iTero Element Scanner
in New York City & Manhattan, NY

What is the iTero Element Scanner?

When it comes to many different dental treatments and procedures, your dentist will need to have a detailed model of your teeth and gums (cast record). In the past, this process entailed messy impressions and expensive lab models in order to give a rendering of your mouth. The process was often uncomfortable or had adverse side effects for patients such as gagging. Today, however, the latest in technology allows us to recreate a 3D rendering of the teeth and gums using non-invasive, radiation-free scanning in under 5 minutes. Dr. Chern uses the iTero Element Scanner in her Manhattan practice to enhance your dental treatment experience so you’re comfortable and worry-free. The iTero Element is a type of intraoral scanner which provides a detailed rendering of your teeth and is also an excellent educational tool.

Dr. Chern was friendly, professional, and efficient. She spent a lot of time with me and my teeth and took time to answer my questions thoughtfully. What a wonderful trip to the dentist!

The iTero Element Scanner is an advanced dental technology that provides a more accurate model of the teeth and oral tissues. 

The iTero Element Scanner produces 3D renderings of the teeth and gum tissue with a quick and easy appointment. It can be used for a variety of treatments, including:

  • Crown fabrication
  • Dental implant impressions
  • Veneers fabrication 
  • Restorative dentistry
  • Invisalign
  • Nightguard fabrication
  • Time Lapse capability to track recession and enamel wear
  • Invisalign simulation ability in under 1 minute
  • 5D technology to monitor potential cavities

Benefits of the iTero Element Scanner

Radiation-Free Treatment

With this new technology, there’s no need to worry about radiation that comes with other options like x-rays. It instead uses laser energy to map out your teeth and oral tissue, letting Dr. Chern see an immediate topographical image of your mouth.

No Impressions Needed

Impressions can be uncomfortable at best. The iTero Element Scanner eliminates the need for messy, unpleasant impressions. There’s no need to re-take impressions, either, since the iTero Element Scanner produces extremely accurate results.  Many patients prefer the iTero Element scanning process because they can avoid the mess, discomfort, or gagging caused by traditional methods of making models of the teeth.

Fast Results

With traditional impressions, it can take quite a few extra steps to create appliances like Invisalign and nightguard models. The iTero Element Scanner produces immediate results that can be used to fabricate your treatment devices. The system works seamlessly with other dental technologies, including Invisalign.

The iTero Element Scanner Treatment Process and What to Expect

The iTero Element scanner uses a small handpiece that Dr. Chern directs at your teeth and gums to collect imaging data. This data is then processed and visualized by the iTero Element machine, creating detailed 3D models of your teeth and gums. Unlike other systems, Dr. Chern can move the handpiece along with the teeth and gums as necessary without interrupting the imaging. This process is fast, safe, and doesn’t cause discomfort, mess, or gagging, like traditional impressions or x-rays. Following your iTero Element scan, Dr. Chern can use the images and models to inform other procedures, such as Invisalign, dental implants or bridges, crowns, restorations, and more. Afterward, you can return home without side effects.
