Shape the future of your practice with the iTero Element® with TimeLapse. It is more than just an intraoral scanner; it’s the only scanner with the revolutionary technology to make chairside consults more productive for both you and your patients. Using a stunning visual that compares historical scans to a current scan, patients see for themselves the changes in their tooth wear, tooth movement, and changes in gingiva over time – encouraging them to accept treatment right at chairside.
Vivera retainers are produced by the makers of invisalign® clear aligners, the world’s largest user of state-of-the-art 3D printing technology making highly accurate, well-fitting retainers that are easily inserted and fit more comfortably. A comfortable clear retainer means patients are more likely to wear it and prevent relapses.
