The latest in orthodontic technology

We work hard to make sure orthodontic treatment is easy for our patients! At Schroeder Orthodontics, we emphasize continuing education with our staff and embrace innovative and new breakthroughs. Both of our offices in Southlake and Colleyville, TX are outfitted with cutting-edge technology that we use to provide our patients accurate and precise treatment.

Because of our devotion to the latest and greatest orthodontic technology, we are incredibly proud to have become a top 1% Invisalign provider worldwide. Below are some of the other technologies we use to complement our orthodontic treatments.

 

iTero® Digital Impressions

No more goop, gagging, or discomfort. Using an iTero scanner, we take a highly accurate digital impression of your teeth and jaw. The new technology completely eliminates conventional tray and putty impressions. The old technique frequently results in taking multiple rounds of impressions that can be rejected, broken, or misplaced.

The iTero scanner ensures a more accurate impression from the start, resulting in improved treatment and a more comfortable patient experience. Digital impressions also give you the ability to see your teeth instantly in 3D, improving communication during the consultation and treatment process.

How Does it Work?

The iTero scanner digitally captures the structure of the teeth and gums using the latest optical technology. The scanner is a compact, hand-held wand. Once your orthodontist begins the scanning process, it can be stopped and started as many times as necessary.

Your mouth is scanned with a radiation-free laser, and in as little as two to three minutes, the laser renders a digitally perfect, 3D impression of your teeth and soft tissue structures. Through digital software, you’ll then be able to follow the progress of the scans, including a 3D model of your teeth on our computer screen. The iTero scanner can be used for any orthodontic treatment, including Invisalign.
