Dentistry is being made simple with new technologies like the Carestream CS 3500 intraoral scanner. It may sound complicated, but it is a simple device that is used by dentist all the time to help with accurate dental restorations, creating fewer problems and causing less pain for the patient. After all, who likes to have dental impressions made? It’s a messy and uncomfortable process, and this new technology avoids it completely. Even better than that, it’s a carefully designed piece of equipment that is small and nimble, so it doesn’t frighten people who are a little nervous about going to the dentist.
It is so nimble and lightweight, in fact, that the CS 3500 can scan a patient at a depth of 16 mm at almost any angle, taking away the hard work from the dentist and ensuring absolutely accurate scans. Your dentist can focus on you. This technology is also compatible with all of the old technologies, and can scan any previous moulds that have been made of your teeth so that it can compare how previous dental work has been done.
The scanner is also useful to dentists because it is plugged directly into a computer, so all of the data that it collects goes straight to a digital record. There is no paperwork or admin for the dentist to complete. There is a projection screen so that the dentist can focus completely on the patient, and when it is in Feedback mode, it projects two lights to guide the dentist where to go. The projection is even in color! Once the scan using the CS 3500 is complete, the software will create an image of the patient’s mouth in detail, something that the dentist could never have done by eye – and completely without any hassle or pain.
