29 Sep CS 3500 SCANNER — EASIER AND MORE ACCURATE THAN EVER BEFORE.
Welcome to the new reality of restorative dentistry: the CS 3500 intraoral scanner. The CS3500 combines patient comfort with clinical flexibility, enabling clinicians to quickly capture digital impressions. The CS 3500 is easy to use and fits seamlessly into any practice’s restorative workflow.
The CS 3500 intraoral scanner acquires true color, 2D and 3D images. Requiring no external heater, powder or trolley system, the CS 3500 features high-angulation scanning of up to 45 degrees and to a depth from -2 to +13mm. It also features autoclavable tips available in two sizes — a smaller tip for children or adults with small mouths and a larger tip for adults. The scanner allows practitioners to capture high-resolution images digitally rather than using the putty associated with traditional impressions, eliminating the need for using impression material, pouring molds or waiting for stone models to set.
System integration with the CS 3500 is unique to scanning technology and mirrors other open architecture computer platforms. There is no need for a trolley and the scanner integrates directly with the imaging platform, which in turn integrates with most practice management systems. Consequently, the practice does not need a second database for intraoral scans, as the data stores automatically within the patient’s record in the same manner that other types of images are stored. Single source integration reduces admin time and simplifies practice record keeping.
The CS 3500 features True Color, which is able to distinguish between tissue and the dentin/enamel if the prep is subgingival for margin definition. This tool visualizes the anatomy more accurately, which allows the doctor to see a better representation than with monochrome systems.
In summary, the CS 3500 provides easy to learn, easy to use, highly accurate, open architecture system, with a low cost port of entry. Add up all of these pluses and you have a scanner that is a ‘game changer’, and the way forward for intraoral scanning technology.
