We are delighted to announce that we have invested in the latest technology for 3D intra-oral scanning for Invisalign teeth straightening and for restorations.

The iTero intra-oral scanner is designed to deliver speed, reliability, intuitive operations, and outstanding visualisation capabilities. This technology allows us to deliver pinpoint accuracy dentistry by taking a highly accurate, digital, 3D image of the inside of a patient’s mouth. For Invisalign teeth straightening this technology allows you to see your teeth moving into the desired position.

The iTero Scanner creates almost flawless images of the teeth and gum tissues the first time, so aligners, retainers, appliances and restorations can be more accurate and fit better.

The time it takes to make these accurate impressions is also greatly reduced with iTero, and there is no need to take impressions multiple times. This means faster delivery time of the patient’s personalised orthodontic treatment.

The patient remains comfortable with no messy impression material and can breathe normally during the digital 3D scan, and the results can be seen immediately on the screen.


The benefits of iTero are many for orthodontists as well as patients. It will give a precise fit for crowns, veneers and bridges in less time than the old method of taking impressions, and there is much less chance that the impression will need to be retaken.
