The world’s first mobile intraoral scanner.

Dentist using true definition scanner

The dental impression is one of the most important steps in a dental procedure. Even the slightest mistake can result in costly rework – and wasted time. 

The method of creating traditional impressions in the patient’s mouth can be lengthy, uncomfortable, and inaccurate. New digital scanning technologies have dramatically improved the process, but require a large unit that can be cumbersome to shuffle between operatories.

That is, until now.

Intraoral scanning technology: digital – and now mobile

The 3M™ Mobile True Definition Scanner is the world’s first mobile intraoral scanner that operates solely on a tablet. Designed to be moved freely throughout your office on your hand, on a counter, or on a stand. It allows you to efficiently complete assessments from patient-to-patient, easily maneuvering around equipment and machines, computers, sinks, or dentist chairs.

It’s equipped with the same technology as the original full-size model, the 3M™ True Definition Scanner. You can make a full diagnostic arch by scanning the teeth with the wand. In less than 60 seconds, you can have results that are 99.7% accurate.1 Not only is the wand the smallest on the market, but it also functions as a traditional dentist tool, making the scanning process faster, easier, and more comfortable. And with a user-friendly touchscreen, the navigation interface is just as easy to use and train staff on.

What does mobile mean to me?

Mobile intraoral scanning technologies can provide a number of benefits to your practice. Adopting one of these digital products can help you:

  • Move freely among operatories
  • Achieve office-wide functionality
  • Secure faster and more accurate results
  • Elevate the experience for your patients
