Align Technology has announced new Itero updates and connectivity to improve customer experience and workflow for dental practices
The multiple updates associated with the Itero element family of intraoral scanners (Element, Element 2 and Element Flex) includes a new software upgrade with enhanced functionality, and connectivity with important digital dentistry leader: Exocad. These updates will help dentists offer a better and faster patient experience.
With the 1.7 Itero scanner software upgrade, which will be available through a gradual release, starting in late November, general dentists and orthodontists will have access to new features that improve scan quality and provides additional functionality for patient data protection. These improved features include:
- Improved image quality and resolution of restorative model
- Direct visualisation of high resolution scan in ‘scan mode’
- Improved scan process for prep segments
- Inactivity log out feature that activates after a pre-defined period of system inactivity for greater privacy of patient information.
In addition, a separate Itero software update this week also provided customers with an improvement in their experience at myitero.com, with clear visibility of file download status.
Align also announced that Itero intraoral scanner open chairside milling workflow with Exocad ChairsideCAD software offers a fully-validated workflow between Itero Element Intraoral scanner and Exocad ChairsideCAD to enable in-house milling of dental restoration on any compatible milling machine. With the flexibility of being able to choose chairside workflow that works for their practice, dentists can focus on offering a better patient experience and faster treatment through same-day dentistry.
