Compatibility with Invisalign

 

More than 600,000 patients have been able to use the machine during their Invisalign procedures. The accuracy often provides a better patient experience. With the help of the iTero machine, there are fewer fit issues and as many as 10 times fewer rejections of the product. Most patients report their dentist can provide checkups about 50 percent faster than they could before. The machine even allows for patients to see a simulated picture of how their teeth will look once they are done with the Invisalign treatment.

Education for Oral Health Professionals

 

The creators of the iTero Machine provide interactive and self-guided training for oral healthcare professionals who wish to begin using the machine. Included is four hours of clinical training with an instructor in an interactive online classroom. The instructor will be able to see everyone who is training and will have remote access to the machine. Training is flexible and can be ongoing for refresher courses or to train new employees.

 

Gone are the days of long, tedious and uncomfortable procedures to get imprints of a patient’s teeth. The iTero Machine aims to be an effective and convenient tool for dentist and patient alike.
