iTero Scanner - Intraoral Scanner


With recent technology advancements, orthodontic patients are able to spend less time in the office while still attaining a beautiful smile. At Stormberg Orthodontics, we’re committed to using the latest methods and technology to ensure our patients get the most efficient and accurate treatment. In our La Mesa office, you’ll find the iTero install scanner, which provides Dr. Stormberg with precise, 3-D images of the mouth so he can create a customized treatment plan for each patient. 

Traditionally, orthodontic offices would take putty impressions of their patient’s teeth, which are uncomfortable, messy and most importantly, time consuming.  However, at our office, we’ve made the patient experience much smoother, timely and comfortable with iTero digital scans. 

The iTero Imaging Process

Using a digital scanner, Dr. Stromberg will take 3-D digital images of your teeth and bite, that will help him create a customized treatment plan for you. He’ll use a wand that comfortably fits into your mouth, and will scan over each tooth to capture its unique structure and shape. The iTero scanner with create a digital image of your smile, which Dr. Stormberg can show you and keep you up-to-date on your treatment progress. 

Benefits of iTero Over Putty Impressions

The advantages of using an iTero scanner over putty impressions are plentiful. They include:

  • Accuracy & Efficiency: Oftentimes, putty impressions can require multiple attempts to get the right impression, and are messy and uncomfortable for patients. iTero technology eliminates the need for these types of impressions and can shorten your time in the office.
  • Customization: The more accurate your scans, the more effective your treatment. 
  • Easily Follow Your Treatment Progress: Dr. Stormberg can show patients a definite picture of what their smile will look like before, during and after treatment. 
  • Invisalign Compatibility: The iTero intraoral scanner offers unparalleled compatibility with one of our most popular treatment options, Invisalign and Invisalign Teen. After we scan your teeth and bite, the images are sent to the Invisalign lab where precise, custom aligners will be made for each patient. This can minimize your time in treatment, allowing you to achieve an incredible smile sooner than ever before.
