iTero Scanning &

3D Printing

ABC Orthodontics uses an iTero scanner to customize certain oral appliances that your orthodontist might recommend for your teeth. Don't worry, no messy impressions at this office! This scan is painless and takes about 10 minutes to complete. Dr. Thayer and our team can go into detail of how our iTero Scanner will benefit your treatment plan during a consultation at ABC Orthodontics.

We also use a state-of-the-art 3D printing technology when creating models for oral appliances, retainers and aligners. 3D printing allows our orthodontist and team to complete your treatment entirely in our office. Having in office printing reduces your overall treatment time and giving us the opportunity to ensure that your treatment is of the highest quality. Additionally, 3D printers reduce your over-all treatment cost when considering orthodontic treatment.

The appliances most frequently created with our 3D printing technology may include:

  • Retainers
  • Aligners
  • Night guards
  • Indirect bonding trays
  • Orthodontic Models
  • Rapid Palatal Expansion (RPE) Appliance
  • Herbst Appliance
