Q: What type of technology is being used?
A: A combination of confocal microscopy and interferometry. This allows for a highly accurate tomographic scan.

Q: What makes the technology special?
A: We are using a special proprietary sensor technology called “Smart Pixel”. This sensor supports a dedicated microprocessor for each pixel which enables a very fast scan rate.

Q: Can we see the impression being built in real-time?
A: Yes, the system boasts Automatic Real-Time Stitching.  You will see the impression build up as you scan.

Q: What kind of light is used in the scanner?
A: The light is near infrared and will not harm the patient or user.

Q: Does the system require powder?
A: No. The scans of natural dentition and tissue can be taken without an opaquing powder. If you desire a faster scan time, powder can be applied. If you are scanning something highly reflective (implant abutment) powder is required.

Q: What type of data is produced by these scans?
A: To support open-architecture development, our scanner will be producing impressions in a STL surface file.  This file is compatible with most open Cad platforms such as 3Shape. 

Q: How is the unit disinfected?
A: Wipe down or spray disinfectant.  The housing is stainless steel.
