Benefits of Intraoral Digital Impression Scanners

Traditionally, to make an intraoral impression on a patient, a dentist requires a number of materials such as tray adhesive, impression tray, alginate, impression material disinfection, elastomeric impression materials, and occlusal registration material. There are risks regarding bubble formation in the stone cast. Also, increased costs and prolonged duration associated with traditional method of producing intraoral impression have made dentists to look for computer aided options.

Intraoral digital impression scanners produce an augmented as opposed to a virtual reality image. In an augmented image, a dentist receives an instant 3- dimensional replica of the dental stone to be set. An accurate digital record helps dentists to make correct impressions at one go instead of retaking impressions multiple times in a month. This also spares patients from sitting through painful process of elastomeric impression.

Digital devices for producing dental impression have been categorized into CAD/ CAM devices and dedicated intraoral digital scanners. CAD/ CAM devices include synchronized units for designing and milling the restorations from ceramic blocks or composite materials as well as intraoral digital scanner for capturing impressions of the prepared teeth. Dedicated intraoral digital scanners are particularly used to capture data that can be sent to laboratories to create milled or stereolithic models.

Growing demand for digital impression standalone scanners has led manufacturers to introduce several developments in the standalone scanning systems. Following are some of the leading standalone scanning systems available in the global digital impression standalone scanners market:

Lava Chairside Oral Scanner (C.O.S): Developed by 3M ESPE, the standalone digital scanning system is not linked to an in-office restoration-milling unit.
