The iTero Element 5D is the newest offering in a long line of intraoral scanners from Align Technology.
It has near-infrared imaging (NIRI) which allows you to scan the internal structure of teeth in real time by radiation free caries detection and patient education
In addition to the NIRI technology, the Element 5D facilitates integration with Invisalign, including an outcome simulator and progress assessment, and a full array of restorative workflows.
With the added feature of Timelapse you can monitor teeth wear and recession by the display in Timelapse to help convey the disease process to patients so that they understand the urgency.
The iTero Element 5D comes in a couple of different configurations—the traditional iTero wheeled stand with attached monitor and as a stand-alone wand to pair with your laptop, which must meet minimum standards. As with most intraoral scanners, a monthly data fee applies.
