The iTero Element Intraoral Scanner

The iTero Element can provide the quickest and easiest digital scan you’ll ever sit through. The machine connects to a small wand that allows us to create an accurate image of your teeth. This wand is non-intrusive and won’t even touch your teeth — no uncomfortable biting down is required!

This advanced piece of dental technology allows our team to understand the nuances in your teeth placement, the condition of your bone, and more.

Quick, Easy Scans

The iTero scanner can capture highly accurate digital images in as little as 60 seconds. The full scan appears on the iTero screen when it’s ready. Both our dental team and patients can view the scans, allowing for proper dental health education and a full understanding of what’s going on in each patient’s mouth.
