No, the iTero scanner does not use radiation. We use only visible light to create these accurate scans, so there is no exposure to ionizing rays (X-rays).
We use 3D imaging technology extensively in orthodontics. We use 3D surface imaging systems and digital 3D oral scans with computer-aided design and manufacturing tech helping with the 3D printing of devices designed from those scans.
