iTero™ systems & services

The iTero Element™ intraoral scanner propels today’s dental practice into the future by enhancing the patient experience and elevating clinical precision. Its parallel confocal imaging technology uses optical and laser scanning to achieve accurate scans in color. iTero Element empowers practices in both orthodontic and restorative dentistry with its innovative technology. iTero Element scans are engineered to work with the Invisalign® system, the exclusive Invisalign® Outcome Simulator and Progress Assessment tool.

What's more, it connects to restorative and orthodontic labs, third-party treatment planning, custom implant abutment, chairside milling and lab CAD/CAM systems.

The iTero Element scanner delivers speed, reliability, intuitive operations and outstanding visualization capabilities, all in a compact footprint. With the iTero Element, full arch scans can be taken in as little as 60 seconds* – saving time and improving patient experiences. Engineered to be portable, powerful and intuitive. It is digital innovation that is transforming practices around the world. iTero empowers you to visualize a better practice.

iTero software features and technology

iTero™ TimeLapse compares records over time, visualizing tooth wear, movements and gingival changes. The tool automatically extrapolates past and current scans into an animated image that shows oral changes right on the screen.

Invisalign® system optimization

The iTero scanner is specifically designed to provide the best workflow with the Invisalign® system. The Invisalign® Outcome Simulator chairside application is powered exclusively by iTero scanners to help patients visualize how their teeth may look at the end of Invisalign treatment. This simulated outcome can be shared directly with the patient via email and may motivate greater patient treatment acceptance. Additionally, the Progress Assessment tool on iTero scanners provides an at-a-glance ability to see if Invisalign treatment is tracking to plan; showing the patients’ progress may increase compliance and patient satisfaction.

Restorative workflow

Take advantage of numerous third-party workflows and solutions simply by connecting through an iTero scanner. Doctors can send digital impressions to the lab of their choice and communicate seamlessly with external treatment planning, custom implant abutment, chairside milling, and laboratory CAD/CAM systems. iTero intraoral scans can enhance the accuracy and precision of the downstream restorative process.

Third-party scanner interoperability

Align accepts case submissions for its clear aligner products in two ways: (1) physical impressions of the patient’s teeth or (2) intraoral scan of the patient’s teeth. With respect to intraoral scans, Align accepts scans from iTero scanners and certain third-party scanners that have interoperability relationship with Align’s systems and processes. To see a list of third-party scanners for which Align currently accepts Invisalign aligner case submissions, please see the below document.
