Optimet launched its ultra-high precision DSi 6000 dental chairside scanner, which is said to offer patients the highest standards for complex dental prosthetics.

With the push of a button, the DSi 6000’s scanning technology reportedly can capture the dental contours of impression materials with extraordinary precision, including narrow and deep holes, steep angles and other features that are difficult to scan.

“The DSi 6000 is based on Optimet’s patented conoscopic holography, where the scanner’s transmitted laser path is exactly the same as the reflected laser path which records the shape of the dental impression,” said Optimet’s Israel General Manager Reuven Silverman.  “It can also scan a wide range of dental impression materials, meaning dentists can use the resources they are most comfortable with minus powders.  This standard industry practice minimizes reflections extraneous to dental scans but also makes them less precise.”

The DSi 6000 also reportedly helps streamline the dental prosthetic restoration process to save time and money. The scanner is said to be very easy to use with operators only needing an hour of training to be set up. Dentists can continue their usual method of administrating dental impressions while dental technicians can create prosthetics without using gypsum to fill the impression materials. There is no need to manually create molds meaning time and material costs are further saved.

“Optimet has provided thousands of dental labs around the world with quality dental scans,” Silverman said.  “Our highly experienced R&D, engineering and manufacturing teams combine their proficiencies to create high-precision tools that consistently contribute to the delivery of high quality prosthetics. We’re very excited about the levels of comfort and fit that the DSi 6000 will provide dental patients.”

Optimet provides 3D measurement sensors and systems to the automotive, aerospace and many other markets. It is a member of Ophir Photonics, a Newport company, which provides precision laser measurement equipment.
