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.
In-lab Impression Scanning:
Fast Turnaround Time
Laboratories can definitely benefit from direct impression scanning versus scanning a plaster model. An impression scan can be done as soon as the impression arrives in the lab, allowing the prosthetic design work to start immediately. If the technician desires a model, it can still be poured conventionally, milled, or 3D-printed using DWOS® Rapid Prototyping.
“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: enables dentists to play an active role in controlling the quality of the data being sent to the lab, i.e. to catch and correct 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: by eliminating the shipping of physical impressions from the dentist to the lab, the turnaround time is reduced by at least 24 hours. Furthermore, the lab can begin design and production of both the restorations and the digital models immediately upon reception of the impression data, saving as much as an additional 24 hours.
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 “DWOS® Connected” 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. Integrated communication between clinics, labs, and production centers — through DWOS® Connect — ensures seamless logistics, case tracking and on-time deliveries.

Digital archiving: allows for the archiving of the digitized impressions, models and restorations.
