Optimized scanning technology
The optimal scanning technology of the iSeries addresses the varied constraints encountered when scanning impressions, including cases with deep narrow pockets that are frequently found with lower anteriors. The iSeries system features a powerful onboard computer, two sophisticated on board-measuring cameras placed at complementary angles, five axes of movement, and a live video camera for previews.
In-clinic impression scanning: The easiest way to go digital
Thanks to its ease of use, this impression scanner allows anyone on the dental team to quickly digitize traditional impressions. Once the scan is completed, data is automatically transmitted to DWOS Connect -enabled laboratory of choice. Within seconds the lab receives all the clinical information needed to fabricate the prescribed restorations – the process could not be simple. It’s as easy as sending an email.
In-clinic digital design is also possible with the installation of DWOS CAD applications. Thanks to the DWOS open file STL output, a large variety of in-clinic manufacturing options are accessible.
“My local lab began scanning my impressions with the iSeries last year. We’ve been doing mostly full-contour crowns with the technology and I’ve been thrilled with the precise fit and adaptation. My crown seating times are significantly shorter, and remakes have been virtually eliminated. Additionally, my lab gets the crowns back within five days, which limits the time our patients are in temporaries. I could not imagine going back to the old method.”

Benefits of chairside impression scanning
Proactive approach: dentists play an active role in controlling the quality of the data being sent to the lab, i.e. catching and correcting preparation or impression uncertainties while the patient is still in the office.
Optimal clinical information capture: while sub-gingival information is very difficult to obtain with intraoral scanners, it is easily obtained by digitizing impressions.
Improved accuracy: enables immediate chairside precision scanning of fresh impressions, therefore avoiding potential distortions of impressions during shipping and gypsum model manufacturing.
Increased material options: enables clinicians to access the most advanced and trusted CAD/CAM restorative materials available, i.e. 3M ESPE Lava™ Plus, 3M ESPE Lava™ Ultimate, IPS e.max®, VITA SUPRINITY®, Celtra Duo and more.
Reduced turnaround time: eliminating shipments of physical impressions from dentist to lab significantly reduces turnaround time. Furthermore, the lab can begin the design and production of the restorations and digital models immediately upon receiving the impression data.
Economical and ecological: by sending the impression information digitally, the financial and environmental costs associated with the shipping of dental impressions are eliminated.
Improved lab productivity: within minutes of receiving the impression data, the lab can simultaneously generate an articulated digital model and digital restorations to be fabricated in-house or at outside production centers. This eliminates all the potential errors associated with the fabrication of plaster models and significantly increases fabrication productivity.
