The iTero® Element™ Intraoral Scanner is a high-precision digital scanner that we use for dental treatments. With this technologically advanced device, we can treat patients more effectively and quickly while providing them with a more comfortable and convenient experience. The iTero® Element™ Scanner facilitates better treatments with Invisalign®, tooth restoration, veneers, and dental implants.
Who May Benefit From the iTero® Element™ Intraoral Scanner
At our practice, we can use the iTero® Element™ Intraoral Scanner on patients of all kinds. Even patients prone to gagging can have a comfortable treatment experience. Patients who are uncomfortable with dental impressions can get the treatment they need without any impressions because the scanner accomplishes the same purpose with greater ease and clarity. The scanner can take a picture and then give patients a break if needed, which makes the treatment quick, easy, and painless. Patients who may have been inclined to postpone treatment can feel free to come in anytime because of the experience provided by the iTero® Element™ Intraoral Scanner. Additionally, the scanner provides the clearest available imaging simulation of what Invisalign® or other treatments would do for you, which gives you a better understanding of what to expect from your treatment.

Why We Use the iTero® Element™ Intraoral Scanner
The iTero® Element™ Intraoral Scanner improves dental treatment in several ways. It enables the dentist to take three-dimensional digital scans of a patient’s teeth and bite, adjust the images in real time, and then wirelessly transmit the images for processing. This speeds up the treatment process, allowing each appointment to be accomplished more quickly and reducing the number of times a patient must come in for treatment. The scanner eliminates the need for dental impressions, which gives patients a more comfortable experience. Its incredible accuracy eliminates the need for retakes so that dentists can provide nearly flawless treatments.
