• 3D Scanning


    iTero intraoral scanners are designed to deliver speed, reliability, intuitive operations, and outstanding visualization capabilities for general practitioners or orthodontists. iTero scans have been used in more than 1.2 million restorative crowns, bridges, and custom implant abutment cases and more than 1.3 million iTero orthodontic scans, including more than 600,000 Invisalign scans.

    The new iTero Element™ Intraoral Scanner, introduced in March 2015, is engineered to capture 6,000 frames per second, and the image sensor is designed to enable scan speeds that are up to 20x faster than the current iTero scanner, resulting in a real-time 3D visualization of the digital scan – ready in just minutes for viewing on a multi-touch screen. The iTero Element scanner is designed to offer two compact space-saving form factors, a 40% smaller and lighter wand that features built-in controls with integrated gyro technology for rotation of models on screen, as well as a 19” high-definition, multi-touch display. In addition, the ITO defogging system instantly defogs the wand without the need for air or extended warming. System features also include continuous scanning, color scanning, and automatic data saving without the need for battery back-up.

    The iTero scanner’s parallel confocal imaging technology uses optical and laser scanning to achieve a high level of precision and accuracy without powder or complicated hovering. The iTero scanner operates on a single platform designed to work with the iTero Orthodontic Digital Ecosystem, which enables digitized orthodontic workflows and the iTero Restorative Digital Ecosystem, which can enhance the accuracy and precision of the downstream restorative process with numerous third-party partners. The scanners are designed to give customers the best workflow with the Invisalign system and the exclusive Invisalign Outcome Simulator. Training and support is provided both online through interactive, self-guided online training at iTero.com, new interactive virtual classroom training through the webcam available only on the iTero Element scanner, and scheduled webinar group classes and one-on-one virtual support sessions with our team of iTero clinical trainers.

    iTero scanners operate on an open architecture platform, providing doctors and labs with the ability to export custom and generic STL (stereolithography) files of their digital impression to use with other third party dental service providers. The 3D digital model file can be used for various procedures and services including milling of physical dental models for use by labs to create restorative units such as veneers, inlays, onlays, crowns, bridges, implant abutments, and implant crowns, Invisalign digital impression submission, digital records storage, or orthodontic diagnosis.
