  • Immediate impression results- Traditional impressions are not only messy but time consuming. With an intra oral scanner, results for patients are immediate. A dental professional will be able to assess the impression, following the scan, vs. mailing the impression and waiting for results. If an area was missed or overlooked, solutions are as simple as rescanning the portion.
  • Low maintenance- Cleaning and maintaining an intra oral camera requires less effort then disinfesting impression trays. This creates a smooth transition after a patient leaves an operatory.
  • Accuracy- Intra oral scanning captures accurate shades and form. This allows for better patient prognosis and accurate treatment plan.
  • Quicker treatment acceptance- Finalizing a treatment plan with a patient should be the end goal for a practice. The quicker an effective treatment plan is presented to a patient, the higher chance that they are able to move forward with accepting it. The accuracy and speed that most intra oral scanners offer, allows for an increase in treatment acceptance.
  • Little to no waste- Intra oral scanning involves less material cost and waste overall. No disposing or storing material, will maintain a clutter free process and practice.
