year, the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Oral and
Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS) showcases the latest scientific findings
and technological advances in the field of oral surgery. One such piece
of innovative technology is the digital intraoral scanner.
scanners may still be new to OMS, but they can be used in a number of
ways to improve efficiency, eliminate waste and provide more comfortable
experience for patients,” Gary Salman, U.S. director of oral and
maxillofacial surgery, Carestream Dental, said. “We have recently made
improvements to the scanner specific to oral surgeons, including a
dedicated implant planning workflow and all new HD 3D imaging.”
Dental introduced its intraoral scanner, the CS 3500, to oral surgeons
at the AAOMS Annual Meeting in 2014. Now, just in time for the 2015
Annual Meeting, here are the top five ways digital intraoral scanners
are changing the way oral surgeons practice.
for 2015, custom abutments, which allow for patient-specific anatomical
shape, can be fabricated by simply scanning a scan body using the CS
3500’s custom abutment workflow and then sending the data to the
appropriate lab. This streamlines the process and saves valuable chair
3500 digital impression data, stored on the office network, can easily
be shared between the oral surgeon and referring doctors, speeding up
the process of treatment planning, implant placement and the restorative
process. Not only that, digital files can be quickly uploaded to the
lab of the surgeon’s or referring doctor’s choice through a secure
CS 3500 allows the oral surgeon and general practitioner to easily work
together. For example, staff at the OMS practice take digital
impressions and submit the case to the lab. The crown can then be sent
directly to the general practitioner for the final restorative work.
This prevents the patient from having to make multiple separate visits
scanners eliminate traditional impression materials by digitizing the
area of interest scanned and making it available for instant chairside
viewing—ultimately saving time and reducing mess.
latest feature of the CS 3500, HD 3D imaging, offers enhanced color and
superior detail for more accurate digital impressions, making diagnosis
and surgical planning more precise from the start.
that updates to the scanner’s software make digital impressions even
more true-to-life, we’re sure to see the CS 3500 continue to change the
way oral surgeons practice and improve the overall patient experience,”
latest upgrade to the CS 3500’s CS Acquisition software—3D HD
imaging—improves image quality with more vivid color and details that
better reflects the in-vivo situation. Also known as 3D “texture
mapping” from a technical perspective, the enhanced quality and color of
the images provide more details to support margin line detection. Users
can easily switch to HD 3D images with just the click of a mouse to
show patients visually appealing images, which can make patient/doctor
communication, as well as case acceptance, easier.
CS 3500 allows practitioners to easily acquire true color, 2D and 3D
images and requires no external heater or trolley system. Additionally,
the CS 3500 uses open-format STL files for easy sharing and can be
plugged directly into a computer’s USB—making it a truly portable. The
scanner offers workflows for restorative dentistry, orthodontics and
Dental will be showcasing the CS 3500 at the AAOMS 2015 Annual Meeting
exhibition in Washington, D.C., Oct. 1-3, 2015, in booth #1418. Visit
the booth to preview HD 3D imaging, or learn more about the integration agreement between CS WinOMS practice management software and Intuit Demandforce.
