No Goopy, Gaggy Impressions

We're a digital imaging practice at Nirenblatt Orthodontics and proud owners of an iTero® Element™ intraoral scanner. The iTero Element Scanner is a state-of-the-art digital scanning system that eliminates the need for unpleasant traditional alginate impressions—no more messy putty in your mouth!

We'll Make a Great First Impression

With our iTero Element Scanner, we can digitally capture a detailed, 3D model of your teeth and gums. Our iTero Element digital scan is far more comfortable than the old putty-based impressions, but it's also faster and provides more precise images.

Digital impressions also allow you and Dr. Nirenblatt to see your teeth instantly in 3D, improving communication during the consultation and treatment process. Dr. Nirenblatt can use your 3D scan to send to his in-office 3D printer to make your own aligners in 1 to 2 weeks and other dental appliances on-site without having to send them out to a third-party lab.

The turnaround time is much faster and much more accurate than mail-order aligners.


Say Goodbye to Goop-filled Impression Trays

  • No goop or gag to worry about
  • Great for children when expanders are needed
  • Fast, accurate scan for superior diagnostics
  • Ideal for all types of braces, including Invisalign® and Dr. Nirenblatt's own in-house clear aligners and retainers
  • See a simulation of your potential post-treatment smile with the Invisalign Outcome Simulator (IOSim)

During the scanning process, Dr. Nirenblatt will use the iTero Element Scanner's wand to capture images of your teeth and gum tissue. You can breathe or swallow as you normally would. You can even pause during the process if you need to sneeze or just want to ask a question.

The iTero Element Scanner will give us a 3D model of your mouth that we can use with all orthodontic services, including the Invisalign Outcome Simulator, to show you what your new smile might look like.
