At Stork Orthodontics, we are always looking for ways to improve the treatment process for our patients. One way we are doing this is by no longer completing our impressions with unpleasant goop that can prove to be inaccurate. Dr. Stork now uses ITero Element Technology to take gag-free digital impressions to craft your personalized Invisalign treatment plan, even more precisely than a physical imprint! We are so proud to say we were the first office in the state of Iowa to begin using the iTero Element unit and the only one in the greater Des Moines area with it!
The new iTero Digital Impression system allows Dr. Stork and his team to provide you a virtually impression free orthodontic treatment! This unique system eliminates tray and putty impressions which can take up to six minutes to place. Not only is the iTero system more patient friendly, it also ensures a more accurate model and provides you a more comfortable patient experience at Stork Orthodontics. You will be able to watch first hand as your models are generated on the screen!
The ITero system uses an intraoral scanner that captures 6000 frames per second! This innovative technology allows Dr. Stork and our team to continuously scan your teeth and gums with a small hand-held wand. The radiation-free laser scans your mouth in under three minutes and creates a digitally rendered, 3D impression of your teeth and gums. The software allows you to watch as we scan and develop a 3D model of teeth on the screen and help you get started on your journey with Invisalign treatment. The best part is you get the “end result” first!
Dr. Stork understands the importance of a smile you can share with confidence. Additionally, he wants you to feel confident with your decision for your journey to your best smile ever. Here are a few ways to get started:
