No Goopy Impressions

The iTero Digital Scanner

The iTero scanner allows us to give you the best treatment with comfort and ease.

The iTero digital scanner enables us to capture a 3D picture of your mouth without messy, uncomfortable impressions.

This means Dr. Rhoads can get the information we need almost instantly instead of sending it off to a lab, so we can start creating your treatment plan immediately.

Not only is this convenient, but it saves you time, and discomfort and ensures you get the best possible treatment.

How the iTero Scanner Works

The iTero scanner scans your teeth with a scanning wand that fits easily and comfortably in your mouth. The wand uses a laser to scan each tooth to create a full, detailed picture of your entire mouth in seconds.

We’ll use this digital model to evaluate your orthodontic needs and create your customized treatment plan. Since the iTero scanner is so precise, you can rest assured that you’ll end up with the best smile possible.

Benefits of the iTero Scanner

  • No need for messy impressions made using putty.
  • Shorter appointment times
  • Fewer appointments
  • More accurate treatment
  • Faster treatment start time, meaning faster results

Choose from innovative treatment options at Rhoads Orthodontic Specialist.


Get a beautiful smile without the hassle of traditional braces.

Invisalign is a clear, comfortable treatment option that uses removable trays to gradually straighten your teeth.


3D-Printed Clear Aligners

This means no one has to know about your treatment, and you don’t need to change your lifestyle.

We also 3D print our own line of clear aligners right in our Cranberry Township office! This can save you time and money.

Soft Tissue Laser

Your gums frame your teeth, but sometimes they cover them up too much.

Dr. Rhoads uses a soft-tissue, orthodontic laser to sculpt the gums around your teeth and improve your smile. She also uses this to fix impacted teeth and avoid needles.


Self-Ligating Rhodium Braces

This system eliminates the need for uncomfortable and unsanitary elastics and ties and gets to work straightening your teeth faster than other treatments do.

They look amazing and blend in better than traditional metal. They apply gentle pressure to your teeth, and you won’t need to have them tightened, either.
