Scanning Systems, Laser/Light, Dental Impression

Definition : Scanning systems designed to capture three-dimensional (3-D) in-vivo images of the topographical features of teeth using a combination of a focused point (i.e., confocal) laser and light scanning systems. These systems typically consist of a handheld wand that is displaced along the dental arches to scan and capture images from the teeth, a central unit that process the data and 3-D images, and a monitor that displays the video images in real time. The systems simultaneously record the digital data corresponding to the images as a digital dental impression using dedicated software. Once the digital impression is assessed, it is sent electronically to a dental laboratory for conventional prosthesis manufacturing or to a computer-aided manufacturing milling machine for automated manufacturing of the model of an appropriate prosthesis. The digital information may be used also to manufacture orthodontic devices.
