Intraoral Scanners

Intraoral scanners offer many clinical advantages over dental impressions, including: 1) No need for uncomfortable conventional dental impression procedures. 2) No need for pouring the impressions. Detail can be refined while scanning patients, this is an adaptive process and clinicians do not have to wait until after an impression is poured and set to detect errors. 3) No gingival displacement occurs during scanning as opposed to impression. Currently, scan times are around 5 minutes which is faster than conventional impression, pouring and setting times. 4) Digital scans can be directly sent to the laboratory, the patient or other professionals. No need for physical storage, and digital impressions are easy to retrieve.
