See The Future of Your Smile!
Dr. Drabik may need accurate models of a patients teeth to analyze tooth positions and jaw discrepancies. In the past, taking impressions may have been uncomfortable. Today, if necessary, impressions can be done in 15-30 seconds. Also a special spray is available to make impressions more comfortable.
To help patients avoid traditional impressions and enjoy a more comfortable experience, Dr. Drabik now uses fully digital, 100% impression-free images created by an iTero scanner. This technology allows Dr. Drabik to show a patient how their teeth will look after treatment with Invisalign or braces!

How iTero Digital Imaging Works
To create an image of the teeth with our iTero technology, we simply use a small scanner that fits easily into the mouth. We slowly and gently move the scanner throughout the mouth capturing dozens of unique images of the teeth and gums.
After just a few minutes, the scanning process is complete. The iTero software now “stitches” together all of the images into one 3D image. The entire process only takes about three to five minutes. Patients can watch it all unfold on a monitor right next to their treatment chair. This approach to taking images/impressions is not only much faster and less invasive than the traditional way but it also yields an extremely high-quality image/impression the very first time. This is more efficient for both our team and patients because there is not a need for a retake.
iTero Digital Imaging & Invisalign
While iTero digital images can be used with any treatment, they are particularly useful when it comes to Invisalign. Dr. Drabik actually designs a patient’s treatment plan using the 3D images. The entire treatment process is done on the computer to assure efficient tooth movement and ideal results.
Thanks to the technology and Dr. Drabik’s decades of experience, the planning process can be completed immediately after the images are taken. He can show a patient what their teeth will look like at the end of their Invisalign treatment, letting them literally see into the future. This is tremendously exciting and motivating for patients. Particularly for teens using Invisalign, we find this preview helps many stay on track throughout their treatment.
