iTero Scanner

Braces & Invisalign at Your Rhode Island Orthodontist

At Tollgate Orthodontics, we believe everyone deserves the feeling of confidence that only a beautiful smile can bring. Dr. Eves and his team are proud to create stunning smiles for patients of all ages, through a variety of expert treatments, including Damon braces, Invisalign, teeth whitening, and more.

Your Rhode Island orthodontist uses state-of-the-art technology to help you design the smile of your dreams. We’re proud to utilize the iTero® digital impression system by Align Technology to determine your individual smile needs. Our digital impression system replaces traditional putty impressions, which are uncomfortable, unpleasant-tasting, messy, and sometimes inaccurate. No bulky trays or sticky putty are needed to take your impressions with the iTero scanner, and images are available in a matter of minutes!

Your RI orthodontist will take three-dimensional (3-D) digital images, or impressions, of your teeth and bite. These impressions will help us formulate a personalized treatment plan that meets your specific orthodontic needs and desires. Your orthodontist can also use them to visually show you your treatment options and keep you up-to-date on your treatment progress.

Based on your individual case, the digital impressions allow us to customize your treatment. If you choose braces in East Greenwich, RI or Damon braces as your treatment, we will use the impressions to create customized bracket trays that are used to place brackets onto the teeth, all at one time, with increased efficiency and overall effectiveness. If you choose Rhode Island Invisalign as your treatment, your orthodontist will use these 3-D impressions to fabricate your custom aligners.

Some benefits of iTero digital impressions over traditional putty impressions include:

  • Accuracy: They capture the exact contours of your teeth.
  • Efficiency: They require less time in the treatment chair.
  • Comfort: Taking the digital images is less invasive. No putty is used, and patients are more at ease without fearing they will gag on the impression putty.
  • Customization: They provide a digital plan and allow for trays that are tailored to meet the individual needs and desires of each patient.
  • Visualization: They provide each patient with a definite picture of what their teeth will look like before, during and after orthodontic treatment.
  • Innovation: They use the most advanced 3-D video technologies.
