When you visit Trü Orthodontics, our skilled orthodontists will use a 3D scanner to more closely examine your mouth. Our advanced digital scanning technology allows us to capture high-quality images of the inside of your mouth so that we can see clearly where the problems are and plan individualized treatments that meet your needs. This scanning technology also helps us in creating custom oral appliances that will be more effective in straightening your smile.
This system allows us to get detailed and accurate records of your oral health without the need for messy, gooey impressions from dental alginate. We get live, instant results that help us accurately and effectively plan detailed treatments to give you the absolute best results possible.
3D scanning is quick, comfortable and non-invasive. We simply pass a small scanning device over your teeth, capturing and processing images almost instantaneously to produce a complete picture of your mouth. The captured images are displayed on a nearby monitor and are backed up automatically, so you will not need to sit through a second scan. The scanning process can also be stopped at any time if you need a break. Our orthodontists can then use the 3D images from the scan to create digital models and oral appliances, more closely examine developing problems, and simulate your treatment outcome.
