Cadent iTero™ is the world’s first digital impression solution for the fabrication of all dental restorations. iTero technology utilizes a ground breaking intra-oral scanner to capture the 3-D geometry of the tooth preparation area. iTero eliminates the guesswork required by conventional impression taking methods. With enhanced visualization and real-time analytical tools, clinicians are able to make adjustments prior to completing the scanning process all while the patient is still in the chair. iTero breaks new ground both clinically and economically, with technology that can be used for all restorative procedures and material options, a process that includes trusted dental laboratory partners in the production of the restorations, and a lower investment in system ownership that broadens access to more dental practices. Following a test market launch in May 2006 and full national rollout in April 2007, the iTero installed base is experiencing exponential growth.
