Design Approach: Putting your Patient First
The intraoral scanner was designed to address the needs of dental professionals looking for an intuitive technology for capturing digital impressions. With the overall objective to help dentists focus on the patient rather than the technology, the Dental Wings intraoral scanner offers:
- A remarkably small handpiece very similar in size, shape, and weight to existing dental handpieces. Its familiar shape allows to assume a natural position relative to the patient.
- Visual and auditive feedback — a luminescent ring and audible signals indicate when data is being successfully captured, allowing the user to focus in the mouth rather than on the screen.
- Easy maintenance of the lightweight all-metal handpiece that has no moving parts, no complex illumination or cooling system.
- Motion control technology for a no-touch operation of the system while the user has gloves on.
Five miniaturized 3D scanners in the handpiece tip directly view the teeth and soft tissue from multiple orientations simultaneously, capturing even the most difficult to see areas of preparations with minimal effort by the user.
The intraoral scanner is a dedicated “scan only” chairside system with multiple options for the design and fabrication steps. Captured data is seamlessly transmitted to in-office or remote systems via DWOS Connect for prosthesis design and production. Users of Dental Wings’ simple to use yet powerful DWOS CAD suite of design applications, as well as other open dental CAD software, are able to import the scan data directly.
