What is the iTero scanner?

The iTero Element® 5D imaging system is a digital scanner that provides highly detailed and accurate images of the inside of your mouth. The scanner produces 3D images, and because the images are projected on a screen, you can see what’s going on with your dental health. 

The iTero Element® 5D imaging system scanners have been used to create nearly 43 million scans, for both restorative procedures and orthodontic treatment.

As an intraoral scanner, the images produced with the iTero Element® 5D imaging system scanner are useful if you need:

The scanner provides accurate 3D models of your teeth, and these images can be used to fabricate your restorative appliances. This completely eliminates the need for messy impressions. 

Physical molds can be problematic for individuals with a strong gag reflex, and digital scanning eliminates the unpleasant step of taking molds. Additionally, scans can be sent quickly and easily, eliminating the need to mail physical impressions to the lab.

The 3D models of your teeth depict your current orthodontic status, your progress (assuming you’re diligent about wearing your trays), and your projected results. Seeing what your teeth might look like can be a great motivator when you're working your way through your trays. 

As with restorative procedures, the iTero scanner produces 3D models that eliminate the need to take messy physical impressions.
