Digital Impressions 


We want to make a great first impression! What is the secret to making a great impression? At Three Leaf Orthodontics, we use our intra-oral digital scanner to ensure that the impressions we take are accurate, efficient, and comfortable every time.

The iTero Element 2 Scanner is a state-of-the-art digital impression system that eliminates the need for messy putty in your mouth. With our iTero Element 2 Scanner, we can digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is this process far more comfortable than the old putty based impressions, but it’s faster and can offer a superior clinical endpoint.

Cone Beam Imaging

 
Patient care and safety are our highest priorities. We utilize a Planmeca ProMax® 3D X-ray system in our office, which brings new possibilities for treatment planning, and maximizes the safety of our imaging procedures.

3D, or Cone Beam imaging, is an advanced form of digital radiography. One simple scan, will produce a 3D image of your entire maxillofacial structure. This image can then be used to diagnose, treatment plan, and educate our patients on their problem areas and how we can customize their care with greater precision.

Using 3D imaging, we have better visualization of the hard and soft tissues of your face and can see your teeth and jaws from several views. This dramatically improves diagnosis and enhances treatment efficiency.

Additionally, our Planmeca ProMax 3D X-ray system uses minimal radiation in scanning and is a much less-invasive process than other forms of imaging.

By utilizing advanced technologies like this, we can provide an effective, efficient, and comfortable patient experience for you on every visit.
