Align Technology recently announced the availability of the iTero Element Plus Series, which 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.   

On March 29, dental journalists from across EMEA were provided with an immersive experience which showcased the benefits of the new iTero Element Plus Series innovations, and offered a unique opportunity to follow a ‘real life’ patient-dentist journey to see the iTero system used in a practice scenario.

Following a welcome by John Zimmer, an internationally recognised public speaker, nine times European champion of Toastmasters and TEDx speaker, Mawlid Chaoui, senior director of iTero in EMEA, and Markus Sebastian, senior vice president and managing director in EMEA, explained how the iTero system is transforming digital dentistry. This was followed by a presentation about the ‘State of the Art scanning experience with iTero Element Plus Series’ delivered by Gilad Elbaz, director of global iTero product management.

A virtual tour of Tim Nolting’s dental practice took the journalists on a visit to see and hear his first-hand experience with the new iTero Element 5D Plus imaging system. Mr Nolting, an experienced specialist in digital dentistry, showed how the new iTero Element 5D Plus imaging system expands treatment care, his patients’ experience and accelerates practice growth in his own clinic, as well as how iTero intraoral scanners offer multiple benefits across his treatment workflow.

The event concluded when Christian Coachman, founder and CEO of the DSD-Digital Smile Design company, joined the event to show how dental professionals are making dentistry more meaningful to patients by harnessing the newly launched iTero Element Plus scanning system.

The new iTero Element Plus Series of scanners and imaging systems builds on the success of the award-winning iTero Element family and offers all of the existing orthodontic and restorative digital capabilities doctors have come to rely on — plus 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 iTero Element Plus Series portable with a medical grade, compact mobile scanner solution that delivers the same high-quality images as the cart configuration.

The iTero Element Plus Series of 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 percent 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.                                                                                                   

This series of new solutions feature advanced technology and capabilities are designed to improve the scanning experience, increase practice productivity, and drive higher patient treatment conversion.
