Align Technology announces new iTero Lumina™ intraoral scanner

FIG. 1 Align Technology: iTero Lumina™.

Powered by the new iTero Multi-Direct Capture™ technology, the iTero Lumina™ scanner quickly [5], easily [1], and accurately [3] captures more data while delivering exceptional scan quality and photorealistic visuals that remove the need for intraoral photos [3]. 

Align technology recently announced the launch of the iTero Lumina™ intraoral scanner – with a 3X wider field of capture in a 50% smaller and 45% lighter wand, delivering faster scanning speed, higher accuracy, superior visualization, and a more comfortable [6] scanning experience. 

“iTero Lumina™ captures more data while delivering exceptional scan quality and photorealistic visuals.” 

Designed with iTero Multi-Direct Capture™ technology that replaces the confocal imaging technology in earlier models, the iTero Lumina scanner: 

  • Has a wider field of capture and multi-angled scanning that enables simultaneous capture from multiple angles, making it possible to capture more dentition in a single uninterrupted movement, and deliver smoother, faster, and more accurate scans [3];
  • Has a larger capture distance of up to 25mm**, making it easier [1] to scan complex oral regions such as narrow or deep palates, edentulous spaces, and partially erupted teeth with minimal maneuvering;
  • Quickly [5], easily [1], and accurately [3] captures more data and greater detail while delivering exceptional scan quality and photorealistic 3D models that remove the need for the bulky digital cameras and cheek retractors required for traditional intraoral photos;
  • Provides an effortless scanning experience that sets a new level of ergonomics and comfort, and helps remove adoption and utilization barriers [7]; 
  • Delivers a better patient experience with a significantly smaller and lighter wand [2], which is especially beneficial for kids and teen patients.

NOTES

1) Compared to the field of view of the iTero Element™ 5D imaging system, when the iTero Lumina™ intraoral scanner’s scanning distance is 12 mm.* 

2) Compared to iTero Element™ 5D imaging system wand, excluding the wand cable.* 

3) The iTero Lumina™ intraoral scanner has scientifically proven greater accuracy* for your clinical orthodontic needs. 

4) For Invisalign record-taking cases only. Based on a survey in September 2023 of n=22 users who participated in a global limited market release, working with iTero Lumina™ intraoral scanner for an average period of 6 months, representing both Invisalign trained general practitioners and orthodontists in NA, EU and APAC, who were presented with a 4 point level of agreement scale from strongly agree to strongly disagree with the following statement: “iTero Lumina™ intraoral scanner 3D model is comparable to that of an intraoral photo.” and “iTero Lumina™ intraoral scanner photorealistic scans enable orthodontic clinical assessment the same way intraoral photos do.” and “iTero Lumina™ intraoral scanner 3D model’s superior 3D model eliminates the need to take intraoral photos.” and “iTero Lumina™ intraoral scanner 3D model’s superior 3D model boosts patient engagement.”* 

5) Compared to iTero Element™ 5D wand with tolerance AVE=±0.1 operating at a working distance from 0-20 mm.* 

6) For doctors and their staff: Over other iTero™ scanners in their respective clinics. Based on a survey in September 2023 of n=22 users who participated in a global limited market release, working with iTero Lumina™ intraoral scanner for an average period of 6 months, representing both Invisalign® trained general practitioners, orthodontists, and their staff in NA, EMEA and APAC, who were presented with a 4 point level of agreement scale from strongly agree to strongly disagree with the following statement: “I prefer the iTero Lumina™ intraoral scanner over other iTero scanners in my clinic due to the comfortable scanning experience it provides. For patients: Compared to iTero Element™ 5D imaging system wand. 

7) Based on a survey in September 2023 of n=22 users who participated in a global limited market release, working with iTero Lumina™ intraoral scanner for an average period of 6 months, representing both Invisalign trained general practitioners and orthodontists, and their staff in NA, EU and APAC, who were presented with a 4 point level of agreement scale from strongly agree to strongly disagree with the following statement: “The iTero Lumina™ intraoral scanner scanning experience helps remove adoption and utilization barriers.”
