ATLANTA— Carestream Dental has introduced its new CS 3800 intraoral scanner. Designed in collaboration with Studio F. A. Porsche, the CS 3800's slim, cordless design makes it easier to hold and gives users a more comfortable scanning experience.
To make it easier to capture interproximal areas and subgingival margins and improve soft tissue scanning, the CS 3800’s field of view (FOV) has been enlarged to 16 mm x 14 mm. This new increased FOV makes scanning edentulous patients even smoother. With a 21 mm depth of field, the CS 3800 can better capture emergence profiles, deep margins and post spaces to improve image quality.
The CS 3800 uses dedicated point-to-point WiFi access that instantly receives data transferred from the handpiece to the computer. It’s as easy as plugging in a WiFi dongle. Once connected, it’s immediately ready to receive a signal from the handpiece: the pairing maintains a robust and stable transmission band for a continuous and efficient scanning procedure.
The scanner’s software, CS ScanFlow 1.0.4, includes indications for restorations, implant-borne restorations, orthodontics, sleep devices and, dentures, giving doctors the ability to provide treatment for more patients no matter their clinical needs.
