Dental Wings is pleased to announce it will be demonstrating the new Portable Intraoral Scanner at the Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting, Feb 23-25, Chicago LMT LabDay, Feb 24-25, and the International Dental Show in Cologne, Germany, March 21-25.
New Design Philosophy
Based on the same innovative technology as the original Dental Wings Intraoral Scanner, the new Dental Wings Portable Intraoral Scanner has all the same performance yet in a small portable form factor. It is ideal for practices with limited space or multiple operatories.
Scanning Technology – Multiscan Imaging™
The Dental Wings Portable Intraoral Scanner offers the same innovative Multiscan Imaging™ technology as the original cart version.
Five miniaturized 3D scanners in the handpiece tip directly view the teeth and soft tissue from multiple orientations simultaneously, capturing even the most difficult to see areas of preparations with minimal effort by the user. Moreover, because the lightweight, all-metal handpiece has no moving parts, no complex illumination or cooling system, it is very robust and maintenance-free.
Indications and Workflows
Open workflows for tooth-borne and implant-borne restorations, removable prosthetics, and orthodontic cases are available to users of the portable Intraoral Scanner. Seamless connectivity between dental clinics and laboratories is enabled through an intuitive communication platform called DWOS® Connect.
Open export of STL file format allows dentists immediate access to the scan data for chairside production or to collaborate with their laboratory partners while the patient is still in the chair. Users of the simple to use yet powerful Dental Wings DWOS CAD suite of design applications, as well as other open dental CAD software, will be able to import the scan data directly.
-The portability of this small, lightweight format is ideal for customers with space limitations in their dental clinic, or who wish or need to move their IO scanner frequently.
-The remarkably small handpiece ensures patient comfort and allows dentists to assume a natural position relative to their patient when scanning.
-Gesture recognition technology for infection control allows for a touch-free operation of the system.
-Review tools provide essential real-time evaluation of the clinical situation, such as occlusal distance and undercuts, ensuring that the ensuing CAD design generates the best possible restoration.
-Captured data is wirelessly transmitted to in-office or remote systems for immediate prosthesis design and production
-Clinicians can choose either the freedom of open STL data or DWOS® Connect for optimal collaboration with laboratory partners.
-The intuitive and streamlined plan editor allows the quick creation of a full prescription to be sent, along with the scan data, to the lab partner through DWOS® Connect.
-Visual and audible feedback keeps the dentist’s focus on the patient rather than on the technology.
-Flexible and customizable, the linear workflow provides the dependability of a process to accommodate respective needs.
