Align Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq: ALGN) today announced the launch of its innovative iTero Element intraoral scanner in the Middle East.
The iTero Element scanner is synonymous with high-precision intraoral scanning, and its launch in the region offers dentists and orthodontists alike a state-of-the-art digital solution, designed to enable scanning in as little as 60 seconds* with high accuracy, intuitive operation and exceptional visualisation capabilities. The scanner will also allow dental professionals to access new features for intraoral assessment that facilitate proactive dialogue with patients regarding treatment options, including Invisalign clear aligners. Designed using advanced restorative workflows, the iTero Element scanner also offers digital options for traditional crown and bridge and implant treatments. The iTero Element scanner is now available to doctors in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.
“I’m delighted to announce the launch of the iTero Element scanner in the Middle East – one of the most digitally-advanced markets in EMEA,” – commented Simon Beard, Align Technology senior vice president and managing director, EMEA. “The iTero scanner is a real game-changer for doctors, combining the fast scanning speed and great precision with a simple, intuitive operating system. It will help doctors deliver excellent treatment outcomes and will significantly enhance patient experience. With this launch, we are taking further steps towards driving the growth of digital dentistry in the region and providing our doctors with best-in-class digital services.”
The iTero Element scanner, engineered to capture 6 000 frames per second, offers colour scanning to clearly distinguish between gingival and dental tissue for more precise 3D clinical evaluation. A proprietary feature of the iTero Element scanner is the Invisalign Outcome Simulator, an exclusive chair-side patient consultation tool that allows doctors to help patients visualize how their teeth may look at the end of Invisalign treatment.
To date, iTero scans have been used in more than 2.7 million restorative crown, bridge, and custom implant cases and more than 7.7 million iTero orthodontic scans, including more than 3.7 million Invisalign treatment related scans.**
