Carestream Dental is launch-ing its new intraoral scanner technology and updates to its CS Solutions CAD/CAM software portfolio at the upcoming ADX20 Sydney Exhibition from the 13-15th March 2020.
The newest intraoral scanner from Carestream Dental, the CS 3700, captures high-quality digital impressions at high speed for a premium scanning experience. In fact, the scanner is 20% faster than previous Carestream Dental intraoral scanner models, so patients spend less time in the chair and clinicians can go from scanning to implant planning faster. Clinicians expect optimal scanning without sacrificing sleek style and ultimate comfort and the CS 3700 delivers this and more, having been designed in collaboration with Studio F. A. Porsche - the renowned design studio that originated the brand Porsche Design.
To ensure remarkably beautiful aesthetic restorations, the CS 3700 features smart-shade matching that automatically detects the enamel colour of the scan area to identify the ideal match. This patented technology, known as bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF), captures actual shade values from several views, considering all angles of the scanner - unlike other systems that collect RGB values from a single view. In a single click, smart-shade matching automatically compiles a shade report with multilayer shade information for the selected area of interest, allowing users to easily share the outcome with the dental lab or referral for optimal restorative outcomes.
The scanner is the ideal fit for any state-of-the-art practice, offering exceptional versatility to address restorative, orthodontic, implant-borne prosthetic and sleep device treatments. In fact, the scanner's new software, CS ScanFlow, lets users select any workflow from a single screen for exceptional convenience and control. Users will also notice increased scanning speeds with the CS 3700 - a 20% increase over previous Carestream Dental intraoral scanner models. Turbo speed scans have been tested and proven to scan in vitro single arches in 30 seconds (Based on in vitro testing and when the recommended PC config is used).
Not only is Carestream Dental launching its new premium intraoral scanner, it is also introducing completely redesigned intelligent software to power implant-borne restorative scanning. CS ScanFlow features flexible, innovative ways to capture scans - users access workflows from a single base scan rather than pre-selecting a workflow - and is touchscreen enabled to give users streamlined navigation literally at their fingertips. Tools specific to the implant-borne restorative workflow make working with scanbodies and supported abutments easier and more precise. A split viewing screen for side-by-side comparisons of digital impressions with and without the scan bodies and/or abutments in place also provides flexible reviewing options depending on the clinical need.
