The iTero Element intraoral scanner is advancing dentist’s technology by enhancing the patient experience and increasing clinical precision. It uses parallel confocal imaging technology through the use of optical and laser scanning to achieve accurate scans in colour.
Advances in technology are allowing dentists to provide higher quality work in a more efficient and reliable manner. Rather than using the traditional putty and dental trays, which can be quite uncomfortable, the iTero scanner captures 3D digital images of your mouth in the most comfortable and accurate way, gathering clear 3D scans. In just as little as 60 seconds, the iTero scanner can gather full arch scans.
The main use of the iTero Element scanner is to take digital impressions for cosmetic braces, veneers, crowns, bridges, and dental implants. With this system, the fit can be made the same day, so you don’t have to come back to the dentist twice.
The main advantages of using iTero for impressions is that it is more accurate than other methods, it is faster to record, less prone to errors, more accurate, more efficient, and more comfortable. It also has a feature called iTero TimeLapse which animates an image that compares records over time, and can show tooth wear, movements, and gingival changes.
