3M Digital Oral Care, St Paul, Minn, announced today that it will release its new 3M™ True Definition Scanner this fall. The new system will be released in tandem with 3M™ True Definition Scanner Software 5.1.
The next-generation scanner system includes a new wand, featuring a slimmer profile. The new wand—which features a narrow, angled tip—is designed to fit in the hand like a traditional handpiece and allow for one-handed scanning.
According to the company, the new 3M True Definition Scanner is built for fast scanning—once the field is prepared, “an adept user can scan a diagnostic arch in as little as 60 seconds.”
The redesigned 3M True Definition Scanner was unveiled at the 3M Digital Exchange in Minneapolis on July 31, 2014, amid a 2-day interactive conference focusing on the changing role of digital in today’s world.
