Itero Element 2 Intraoral Scanner
THE FASTER WAY FOR TEETH AND GUM SCANS
We have recently acquired an iTero Element 2 Intraoral Scanner. This is the latest generation of intra-oral digital scanner that gives faster and superior scans of the teeth and gums.
It can be used to predict the outcome of Invisalign treatment using the outcome simulator tool within minutes and the scans can be sent to Invisalign immediately to get a very accurate result for your Invisalign treatment. This is the most streamline and efficient way of getting started on your Invisalign treatment.
This is a state-of-the-art digital impression system that eliminates the need for messy putty in your mouth. With our iTero Element 2 Scanner, we can digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is this process far more comfortable than the old putty based impressions, but it’s faster and can offer superior results. It can be used to produce 3D digital model of the teeth and gums and is used in a variety of dental procedures.
During the impression process, you can breathe or swallow as you normally would. You can even pause during the process if you need to sneeze or just want to ask a question. The scanner gives us a 3D model of your mouth that can be used for different dental treatments:
- Visualisation of potential final treatment of Invisalign
- Invisalign clear aligners and retainers
- Construction of crowns and bridgework
- Dental implants
- Comparison and assessment of tooth wear and gum recession over a period of time
The Itero scanner has also a fantastic tool to monitor tooth wear and gum recession. Scans can be superimposed on each other over a period of time; this gives us a very accurate way of observing the rate with which gum recession or tooth wear is progressing.
Itero scanner scans can be sent directly to Invisalign and the resulting Clincheck can be sent back within a few hours reducing the time lag between using more traditional impressions and the need for them to be physically dispatched, which can take up to two weeks. It streamlines the procedure and makes it quicker and more accurate.
