3D scan for dentures – intraoral scanner

For the fabrication of dentures, but also of removable dental splints (aligners) for tooth correction, an impression of the dentition with an impression material and impression trays was required first. In the case of dentures, for example, this impression is one of the first steps in treatment and serves as the basis for the dental laboratory to manufacture the denture.

More comfortable and precise than a conventional impression

We record your dental situation contact-free and digitally using an intraoral scanner. This takes a high-precision image of the corresponding area in the mouth or the entire set of teeth and immediately displays the result on the monitor as a virtual three-dimensional model.


Advantages of the intraoral scanner

  • Patient comfort: The impression with the impression compound (the compound reminiscent of plasticine or rubber that provides the impression of the teeth) and the metal impression trays, which is unpleasant for some patients, is eliminated. A possible gag reflex is also excluded. Many patients find this very pleasant.
  • Higher quality: The resulting image of teeth and gums is extremely precise and enables excellent accuracy of fit for dentures, for example. The quality can be checked directly on the screen and corrected if necessary. This avoids errors and inaccuracies that are possible with the normal impression. This precision is an important prerequisite for the quality of your new crown or bridge, for example.
  • Time saving: The images are available immediately, the otherwise usual multi-step process (model production, casting of plaster casts, etc.) is no longer necessary.
  • Digital work processes: The data from the intraoral scanner can be directly processed digitally and quickly (“digital workflow”). This simplifies work processes and saves time, which we can use for you as a patient.
  • Sustainability: No more impression material is required.
