The Future of Orthodontics - Today.

An accurate impression is key to effective treatment planning and orthodontic care. The iOC 3D Dental Scanner captures the contours of tooth and gingival structures, producing an accurate digital orthodontic scan in just minutes.

Benefits of Teeth Scanning:

  • ELIMINATES IMPRESSIONS, the most invasive procedure in orthodontic care.
  • SUPERIOR ACCURACY with no distortion from patient movement during set, removal of impression, or disinfection.
  • ONSCREEN VISUALIZATION allows for immediate adjustment to create the ideal orthodonitc scan the first time.
  • INCREASED PATIENT COMFORT as it eliminates the goop and gagging that comes with traditional impressions.
