The dentist uses a handheld device to scan the inside of the patient’s mouth. The scanner captures and processes more than one million 3D points per second, creating a high-resolution and highly detailed 3D model.
Efficiency and Comfort
Traditional dental impressions can be time-consuming and uncomfortable. Primescan makes the process faster, more comfortable, and more efficient, often eliminating the need for goopy impression materials.
Primescan produces a more accurate and detailed image, reducing the likelihood of errors and subsequent adjustments. This means fewer appointments and less time spent in the dental chair.
On-site Restoration Fabrication
Using the digital impressions captured by Primescan, a CEREC milling machine can create restorations like crowns, bridges, or veneers right in the dental office, often within a single visit.
