McAllen Orthodontic Group is proud to offer digital impressions for our patients using the Medit i700 scanner and the iTero Element scanner. Unpleasant alginate putty impressions are a thing of the past with this revolutionary digital tool.
With the digital scanner, Dr. Joseph Ryan can seamlessly create a 3D image of your teeth in just minutes. With these three-dimensional images, Dr. Ryan can more easily and accurately show how your treatment will look. It also expedites the setup portion of the treatment and the preparation of your appliances!
Quick, Efficient, Radiation-Free
Unlike certain types of medical scanning equipment, including some dental X-rays, our Medit and iTero 3D Scanners do not expose the patient to any radiation. As small as the risk is from the levels of exposure involved with other scanning equipment, you don’t have to worry at all about any risks outweighing the benefits.
