Where: Practices wanting to drive treatment acceptance, drive practice growth, and improve or add to their digital workflows across various cases, including preventive, restorative, and orthodontic.
When: This imaging system is well suited for virtually any type of case. It features interproximal caries detection for prevention and can be integrated with Invisalign® orthodontic treatment.
Why: The iTero 5D Plus Imaging System is designed to give clinicians and patients an enhanced experience with an array of exclusive applications. Its enhanced visualization tools are designed to make it easier for clinicians to assess their patients and treatment plans. iTero intraoral scanners offer open connectivity to dental labs. It also features the Invisalign Outcome Simulator that allows patients to view their potential future smile with Invisalign treatment. When using near-infrared imaging (NIRI) technology, which aids in interproximal caries detection, clinicians reported an increase in case acceptance and revenue growth by 71%.*
*How: With NIRI technology, the iTero Element 5D Plus Imaging system aids in the detection of interproximal caries. Its other diagnostic tools include occlusion assessment with the Occlusogram function, an integrated intraoral camera, and the ability to analyze oral health changes over time with TimeLapse technology. The system is said to capture images with just one 60-second scan. It features open connectivity with dental laboratories and other third-party partners for the sharing of patient information. Scan assistance allows for auto-margin marking and auto-trimming of excess tissue. The system also smoothly integrates with the exocad suite of CAD/CAM applications for a completely digital workflow.
