A Clear View — With No Radiation!

Vision is one of the dentist’s most important tools. Being able to see inside your mouth, assess how to help make your smile the most perfect it can be, and then track your progress over time is essential to providing you the best long term care. We at Golden Dental Wellness Center are proud to announce the arrival of the iTero Element 5D, the most advanced dental imaging system in the world!

The Element works with a simple wand and camera system. One of our fabulous dentists simply guides the wand over your top and bottom teeth, and the Element automatically produces a 3D model of your mouth! However, the Element doesn’t just take photos, it also uses a new technology called NIRI (Near-Infrared Imaging) to give both you and our dentist a view under the surface of your tooth. This allows us to see your enamel density and internal tooth structure, which helps us to identify and correct problems before they get serious. Even if you have problems in the base of your tooth, the Element can give us key insights into correcting pulp damage with a ceramic implant (no root canals at the GDWC). The wand also functions as a live camera, so we can show you exactly what we are seeing in your mouth. So say goodbye to cavities and gingivitis!

Moreover, the Element also replaces bite impressions (no more icky goop in your mouth) and gives us key insights into administering Invisalign. Since we can take a virtual impression of your mouth, we can also use AI to show you what your mouth will look like during and after Invisalign. Every time you come into the office, we can give you a quick updated scan and then track your progress with a timelapse and make any necessary adjustments needed. In addition, you get to watch as your teeth straighten and your smile transforms. This timelapse technology also helps us to monitor your recovery after surgery and prevent any irregularities. Another draw of this new system is the lack of radiation needed to make a scan. In traditional radiology, dentists need to release a small dose of ionizing radiation in order to scan your mouth, but the NIRI technology in the Element is radiation free.

Essentially, the Element allows both you and our dentists to gain greater vision and insight into your care over time. Since the NIRI technology is radiation free, we can scan you everytime you come in, which allows us to always have an up-to-date scan of your teeth. If you have any other questions about the iTero Element 5D or simply would like to schedule an appointment, call us at the Golden Dental Wellness Center at (516) 627-8400. See you soon!
