iTero - Digital Impressions

Feldman Orthodontics is now a “GOO FREE” ZONE!


One of the first thoughts that come to mind when seeking an orthodontic specialist for getting braces is..."does it hurt?" Most patients associate that thought with braces and Invisalign, while being unaware of a necessary procedure before actually getting them on. That procedure is called "impressions." Maybe you have heard of it. It is the dreaded goo that is squished into your mouth, oozing out of every crevice between your teeth, leaving you with the feeling that you have just been slimed. Some can handle it, but many others are not so lucky. For patients with a sensitive gag reflex, this can be the most dreaded part of getting your teeth straightened.

Well, now you can breathe a big sigh of relief because Feldman Orthodontics is now using a digital impression scanner called the iOC Scanner by iTero Technology (aka "The Orthocad Scanner") for Invisalign patients. Say goodbye to the goo! This scanner identifies the tooth by voice and visual commands and performs parallel confocal scanning by capturing 100,000 laser points in perfect focus. Our practice is currently the only practice in Florida to offer this.

Simply put, it digitally captures the form and structure of the tooth and gum line through a series of pictures. No need for goopy impression material. Digital impressions provide greater accuracy when creating the patient model and increased comfort for the patient. Let's be honest, no one likes to gag when giving a first impression...no pun intended.

So, if the thought of seeking orthodontic treatment has you feeling anxious, no need to stress. Dr. Feldman and his experienced orthodontic staff are here to ease your worries by making sure the word "gag" is only applicable to practical jokes. However, you will have to smile really, really big!
