CS 3700 Ranked First in Trueness in Latest In-Vitro Study

 ATLANTA —Scientific literature has shown intraoral scanners to be highly successful in creating digital impressions for designing short-span restorations and partial prosthesis; however, scanning fully edentulous arches is less studied. Now, a new comprehensive in-vitro study testing the trueness of 12 intraoral scanners when scanning full-arch implant impressions has found the CS 3700 intraoral scanner to offer the truest results when capturing scan bodies in an edentulous arch, giving doctors more confidence that they ’re getting the best results when creating digital impressions with the CS 3700.    The study compared the trueness —or how closely the digital scans matched the actual object—of 12 intraoral scanners when scanning a stone model of an edentulous arch with scan bodies. Two methods were used to assess trueness. Method 1 directly evaluated the quality/accuracy of the scan of each intraoral scanner. Method 2 evaluated the resulting accuracy of each intraoral scanner in early stages of prosthetic CAD modeling. Carestream Dental ’s newest scanner, the CS 3700, was shown to have the best trueness, with a mean error 30.4 mm, when tested by Method 1. The study found the performance differences between the scanners tested to be statistically significant, with CS 3700 outperforming all the other 11 scanners. “Being able to confidently scan a fully edentulous arch is every sca...
