3M™ Mobile True Definition Digital Impression Scanner

The 3M™ Mobile True Definition Scanner is the first intraoral scanner that operates solely on a tablet to create digital impressions for restorative dentistry. Outputting in open-architecture STL files, this scanner is compatible with all standard CAD/CAM systems. The 3M™ scanner also has the smallest wand on the market, providing the least invasive scanning option. The simple software and user-friendly display allow operators to view and evaluate scan quality chairside. Precise to less than 5 microns, the 3M™ True Definition scanner has a demonstrated fit rate of 99.7 percent, allowing most crowns to seat with zero chairside adjustment.

What are the indications for the 3M™ Mobile Scanner?

The 3M Mobile Scanner is an optical impression system used to record the topographical characteristics of the dentition and/or full arch and preparation areas (including features such as implant scan locators, fixtures, braces, brackets, etc.). In addition, it can record the topographical characteristics of the oral anatomy (such as soft tissue, gingivae, and palate).

The 3D model generated from the scan may be further used for the design and manufacturing of dental restorations including implant supported prostheses and partial frameworks and can be used to design and manufacture physical models of the teeth. It may also be used to create orthodontic appliances, retainers, and accessories.
