Before the popularity of smartphones, we may not think that we can complete the payment by swiping with the mobile phone. The introduction of digital technology is the "smartphone" in the dental industry.

Traditional dental impression

  • Long time: For the oral impression technique, people who have seen the teeth may have similar experiences: clinical preparation of impressions, plaster models, and waiting for the impression material to solidify and die during patient treatment. The perfusion model, etc., as cumbersome as the name, results in a long cycle.

  • Poor comfort: During the modulo process, the patient's mouth opening time is too long, and there will be a foreign body in the mouth, which may easily lead to vomiting.


Intraoral scan

  • Very comfortable: The intraoral scanner is a small-invasive optical scanning head that directly acquires the three-dimensional shape and color texture information of soft and hard tissues such as teeth, gums and mucous membranes in the patient's mouth. In short, the scanner that is a little bigger than the toothbrush scans in the mouth for a few minutes and is OK.

  • Function: Also, the intraoral scanner uses digital models to analyze other problems in your mouth, such as tooth movement, tooth tilt, tooth rotation, retraction, and wear.

  • Short time: With the intraoral scanner we don't have to wait for the results of “several centuries” to generate a 3D digital model in 2-3 minutes with an accuracy of up to 20 microns (1000 microns = 1 mm) and the scan results can be viewed at any time.
