    I'm in process of buying my first scanner so I have made EXCEL table with some recent and popular 3D scanners on the market.
    It contains information that I think are important to watch when buying one.
    Feel free to update document with information that is missing, as You will see there are some question marks left. Just be sure that its 100% correct.
    I'm planning to add more scanners in future, but You can add them two so that we have database of all scanners on one place.

    Forget your microns or add to which iso 12836 or VDI 2634 they are related so i see just bullshit numbers not comparable. And micron idiots belive you , and better make tests and show the results !!!

    Have you checked out the Click? I’ve seen it live, very interesting!

    Anyone have success with impression scanning?

    I’ve seen good results from impression scans, though it might depend on the case.
    Could depend on the scanner you’re using too, some cases it might be hard to get some undercuts (if you aren’t able to just trim the impression) within the angle limitations of certain desktop scanners.
    Also I’ve used an intraoral scanner with impressions and recieved great results, though not every scanner will be totally reliable for this. The intraoral scanner I’m using right now has been excellent at it, even scanning dentures!

    Yeah I have tried a few and it does work on some cases like you say.
    I just feel, it's a stop gap until all practices adopt oral scanners.

    Not saying oral scanners are the answer because I have seen my fair share of inaccurate scans.

    Well I don’t know what oral scanner you’ve used, certainly there’s a couple out there that aren’t very accurate.
    I’ve been using the Medit i500 and it’s really been fantastic so far, even with impressions!

    I don't have a oral scanner.

    I just work with the scans that are sent.
    Trios, Plan Scan and Itero are what I have experience with.

    There are a bunch of challenges when it comes to scanning in the mouth. Tissue management/ cord packing.

    It's optical so it picks up on everything it sees. It can be tough to see the margin on subgingival cases. Or saliva shows up and it creates inaccurate scans.

    That scan data is sent and the patient is already gone.

    It would be beneficial like in that video for it to be more real-time. But I know that sometimes it's not even the Dr. scanning. The have left that for the assistant and don't even look at the scans being sent. Or the scans are sent at the end of the day and the patient is long gone.

    You call to say you need a new scan
    And you get the dreaded, " Just do the best you can"

    I got to play with the Medit I 500 and its really nice but I was scanning a model, not real teeth. It was cool but scanning models when you can manipulate to anyway you want is easy.

    So do you scan impressions and design and print the models?
    Is that your workfow for these cases?

    Or are you still pouring models after you scan the impression to confirm the design?

    I'm totally interested in eliminating the need to sling plaster.

    I’m a dentist so I don’t do the design but there's a tight relationship between us and the lab. I mostly scan the patient directly, and you’re right saliva and tissue can get in the way and also deep preps are an issue sometimes, but there’s been cases in which I scanned the impression and send it out.

    I’ve used a couple box scanners and honestly I really like the Click, you can just clip on your impression, triple tray, denture, etc. And it quickly gets you a really good scan! I would recommend taking a look at it.

    I might take you up on that offer.
    So you have a Medit I 500 and the Click scanner?

    Did you buy the click first and then just said well I should scan orally so you bought the medit?

    I use the Medit i500 all the time. I'm a dentist from Dominican Republic

    Free scanner? Lab credit?
    I can't understand how that's feasible.

    I'm already dealing with competitors giving cash back to accounts.

    Whats next?
