Packaged with restorative software, the Align Technology iTero Element Foundation intraoral scanner is designed for dentists who are beginning to learn how to use digital technologies as part of their treatment. 

“At Align, we understand that a dentist’s digital journey may be different moving from analog to digital treatment planning,” said Yuval Shaked, Align Technology senior vice president and managing director, iTero scanners and services.

“The new iTero Element Foundation scanner with restorative workflow and iRecord software applications gives doctors a new pathway to capture the advantages and opportunities that digitalization offers their practices. Doctors also have the option to upgrade if they decide to expand their treatment offerings with Invisalign clear aligners,” Shaked said.

The iTero Element Foundation offers digital workflow capabilities to address restorative and patient monitoring intraoral scanning needs. Its streamlined workflows to dental laboratories, option for on-demand chairside milling, and exclusive TimeLapse technology for patient communication and monitoring provides capabilities beyond basic STL export scanners, the company says.

The restorative software includes capabilities such as iRecord digital scan record and TimeLapse technology to compare historical scans. Align Technology also offers ongoing technical support, virtual classroom training, webinars, and e-learning modules. Software upgrade pathways also are available for Invisalign clear aligners.
