Why use an intraoral dental scanner?
Criteria to consider when finding an intraoral scanner that’s right for your practice
Accuracy of the intraoral scanner
A simple intraoral scanner maxim: the quality of your scan determines the accuracy of the lab work you will receive.
Advanced hardware and software must image everything that may be in a patient’s mouth, like shiny metal or edentulous areas. The ideal scanner can capture micro details and has the accuracy to support all types of restorative work, from crowns to bridges to dentures, night guards, clear aligners, and more. The precision of the scanning technology is the difference between a seamless scanning experience or a call from your lab technician requesting a redo.
Software Capability and Speed
Software powers the scanner, directly affecting how the scanner performs.
The optimal intraoral scanner should have no lag time between scanning and loading the images onto your screen. The top scanner we researched scanned in less than 90 seconds and automatically recognized specific areas where touch-ups and re-scans were needed. While essential for performance, software capability can differ widely from scanner to scanner.
Ease of Use
The name of the smart scanner game is user-friendly—think size, quality, and feel.
Does it fit comfortably in patients’ mouths? How does it feel in your hand? The best intraoral scanner allows you to scan seamlessly—without awkwardness. You want an intuitive software interface that aligns with your workflow (and does not require an IT degree). When researching the top scanners on the market, we quickly eliminated those with complex digital interfaces that were not simple enough for dentists to use with patients in their chairs.
Price of digital scanner
Digital scanners were once expensive for most dental practices, but high-quality scanners are now available at a lower price point.
But beware of additional costs associated with some scanners, like auxiliary equipment needed, software subscriptions, training, and customer support. Balance what works best for you and your practice with what makes the most fiduciary sense.
