How iTero Element 5d imaging system is transforming dental experiences in Berkley, CA

iTero Element 5d is more than a digital scanner. It is a first-of-its-kind imaging system that is revolutionizing dental diagnostics and treatment. That is why we are proud to add it to our suite of advanced technology here at Transcendentist in Berkley, CA. With this system we can eliminate traditional dental impressions, detect cavities in the earliest stages, plan treatment with precision, and much more. Best of all, the process is faster, safer, and more comfortable for our clients than traditional methods.

What is iTero Element 5d?

This amazing device is a multi-functional scanner that captures several types of images simultaneously. It eliminates the need for multiple scans and provides a wealth of detailed information. Additionally, iTero Element 5d goes beyond scanning with features such as Invisalign integration and time-lapse technology.

The process is fast and simple. Your dentist will place a small wand inside your mouth and move around a bit as needed. Unlike traditional dental impressions, it does not involve any goopy paste or uncomfortable tray. Unlike traditional x-rays, it does not require biting down on a film strip.

With just one scan, iTero Element 5d captures:

  • 3D images – Also known as digital impressions, these images can be used to diagnose dental problems, design restorations, and much more.
  • High-definition full color images – Eliminating the need for a separate exam with an intraoral camera, this lets your dentist fully examine every surface of every tooth. Additionally, we can share these images with our clients, so that you can see exactly what is going on in your mouth.
  • NIRI scan – Near-Infrared Imaging technology analyzes the tooth structure, even in hidden areas between the teeth. Often, it can detect small fractures or early decay that would not even show up on an x-ray. Although it does not replace x-rays, it is a great adjunct to them, providing additional information.
