iTero Element Intraoral 3D Scanner
One of the biggest perks of living in this day and age is the advanced technology that allows you to have a pleasant, relaxing visit to the dental office. The iTero Intraoral 3D scanner makes it even better. This tool provides enhanced digital scanning that provides three-dimensional dental images of your mouth.
Intraoral scanners allow for more detailed images of your teeth for better results in the construction of restorations. The iTero scanner provides exacting information that can also be shared with other dental professionals. Scans can be sent to the lab for more accurate results for crowns, inlays and onlays.
Real-Time Visualization of Your Restoration Before You Start Treatment
In the past, you needed to wait until treatment was complete before you could see the results. With the iTero scanner, you have the opportunity to see what your completed restoration will look like even before treatment begins.
In can be challenging to imagine what you will look like when your treatment is complete, but with the iTero scanner, you will not have to wait. Knowing the results in advance is not only exciting, but it is also highly motivating.
Safe and Effective Scanning
The iTero Intraoral 3D scanner is safe. It provides digital information without any ionizing radiation. Certain restorations traditionally required the use of unpleasant impression materials. The iTero scanner provides accurate information without the mess and inconvenience of alginate. No pastes or powders are used for scanning. You can breathe and swallow as you normally would during the scanning process.
The scanning wand uses visible light to capture images of the surface of your teeth and gums. These images are then produced on the screen. You see them in real time and the model is built digitally as you view the scan results.
