At South Surrey Smiles, we are consistently introducing new sources of advanced technology into our practice. With the iTero Element® 5D scanner, we can offer an enhanced Invisalign scan process to give our patients the great experience they deserve.

Introducing iTero Element

iTero Element® 5D scanner plus series

In the past, patients had to bite into an unpleasant tray of putty to provide dental impressions. With iTero Element Scanner, we can skip the mess and take digital impressions of your teeth instead. Not only does this create a more comfortable experience for our patients, but the results are crisp, accurate, and quick. Getting a custom set of clear aligners by Invisalign has never been easier.

How It Works

  • The Wand. Your orthodontist will use the wand on the iTero Element Scanner to capture clear images of your teeth and gums.
  • The Scan. The iTero Element Scanner will collect impressions in real time, displaying them on the screen so you can follow along.
  • The 3D Model. When the scan is complete, the iTero Element Scanner will create a 3D model of your mouth, which will be used to map out your Invisalign treatment, retainers, or appliances.
  • The Simulator. Get a sneak peek of your end results with iTero Element. This scanner creates an afterimage of your teeth, giving you a clear image of what you have to look forward to.
