As more dental professionals adopt digital scanning, user experience is more important than ever. With that in mind, 3M Digital Oral Care has announced technological transformations to the 3M True Definition Scanner.

As more dental professionals adopt digital scanning, user experience is more important than ever. With that in mind, 3M Digital Oral Care has announced technological transformations to the 3M True Definition Scanner.

The system includes a new wand with a slim profile, reported to be the smallest on the market.

The new system will be released this fall in tandem with 3M™ True Definition Scanner Software 5.0 that is designed to support faster, easier scanning with the same accuracy.

The new 3M True Definition Scanner system was built for fast scanning-once the field is prepared, an adept user can scan a diagnostic arch in as little as 60 seconds. The new wand is designed to fit in the hand like a traditional dental handpiece, with a narrow, angled tip and a slim profile said to be so ergonomically balanced it allows for one-handed scanning.


This reportedly enhances the reach to the challenging posterior anatomy. The small profile and fast scan time are engineered to make scanning with the redesigned 3M True Definition Scanner system more comfortable for dentists, orthodontists, their staff and patients.

We asked Dental Products ReportEditorial Advisory Board member Dr. Parag Kachalia for this thoughts...

“The digital world continues to move incredibly fast, and to keep pace with these trends, we continuously draw on the 3M innovation engine to bring fresh ideas to the table,” said David Frazee, Vice President and General Manager of 3M Digital Oral Care.

“Not only is this wand the smallest on the market, but it’s designed to be incredibly intuitive, comfortable to hold and fast and easy to use.”
