The 3M™ True Definition Scanner is:
- Accurate: Resulting in better fitting appliances
- Fast: Small, lightweight wand for fast and easy scanning
- Comfortable: Especially for anyone with a low tolerance for traditional impressions
How does it work?
We simply move the scanner around your mouth, capturing video of all sides of the teeth and gums.
You can watch the 3D model of your teeth appear on the monitor in real time. When the scan is complete, we can review, zoom in or out, and rotate the image to get a true picture of your oral anatomy, so you can ask questions and better understand what’s being done.
The impression is often sent to a laboratory to produce the appliance or aligner.
Once it is complete, the doctor will insert the appliance or first set of aligners and review your custom treatment plan with you.
