Align Technology, renowned for its Invisalign® system, iTero™ intraoral scanners, and exocad™ CAD/CAM software, has added the launch of the iTero Lumina™ intraoral scanner to its offerings.

Designed to redefine the scanning experience, this device boasts a 3X wider field of capture in a 50% smaller and 45% lighter wand, ensuring faster scanning speed, higher accuracy, superior visualization, and enhanced comfort for users, Align states.

The iTero Lumina scanner, equipped with iTero Multi-Direct Capture technology, offers several new features including:

  • Wider Field of Capture and Multi-Angled Scanning: Enables simultaneous capture from multiple angles, ensuring smoother, faster, and more accurate scans.
  • Larger Capture Distance: Up to 25mm, facilitating easy scanning of complex oral regions with minimal maneuvering.
  • Efficient Data Capture: Quickly, easily, and accurately captures more data and detail, eliminating the need for traditional bulky digital cameras and cheek retractors.
  • Enhanced Ergonomics and Comfort: Sets a new standard for an effortless scanning experience, particularly beneficial for kids and teen patients.

“Today we’re excited to introduce the next generation of iTero scanning technology that pushes the boundaries of what the industry has come to expect from a scanner,” Karim Boussebaa, Align Technology executive vice president and managing director for the iTero scanner and services business, says in a press release. “iTero Lumina creates a new standard in digital scanning that achieves exceptional clinical outcomes through more detailed data capture and highly accurate, photorealistic images; increases practice efficiency with an effortless, faster scanning experience; and delivers an elevated, more comfortable experience for clinicians and patients.”

Arie Eshco, Align Technology vice president, global product, marketing, and services, for the iTero scanner and services business, says the latest scanner will only improve the clinician's experience when it comes to digital dental workflows.

“It’s exciting to reveal the iTero Lumina intraoral scanner, designed to meet the needs of doctors and their patients, including a smaller wand with data capture capabilities and the potential to redefine what scanners can do,” Escho says in the press release. “With iTero Lumina, the iTero tools and features that practices use every day with their orthodontic and comprehensive patients – tools like Invisalign® Outcome Simulator, iTero Occlusogram, iTero TimeLapse, and the recently released Align™ Oral Health Suite – are enhanced with faster, more efficient, and photorealistic image capture, making iTero technology an invaluable part of digital treatment.”

The press release also included comments from global orthodontic professionals who have already embraced the iTero Lumina for its enhanced features:

•“iTero Lumina is such a leap in scanning innovation: 6 cameras, increased capture range while floating over the dentition. I can confidently show my patients that I have the best, the most accurate, the fastest and importantly the most effective integration of digital workflow when treating them with Invisalign. I want to apply this innovation to increase my efficiency and efficacy in the Invisalign system, and to deliver the best experience possible for my patients…and that’s what the iTero Lumina allows me to do.” — Dr. Vicki Vlaskalic, orthodontist, Australia

• “iTero Lumina has amazing cameras. You capture multiple surfaces at the same time and when I work with my younger patients, I can take a scan really in a few seconds, especially in mouths where we only have 20/24 teeth, such as early deciduous or mixed dentition patients.” — Dr. Simonetta Meuli, orthodontist, Italy

• “Our practice data shows scanning quality and times have improved with the iTero Lumina scanner, which highlights to the consumer we are all about precision orthodontics and up-to-date digital technology. It’s a tremendous leap forward in imaging and visualization which translates to better communication and patient experience.” — Dr. David Boschken, orthodontist, United States

• “The accuracy, speed and ergonomics of iTero Lumina is ideal for complex scans that require more attention to details and maneuvering. For example, for full arch scans, full mouth reconstructions, multiple restorative units, and conservative preparations like veneers which were some of the most impressive features I've noticed so far during my clinical trials.” — Dr. KarlaSoto, DDS, United States
