The iTero's powder-free system scans quadrants and full arches, which allows the clinician to easily take digital impressions of single-unit cases as well as more comprehensive restorative and cosmetic full-arch treatment plans—including fixture level implant impressions. Onscreen visualization of the scan in real time ensures that preparations are perfectly completed and that there is adequate occlusal clearance to achieve the best cosmetic and restorative outcome. The new iTero 4.0 software includes a customized user interface, real time model scanning protocol, STL export for doctors, eraser tool, and margin marking tool. With the real time model scanning protocol doctors can see the impression build as they scan and complete the high resolution impression in just minutes. The STL export function allows the doctors to send the digital impression file to third party digital service providers for integration with cone beam computed tomography scans, creation of implant surgical guides, or other digital treatment services.
