iTero® 5D Technologies
The iTero® Element 5D imaging system combines the latest technologies with NIRI (near infrared imaging) to offer our patients comprehensive preventive oral care. The iTero® Element 5D can create 3D digital impressions while also creating time lapse video footage for comparison over time. It is also capable of detecting and monitoring caries during every routine appointment. Using the iTero® Element 5D allows both the patient and dentist to see detailed images of the teeth and mouth in real time for a better understanding of the status of their oral health.
Impressions have traditionally involved making a mold of your teeth using trays filled with a soft, messy, and often bad-tasting material that would harden around the patients’ teeth and gums, creating a precise model that is then used by the doctors and the lab to plan treatment and create final restorations.
The iTero® Element digital scanner provides a comfortable, and precise way for our office to take precise digital impressions of patients’ teeth. Taking accurate impressions of a patient’s teeth is a highly important part of a large number of dental and orthodontic procedures.
