Align Technology and 3M ESPE have announced that the 3M True Definition scanner has been qualified for use with the Invisalign case submission, which requires an intraoral scanner that can readily capture an accurate full arch digital impression.

Align Technology and 3M ESPE have announced that the 3M True Definition scanner has been qualified for use with the Invisalign case submission, which requires an intraoral scanner that can readily capture an accurate full arch digital impression.

This qualification will now enable Invisalign providers with a True Definition scanner to submit a digital impression in place of a traditional PVS impression as part of the Invisalign case submission process.

The 3M True Definition Scanner is the only third-party scanner that has been qualified for

use with Invisalign treatment. Align’s own iTero scanner was qualified for Invisalign case submission in December 2011.

Align supports an open systems approach to digital impressions and continues to work with intraoral scanning companies interested in developing interoperability and chair-side applications for use with Invisalign treatment, but they must meet the rigorous qualification standards established for Invisalign.

“We are pleased to provide 3M True Definition customers with the option to submit digital impressions for Invisalign treatment," said John Graham, Align Technology vice president and chief marketing officer. “Integration of digital scans with Invisalign treatment provides greater treatment efficiency to Invisalign providers and a better overall patient experience to their patients.”

“We are happy to collaborate with Align Technology in offering a fully digital workflow for the Invisalign process and are very pleased that the 3M True Definition Scanner was the first third-party system to meet the Align Technology qualification standards,” said David Frazee, general manager and vice president, 3M Digital Oral Care.

Clinicians interested in offering this new workflow to their customers can find the process at: www.3M.com/TrueDef/Invisalign.
