3M Digital Oral Care Unveils New 3M True Definition Scanner

As more dentists and orthodontists adopt digital scanning in their practices, innovating to provide the best user experience is more important than ever. 3M Digital Oral Care is changing the market again with exciting technological transformations to the 3M™ True Definition Scanner. The next generation system includes a revolutionary new wand with a profile so slim that it’s the smallest on the market. The new system will be released this fall in tandem with 3M™ True Definition Scanner Software 5.0 that supports faster, easier scanning with the same superior accuracy. With the new 3M True Definition Scanner, adopting digital scanning is now more comfortable and easier than ever before.

The new 3M True Definition Scanner system was built for fast scanning – once the field is prepared, an adept user can scan a diagnostic arch in as little as 60 seconds. The new wand is designed to fit in the hand like a traditional dental handpiece, with a narrow, angled tip and a slim profile so ergonomically balanced it allows for one-handed scanning. This significantly enhances the reach to the challenging posterior anatomy. The small profile and fast scan time make scanning with the redesigned 3M True Definition Scanner system more comfortable for dentists, orthodontists, their staff and patients.

“The digital world continues to move incredibly fast, and to keep pace with these trends, we continuously draw on the 3M innovation engine to bring fresh ideas to the table,” said David Frazee, Vice President and General Manager of 3M Digital Oral Care. “Not only is this wand the smallest on the market, but it’s designed to be incredibly intuitive, comfortable to hold and fast and easy to use.”

The redesigned 3M True Definition Scanner was unveiled at the 3M Digital Exchange in Minneapolis, Minn. on July 31, amid a two-day interactive conference focusing on the changing role of digital in today’s world. The event provided the unique opportunity for world-class dentists and orthodontists to meet, share their successes, and collaborate on how to thrive in the ever-changing digitization of healthcare, including oral care. The event’s messages of “digitally-driven disruption” and “making every connection matter,” inspired relevant, challenging and impactful dialogs on the key questions facing the industry today.

The new, next generation 3M True Definition Scanner continues to be more accurate—and more consistently accurate—than leading systems on the market1. The outstanding accuracy leads to reduced seating times and has been clinically proven in thousands of cases in the past 12 months, with a fit rate of 99.7%2.
