The better the scan, the better the fit. 3M™ True Definition Scanner impressions have been used to create thousands of restorations and orthodontic appliances at a clinically proven fit rate of 99.7% for dental restorations. 2 The scans are so reliably accurate that many cases don’t even require a model. That translates to precisely fitting dental restorations and appliances, with fewer retakes and remakes. Fewer adjustments. And a better fit right from the start.
The 3M™ True Definition Scanner wand is designed for fast and easy scanning. Lightweight and ergonomically balanced, the wand allows one-handed scanning from multiple positions. It handles like a traditional dental handpiece, and its narrow, angled tip provides easy access to the posterior. And with the smallest profile of any intraoral scanner wand on the market, it makes the experience more comfortable for your patient.
Our open-architecture files can be used in a number of CAD/CAM workflows including model printing, design and milling, and are easily converted and imported into leading software systems for digital design and production of restorations and orthodontic appliances.
