Intraoral scanner

With an intraoral scanner, it is possible to capture the surfaces of the teeth and gums in the patient's mouth very quickly and precisely in 3D format. The individual images taken are combined by algorithms in the software to generate a complete jaw image.

The result is a digital 3D model of the patient's jaws and teeth. These 3D models can be used in many ways and offer many possibilities in diagnostics, the course of changes in the tooth and jaw area and the design of dentures.

Your advantages of an Intraoral Scanner:

Simulation technology
Visualization of the final result of your orthodontic tooth correction with Invisalign® BEFORE the start of the treatment.

3-D scans of preparations
In restorative dentistry, we can avoid the annoying dental impression when making your inlay, veneer or crown.

Niri technology (near-infrared imaging)
Visualization of caries in the interdental space without harmful X-rays.

Time laps function
Time-independent comparison of two scans of your teeth to make changes visible over time.

3D scans of preparations = Digital Impressions

In our practice we use the intraoral scanner iTero element 5D® to digitally record preparations gently, without disturbing feelings of tightness and choking. We send the scans directly to our in-house dental laboratory.

Your advantages:

No impression material in your mouth
Time saving, in the case of small restorations. Inlays or partial Crowns can be made within a few hours
High precision
Visualization of incipient caries in the interdental space using Niri technology WITHOUT harmful X-rays

Nowadays, in addition to the static 3D model that is recorded and created with the intraoral scanner, a time-dependent simulation of jaw movements can also be recorded and used for diagnostic and restorative purposes (see Modjaw). The basis for the use of Modjaw remains the optical recording of the teeth and jaw areas using the intraoral scanner.
