Better Technology Means a Better Smile

Our Technology Allows us to have Faster, More Accurate, No Impressions with Treatment

Dr. Appel is passionate about using the latest technology to make your braces experience as comfortable, effective, and short as possible.

Utilizing Technology for a Better Smile

iTero and the i-CAT Scanner are amazing Orthodontic tools that create better options for impressions, faster treatment, and safer scanning for our patients while in treatment.

Precision 3D Scanning

iTero helps us generate a 3D model of your mouth that can be used with your treatment, and allows Dr. Appel and you to see what your new smile will be!

No More Impressions!

Most patients hate impressions. They take a long time, and they can be uncomfortable. i-CAT gives us the tools to improve diagnosis and treatment without impressions!

Quicker Results to Straight Teeth

The orthodontic technology we use complements and enhances the treatment plan created by Dr. Appel, which means less time in braces.

How does iTero work?

The iTero scanner takes an incredibly detailed impression of your teeth and gums. Once the scan is complete, we will then have a 3D model of your mouth that can be used with your treatment options. It has the added benefit of enabling us to show you what your new smile might look like.

Fast and Precise Scanning with iTero.

More precise impressions. Fast digital scans.

The iTero Intraoral Scanner is synonymous with high precision. Even under the best of conditions, traditional impressions are still uncomfortable, occasionally unreliable and unpleasant tasting.

That’s why at Appel Orthodontics we utilize the full digital impressions made with the revolutionary iTero® Element™ Scanner. Not only is a digital impression more comfortable, it allows us to make a more accurate impression.
