How to digitalise your dental practice using an intraoral scanner.
Many dentists are now turning to digital technology, such as intraoral scanners, to carry out tasks such as take digital impressions and 3D images. Whilst many dentists are still hesitant about fully embracing the digital age, it is clear that the benefits of digitisation are becoming more and more evident & this is why..

How do intraoral scanners work?
An intraoral scanner is a device that is used in dentistry to create impressions digitally by taking digital images of your teeth. The intraoral scanner projects a light onto the area of the mouth that need to be scanned. Thousands of images are then captured by imaging sensors and are processed by scanning software, which then produces an accurate 3D surface model that can be used to create aligners, retainers, dentures, crowns, bridges & many other procedures.
In order to digitise your practice, the first step would be purchasing an intraoral scanner. Great Lab gives all Great dentists a free scanner, software, computer & the training needed when they sign up to their lab.
