Scanning with iTero results in seven times fewer aligner fit issues. Rejection rate of intra oral scans is only 0.4 percent, compared with four percent of PVS impressions. Patients are in a position to visualize how their teeth may appear at the end of Invisalign treatment due to exclusive access to the Invisalign Outcome Simulator.
