3M Unitek, Monrovia, Calif, introduces its Lava™ Digital Models. The models are created using 3M’s direct impression Flash CT scanning process, which gives orthodontists the ability to make accurate diagnostic measurements with less variability than digital models made from plaster. The models can also be part of high-tech presentations during new-patient consultations. Lava Digital Models can be viewed in the free-of-charge Lava™ Treatment Management Portal (TMP) software that also provides an immediate ordering of iBraces™ Orthodontic Braces. The models are stored on 3M servers for 14 years.
