The Itero 5D is an impressive digital scanner that has many functions. It allows the dentist to have a 3D image of a patient’s teeth and gums. It has a camera feature that takes pictures of areas that are scanned. The Itero has an orthodontic simulation feature that allows patients to see ideal teeth position in seconds, i.e. patients can see how their smiles can possibly look after Invisalign treatment.
The Itero has a time lapse option where the dentist can compare images from subsequent years to show patients how their teeth and gums are changing over time.
