iTero Impressionless Invisalign

The Future of Orthodontics – Today

As part of our ongoing effort to stay up-to-date on the latest technology, we now offer digital scanning as an alternative to conventional dental molds. Our iTero digital scanner allows us to take 3D scans of your teeth and bite, and transmit the information wirelessly for fabrication of Invisalign® aligners.

Benefits of Teeth Scanning

  • Fewer rejections: Occasionally, Invisalign® will reject conventional molds due to defects or inaccuracies.  This requires another visit to the office and even more impressions for the patient. The 3D scanner almost completely eliminates the need for “re-takes”, as errors are detected and corrected in real time.
  • Better fitting Invisalign® aligners: In a study of 400,000+ cases, Invisalign® reported 7 times fewer fit issues with aligners made from 3D scans.
  • Faster turnaround time:  3D scans eliminate shipping delays as well as the need for Invisalign® to digitize the physical molds themselves. This will allow you to start your Invisalign® treatment sooner, and will decrease the overall treatment time.
  • Improved patient comfort: No mess or gagging sensation.
  • Simulated outcomes: Patients can see a simulated outcome of what their teeth will look like after treatment, even prior to submitting the case to Invisalign®.

  • With all of these advantages, digital 3D scanning is just one more reason that Gupta Orthodontics is your Plano, TX Invisalign experts.

“Dr. Gupta & his staff are very professional and friendly and they always treated us like family. We have spent a year and a half with some incredible people who always welcomed us with smiles and positive attitudes. It was an amazing journey and now my son has a smile he loves! ”
“I lived with crooked teeth for 34 years and decided that I deserved to have a beautiful smile. I did a lot of research and from recommendations by my friends and a referral from my dentist I visited Dr. Gupta. After 14 months of Invisalign Dr. Gupta was able to transform my smile. I could not be happier with my decision have my treatment done at Gupta Orthodontics!”
“I visited several orthodontists before deciding to go to Gupta Orthodontics. Dr. Gupta’s qualifications were impressive (computer engineer turned orthodontist with a degree from Harvard!). I wanted to go to the best doctor for my daughter’s treatment and after the initial exam with Dr. Gupta we knew that this was the office for us. 18 months later the results have been truly life changing for my daughter. We are blessed to have found this office.”
“As an adult I had some anxiety about getting braces but Dr. Gupta always made me feel comfortable. I never felt out of place. They welcome you by name at every appointment. Dr. Gupta always listened carefully to any concerns I had and addressed them fully. I never felt like he was rushing me through my appointments and I love the fact that he is a perfectionist. This was one of the best decisions I have ever made.”
“I never thought it would be remotely possible to find an office such as this one! Dr. Gupta's office encompasses everything that we could have hoped for. We looked forward to our visits not only because of the VIP experience they gave us at every visit but also because of the amazing individuals that they have on their team! My kids and I feel very fortunate to have found them!”
