Digital impressions with Primescan: easier, faster and more accurate than ever before.

With its completely new, patent pending digital impressioning technology Primescan— the new intraoral scanner from Dentsply Sirona—enables high-precision digital impressions to be taken of the entire jaw. “Dentists rightly expect products and solutions from Dentsply Sirona, that make their work at the dental practice easier, safer and better,” says Dr. Alexander Völcker, Group Vice President, CAD/CAM and Orthodontics at Dentsply Sirona. “Primescan offers the option of faster, precise impressioning which is easy to manage in the usual practice environment, is reliable, delivers clinically flawless results, and which is simply fun to use.”

Primescan’s optical impression system has been decisively developed. The scan of the surfaces of the teeth is done with high-resolution sensors and shortwave light, capturing up to one million 3-D data points per second. With optical high-frequency contrast analysis, they can now be calculated more accurately than ever before. Dentsply Sirona has submitted a patent application for this process. With Primescan, it also is possible to scan deeper areas (up to 20 mm). This enables digital impressions even for subgingival or particularly deep preparations. Virtually all the tooth surfaces are captured, even when scanning from very shallow angles. Primescan captures the dental surfaces immediately, in the required resolution and with a high sharpness even at great depths, thereby ensuring a more detailed 3-D model.
