iTero Scanner

Even under the best of conditions, traditional impressions were still uncomfortable, occasionally unreliable, and unpleasant tasting. That’s why we’re proud to offer goop-free, full digital impressions with the revolutionary iTero Element™ Scanner. Not only is a digital impression more comfortable, but it’s also much more accurate. The scanner takes an incredibly detailed impression of your teeth and gums. Once the scan is complete, your orthodontist will then have a 3D model of your mouth that can be used with all Invisalign services, including the Invisalign Outcome Simulator to show you what your new smile might look like.

  • No gooey mess associated with impression materials
  • Breathe and swallow as you normally would
  • No unpleasant taste or smell
  • View 3D scans onscreen with your orthodontist immediately
  • Faster delivery times of your personalized Invisalign treatment plan
  • Allows for a precise fit of Invisalign clear aligners and retainers
  • Eliminates the need to retake impressions


A CBCT scan stands for Cone Beam Computed Tomography, a specialized type of X-ray equipment used when traditional dental or facial X-rays are not sufficient. Unlike conventional X-rays, CBCT scans provide detailed three-dimensional images of the dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths, and bone in the craniofacial region in a single scan. This technology rotates around the patient, capturing data using a cone-shaped X-ray beam. CBCT scans allow for the precise detection of small anatomical structures and issues that might not be visible with traditional imaging techniques. This level of detail is crucial for accurate diagnosis and developing effective treatment plans.

At Dutchess Orthodontics, embracing technologies like the CBCT scan is part of our commitment to providing exceptional orthodontic care. By offering our patients access to this advanced diagnostic tool, we are able to visualize complex dental structures in three dimensions, ensuring precision in every aspect of treatment planning and execution.
