Our office embraces the latest innovations in dentistry to provide a higher level of care for our patients. Among one of the latest groundbreaking technologies you’ll find is the iTero Element 5D Imaging System. It is the most advanced intraoral scanner. The unique imaging system eliminates the need for multiple devices to capture the data necessary to create personalized treatments through precise diagnosis. Whether used for diagnostic, restorative, or orthodontics purposes, you’ll enjoy unmatched accuracy to take your oral health to the next level.
The small wand-shaped digital scanner has an intraoral camera that can be moved around the inside of the mouth with ease. It captures 5-dimensional impressions of your teeth for unmatched clarity. It is the first hybrid dental imaging system that records 3D, intraoral, and NIRI images simultaneously. This unique diagnostic tool can be used for a variety of applications due to its features, including:
The iTero Imaging System uses Near-Infrared Imaging (NIRI), which allows us to see the inside of the tooth to view its internal structure. By looking beyond the surface, we can use the information for better diagnosis and treatment plans. In fact, we can even see decay before it is visible on an X-ray, as well as small cracks. We will have a close-up view of your enamel and dentin to catch issues early.
While the imaging system is often used for diagnostic and restorative purposes, it is also invaluable to the outcome of Invisalign treatments. It features a one-minute alignment demonstration, so patients can see the changes that will be made using a time-lapsed simulation. You’ll be able to see exactly how your teeth will be moved before committing to any treatment plan.
With iTero Element, the days of holding a messy, foul-tasting material in your mouth are over. Instead, you’ll benefit from a quick and painless scan to get the information necessary to create precise restorations, including crowns, bridges, and more.
Diagnosing cavities has never been easier because the technology allows us to see areas of weakened enamel in even the most difficult locations, like between teeth. We can view variations in the tooth’s structure and shape without using any harmful radiation.
When it comes to your oral health, don’t settle for anything less than the best. Harness the power of advanced imaging using a simplified approach at our modern dental practice.
