As with all 3Shape products, the scanning workflow is simple, intuitive and designed with you in mind. Delivered with a range of 3Shape's DentalSystem software options, you business will enjoy the benefits this system can offer in terms of productivity, accuracy and new business opportunities.

Scanning a case is simple

Once you have created your order within 3Shape Dental Manager, the software will guide you through the scan process to achieve scans of the highest accuracy and detail level.

  • When scanning models the full model is scanned with the dies in place and then each die is scanned individually and superimposed on the original model scan. This workflow ensures maximum scan coverage of the die, margins and proximal areas. For efficient scanning of multiple dies, the D710/D810 scanners provide an indexing platform so that up to six dies can be loaded and scanned in the same scan process.
  • Impression scanning utilises 3Shape's patented Adaptive Scanning process where the scan script is dynamically adjusted to optimise the scan and ensure full capture of the impression. The user has the option to define regions where higher levels of scan detail are required thus providing optimal scan times.
Before Adaptive Scanning
The first scan result is incomplete in the preparation, proximal and contact areas, which will jeopardize fit and clinical performance.
After Adaptive Scanning
A complete and accurate scan after adaptive scanning of incomplete areas automatically applying the optimal combination of 2 cameras and 3-axis motion.
  • Scanning of Implant cases require two stages scanning, with and without the scan abutment. Scanning without the scan abutment ensures maximum coverage of the proximal areas and ensures no area is obscured. Scanning with the scan abutment ensures reliable and accurate capture of the location, inclination and rotation of the implant.
  • Scanning can be completed with or without scanning the antagonist (model or bite registration) although of course it is strongly recommended that an antagonist is scanned when the order involves the creation of full anatomical crowns.
