The intraoral scanner is a technological 3D dental imaging tool used for diagnosis.
With millimeter-precision, the 3D scanner takes detailed measurements of every single tooth and the whole oral cavity. It measures the interdental separation, teeth areas and surfaces, as well as the palate, gums and the rest of the elements that make up the oral-dental architecture.
This computerized and graphic record allows Dr. Goetz to make better diagnosis of dental treatments. At Ocean Breeze Prosthodontics we make use of this high definition intraoral scanner to diagnose and plan treatments in the most efficient way.
The Medit i700 makes the scanning experience comfortable for both the dentist and the patient. With powerful hardware and intelligent software, the Medit ensures a smooth, transparent and highly accurate scan that meets all the needs of the practitioner, while producing a more pleasant patient experience.

INTRAORAL SCANNER: PROCEDURE
INTRAORAL SCANNER PROCEDURE
If during the initial comprehensive exam Dr. Goetz requires the use of the intraoral scanner for a better diagnosis, the following steps are expected:
1. The specialist introduces the patient’s data and the prosthetic prescription.
2. Once the data is filled in, the specialist will use a fiber optic device which is the element introduced into the mouth to take images of it.
3. With this simple process, all the parts of the mouth are scanned until a complete 3D image is obtained.
4. Once the complete scan is done, the digital file is sent to the prosthetic laboratory with the great advantage that the reception is instantaneous.
5.Dr. Goetz will now conduct the right treatment plan with the help of the 3D images.
6. You’ll be able to take the findings with you after the exam is completed.
