They transformed nineteen artificial trees into fully decorated trees, each bearing a special theme" We Care really brings a sense of community to the area and we are so happy to be a part of it!

"Gooey" Impressions a Thing of the Past for Invisalign Patients!

Add another item to the list of reasons to consider orthodontic treatment using Invisalign at Jarrell Orthodontics. Patients entering treatment with the Invisalign system no longer have to have impressions made the old school way; Invisalign impressions are now done using our Orthocad iTero scanner. Now, we simply scan the teeth with a wand which creates a digital impression that is used to make the Invisalign trays the patient wears throughout treatment. For the patient, this eliminates the need for impressions made the old way – using a mold filled with a gooey substance that is placed into the patient’s mouth and held against the teeth while the goo solidifies into a model of the patient’s teeth. No more goo, no more gagging, no more discomfort during the impression making process.

Using the Cadent iTero, the creation of Invisalign impressions will be quicker, cleaner, and more comfortable for everyone: patients and staff alike. In addition, we can view the digitized models on the chairside computers immediately, where the patient and their parents can see them. The models generated are even more precise and accurate than those made from alginate impressions.

Using the Cadent iTero system to make digital impressions for Invisalign patients is just one more tool we use to make treatment at Jarrell Orthodontics as comfortable for the patient as possible.
