Benefits of An iTero Element® 5D Imaging System
The iTero Element 5D scanner is the first intraoral scanner of its kind. It allows us to scan your dental impressions into our software and create a blueprint for your crown, bridge, or denture. This process is completely digital, eliminating any messy impressions you may have experienced in the past. iTero Element scan is now called 5D because it uses a 3D format along with an addition of Near-infrared imaging (NIRI) technology which allows the dentist to scan and see the internal structures of the tooth without x-rays.
The iTero Element® 5D imaging system scanner makes it easy to prep, scan, obtain impressions, and fit your crown in one visit. iTero Element® delivers fast, single tooth scanning and treatment planning. It also provides higher accuracy for scanning and impression capture.
iTero Element® 5D Imaging System Procedure
The iTero Element® 5D imaging system is a revolutionary device that takes a digital impression, or scan, of the teeth and gums. The scanner is handheld, using a wand-like device that glides over the teeth and gums to capture a digital impression. The scanner is a more comfortable experience than traditional impression methods, such as putty impressions.
The iTero Element® 5D imaging system provides benefits for both the patient and dentist. Patients will benefit from the iTero Element® 5D imaging system because it eliminates the need for messy impressions. These impressions can cause patients to feel anxious and uncomfortable. The iTero Element® 5D imaging system allows your dentist to quickly capture digital images of your teeth, jaws, and bite.
