Intraoral 3D camera-scanner instead of the traditional method

Every technological breakthrough is a must for a modern orthodontic clinic, which uses new orthodontic approaches to provide the most up-to-date and safe services to those who need them. Thus, the use of the intraoral 3D camera-scanner allows us to offer a very high level of orthodontic care, rendering the traditional way of taking impressions obsolete.

We must clarify that the process of taking impressions is essential for the precise design and proper application of devices such as transparent Invisalign aligners. However, with the use of an intraoral 3D camera-scannerthe mouth is measured digitally (instead of using the conventional method of taking impressions with a mold) with a high-precision imaging technology that captures the smallest detail, easier and more comfortably for the “patient”.

How the intraoral 3D camera-scanner works

Thanks to state-of-the-art visual technology, the visual data are processed by special software which takes high-precision impressions (capturing the structure of the denture and gums digitally), with minimal chances of error, in order to create a 3D model.

This high-tech process replaces the previous, time-consuming, conventional method of making mold impressions using materials that gradually harden, such as special gels. That method was less comfortable for the “patient” and often the impressions taken were not entirely accurate.

The new technology with the camera-scanner is faster than the conventional method, extremely more accurate, does not require repetition of shots and guarantees perfect application and a high-level treatment. The digital scan can be sent directly to the laboratory, thus saving time and allowing for optimal cooperation between orthodontist and orthodontic appliance manufacturer.

Thanks to the use of the ergonomic device-scanner, the orthodontist uses a laser to scan every detail of the upper and lower dentition in only 5 minutes and within this time creates a perfect three-dimensional digital imprint of the denture and gums. This method can be used in the context of any orthodontic treatment, including the Invisalign® treatment.
