Tips to ensure a successful scan

Tissue Management

  • Correctly retracting tissue enables good scanning of the margin
  •  Intra-Oral scanners only scan what is visible to the eye
  • Two-cord retraction is best

Moisture Control

  • Dry the teeth using compressed air
  • Pay special attention to the interproximal areas. Especially deep interproximal preps
  • Ensure the scanner wand is clean and dry

Scanned Information

  • Scan a minimum of 4 opposing teeth
  • On the prepped arch scan the full quadrant. Or at least two adjacent teeth to the mesial and distal of the prepped site.
  • When scanning anterior teeth scan all anterior teeth so the new restoration can be adapted to existing dentition.
  • If possible, provide a pre-op on anterior scans.
  • Do not submit a scan with voids or missing data
