With its superior predictability, precision, and patient experience, digital scanning or impressioning is attracting an increasing following. But digital technology is such an important investment that choosing the right system can make some dentists hesitant to make the jump. The secret is to invest in digital dental technology that will add value to your current practice—as well as the practice you’ll have years from now.
Open intraoral scanners support you now, and in the future
When it comes to digital technology that can grow with your practice, intraoral scanners are the obvious choice. With 3D dental scanners, you’re not limited to a single workflow, and you have the flexibility to choose your preferred lab partners, which allows for unlimited growth potential. You get the benefits of digital dentistry—speed, predictability, patient comfort—whether you’re sending digital impressions to a lab, performing full chair-side dentistry, or a combination of both.
Not all CAD/CAM systems are alike, however. To get the most value from your investment, you need a scanner that gives you the technological power and accuracy of chairside technology in a more flexible open format. That’s why Dentsply Sirona developed Primescan—to make the highest caliber of technology available at any level of digital dentistry.
Scanning technology for all your digital dentistry needs
Primescan allows dentists to provide superior service for patients across a range of indications including restorative work, orthodontics, implantology, and sleep appliances. Dr. Michael Snider, DMD of Cambridge Dental Associates, says that while there are other good scanners on the market, none of them offer the complete package that Primescan does. “Some scanners are really good for ortho; some of them are really good at doing models and scanning quickly. But Primescan combines the best features of all of them in one scanner. It’s the only camera that allows you to do the best in scanning for restorative, ortho, and implant treatment.” That flexibility without sacrifice to quality makes Primescan a popular choice for dentists looking to break into digital dentistry without limiting their future options.
Compatible with any lab partner
Primescan easily integrates with existing lab workflows and software, so you can improve speed, accuracy, and patient experience while continuing to work with your existing lab partner. Dr. Snider appreciates the increased predictability Primescan adds to his existing lab relationship. “Rather than shipping a conventional model and hoping the model and the impression get there on time and there’s no distortion, I can use Primescan and get the scans there almost instantaneously. Now I can confirm not only that the impression is in good condition, but I can also see that the lab has received it. With today’s shipping times and supply chain challenges, Primescan digital scanning is just more predictable.”
Connect Case Center seamlessly connects dentists with labs
Primescan facilitates seamless communication with labs using the Connect Case Center to provide safe data transfer in seconds and instant messaging for lab feedback while your patient is still in the chair. Using the Connect Case Center inbox, labs can access Primescan users worldwide and receive orders from new and existing customers. The ability to easily transfer data like screenshots and PDF files, communicate via chat, and make annotations and comments directly on the data, allows dentists and lab partners to discuss cases and give feedback instantly. This improved communication between dentists and labs is a huge benefit when you encounter unexpected challenges, according to Dr. Snider. “With Primescan, If I’m getting ready to send some crowns to the lab and realize I don’t have as much clearance as I thought, I can just have a conversation with the lab about changing the materials we discussed, or I can go in and adjust my own prep.”
Better patient engagement for improved care acceptance
When patients aren’t in pain, they don’t always understand the value of treatment. With its rotating, touchscreen technology, Primescan allows patients to actively engage with their own treatment, which can be more effective than recommendations from the dentist alone. “I think as dentists, we sometimes get in our own way,” says Dr. Snider. “We like to talk about teeth, and we use all these terminologies that might not be as relatable to patients as we think. But everyone right now, from the youngest patient to the oldest, is used to interacting with a touchscreen. Primescan allows them to touch and zoom and rotate the image, and that’s how you get patient buy-in to care.”
