment time.
WHAT DO ORTHODONTIC SCANNERS DO?
Orthodontic scanners are an important part of your treatment set up. These scanners take impressions of your teeth and help our specialist orthodontists to tailor your treatment plan. The information we get from the impressions enables us to identify your orthodontic needs and which appliance you will most benefit from. It also means we can plan your treatment, give you an indication of how long treatment might take and how involved it will need to be.
In other words, having an accurate impression of your teeth is a really important first step to having orthodontic treatment!
At Trinity House Orthodontics, we use three different types of scanners:
Trios Scanner: we use Trios scanners for all new patient appointments for study models. The Trios scanners are suitable for both children and adults and help make the first appointment impression free!
iTero Scanner: our iTero IntraOral scanners enable us to take precise impressions for our Invisalign patients, which is essential for ensuring accurate custom-made Invisalign aligners are designed for treatment.
CBCT Scanner: a CT scanner uses x-rays and computer-processed x-ray information to produce 3D images instead of a standard 2D image. CBCT scans are really helpful for assessing the position of impacted teeth, implant assessments, and to check bone levels and the root length of teeth. We do also offer an outside referral to GDP’s.
