Orthodontic technology

Technology has revolutionised most industries - and orthodontics is no different. Developments in orthodontic technology have meant patients are now able to enjoy even more benefits from orthodontic treatment.

At Beachside Orthodontics, we’re excited to be using some of the latest technology to bring our patients the very best teeth-straightening results possible. Here’s what we use.

iTero Element Scanner

The iTero Element Scanner is a state-of-the-art digital impression system that eliminates the need for messy putty in your mouth. With our iTero Element Scanner, we can digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is this process far more comfortable than the old putty-based impressions, it’s faster and can offer a superior clinical endpoint.

During the impression process, you can breathe or swallow as you normally would. You can even pause during the process if you need to sneeze or just want to ask a question. The scanner gives us a 3D model of your mouth that we use with all Invisalign services including the Invisalign Outcome Simulator to show you what your new smile might look like post-treatment.

We use the iTero Element Scanner for all patients being fitted with orthodontic devices including Invisalign® aligners, Insignia braces and retainers.

iCat Machine

The i-CAT machine is widely regarded as the industry standard in 3D cone beam (CBCT) technology, giving us high quality images of your teeth, jaw, jaw joints and surrounding anatomy. This special type of x-ray machine takes data which is then reconstructed into 3D images using specialised software. These images allow our doctors to view your teeth and facial bones quickly and easily from all angles. This enables us to make a more accurate diagnosis of your orthodontic problem and enhance your treatment outcome.


While the iTero Element Scanner and the iCat Machine enable us to start your treatment with accurate impressions of your teeth and jaws, once you’re wearing your appliance we have a way that you can speed up your treatment time.

Beyond its efficiency, Dental Monitoring offers the ultimate in convenience and flexibility.
