iTero® Element Intraoral Scanner

No Goop, No Mess, No Putty


With the iTero Element Digital Scanner, taking digital impressions is a quick, comfortable process. This advanced scanning technology replaces the need for traditional putty impressions, which means no goop or gagging during impressions! 


The iTero intraoral scanner creates a precise 3-D model of your teeth in only a few minutes. The accuracy of iTero scans allows us to create 100% personalized treatment plans for each patient and achieve highly-predictable results with braces and Invisalign®.

Digital iTero® Outcome Simulator

Ask us to show you your new smile, before you even begin treatment! iTero technology can produce an outcome simulation of your treatment progress and predicted results from treatment. Getting to take a sneak peek at your future smile is exciting and motivating! 

Digital X-rays

We use digital x-rays to capture images of our patients’ smiles, because they’re safer and use minimal radiation to produce high-quality photos. They allow for only an eighth of the exposure that traditional x-rays do!


Advanced technology x-rays are also more comfortable for our patients. We simply place a sensor inside of the mouth to generate an x-ray, and use this information to create your personalized treatment plan.

Experience a stunning new smile

And enjoy the journey along the way.
