MEDIT is pleased to announce that its i700 intraoral scanner was chosen as a 2021 Cellerant Best of Class Technology Award. The i700 was selected by a panel of the most prominent technology leaders in dentistry. This prestigious award is given to select new products that demonstrate groundbreaking technological innovation and the potential to positively change the course of dentistry for the better.
“During what is once again proving to be a very challenging year for the dental industry, each of these extraordinary companies and their award-winning technologies have earned the right to celebrate. I strongly encourage dentists to take the opportunity to engage with these companies and their innovations both virtually and in person,” said Dr. Lou Shuman, CEO of Cellerant and founder of the Best of Class Technology Awards. “Our panel spent many hours in close discussion in order to identify these standout products. Pay close attention to our winners as they are truly leading the way to provide you what is best in today’s contemporary practice.”
Paul Feuerstein, DMD, Editor-In-Chief for Dentistry Today and one of the product evaluators on Cellerant’s panel of experts says this about the i700: “The new i700 model is lightning fast, accurate and is loaded with new features. And its price point makes it even more attractive. New features such as direct USB connections, a detachable cable and UV-C LED disinfection are only some of the advancements. Its Medit Link software allows totally open access to all digital products for treatment planning, design and manufacturing. Their website has technical information as well as videos of some very interesting cases.”
Brian Connolly, VP of Business Development for Medit USA, has this to say about the award: “I’m grateful for the acknowledgement and further validation from dental industry experts regarding the merits of the i700 intraoral scanner,“ states Mr. Connolly, “Medit’s commitment to innovation and offering dental professionals the solutions they need to provide patients with exemplary dentistry and optimal outcomes is the driving force behind everything we do.”
Powering the i700 is a super-fast camera that captures up to 70 frames per second. This means more data with each pass resulting in a smooth and quick scanning experience with realistic colors and a crisp image. The camera and other internal components have been reduced in size creating a new handpiece that is smaller and lighter, weighing just 245g (8.64oz). The tips have been redesigned and are now reversible and autoclavable 100 times, increasing comfort of use and ease of maintenance. The cable is also now detachable for easy maintenance and improved portability.
