iTero® Digital Element™

Our state-of-the-art iTero Element Scanner creates digital 3D models of your teeth and gums. Not only is an iTero Element digital scan far more comfortable than the old putty-based impressions, but it’s faster and provides images for treatment planning that are highly detailed and more precise than traditional impressions.
