Align Technology today announced the availability of its new scanner and imaging systems, the Itero Element Plus Series.
This expands the company’s portfolio of Itero Element scanners and imaging systems to include new solutions that serve a broader range of the dental market.
The new series of scanners and imaging systems builds on the success of the award-winning Itero Element family. It offers all of the existing orthodontic and restorative digital capabilities doctors have come to rely on.
Additionally, it features faster processing time and advanced visualisation capabilities for a seamless scanning experience in a new sleek, ergonomically-designed package.
Available in both cart and mobile configurations, the Itero Element Plus Series offers increased flexibility and mobility. The mobile configuration makes the power of the series portable with a medical grade, compact mobile scanner solution that delivers the same high-quality images as the cart configuration.
Increase practice growth
‘We are committed to meeting doctors’ evolving needs. We designed the Itero Element Plus Series to help them provide the best clinical care for their patients, increase practice growth, and easily integrate digital scanning and imaging into their clinics as a core part of their digital workflow,’ said Yuval Shaked, the senior vice president and managing director at Itero scanner and services business.
‘With over 20 years of innovation in digital orthodontics and dentistry – including intraoral scanners and digital workflows – we are focused on bringing the latest technology to doctors and their patients.
‘We engineered the Itero Element Plus Series with the latest computing power, a dedicated AI chip, and new AI-based features. As well as an easy upgrade path. Making it right for today’s needs and ready for tomorrow.’
The new series solutions offer restorative and orthodontic digital workflows with:
- Enhanced visualisation for optimised patient experience. With higher brightness for clearer and more vivid images, and a fully integrated 3D intraoral camera**
- Faster, seamless scanning: 20% less waiting time for scans to process***
- Future AI-based features
- The Itero Element 5D Plus imaging system includes NIRI technology, which aids in the detection of interproximal caries. The Itero Element 5D Plus Lite imaging system allows for easy NIRI activation via a software upgrade.
Advanced speed and visualisation
Dr Chad Duplantis, a dentist who participated in the limited market release said: ‘The continued innovation that Align brings with each Itero Element scanner elevates the standard of care that I am able to provide to my patients.
‘The Itero Element 5D Plus imaging system allows me to be more productive with increased scanning speed. As well as improve patient communication and treatment conversion with the advanced visualisation capabilities.’
The cart configuration is commercially available in the United States, Canada, European Union countries, Norway, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and India with availability expected in other markets throughout 2021 and 2022.
