What is Our 3D Digital Scanner & What Does it Do?

If you’re looking for the perfect smile, dental innovation is your key to achieving it. And here at Perfect Smile Spa, our advanced 3D dental scanner – the Medit i700 – is a true game-changer in the world of cosmetic dentistry.  

In this blog, we shine a light on this incredible piece of technology, exploring what exactly it is, what it does, the benefits, and how it’s reshaping the future of dental treatments at our Essex dentist practice.

What is the Medit i700?  

The Medit i700 is a state-of-the-art, hand-held wireless 3D intraoral scanner that provides high-resolution images of the oral cavity. 

Weighing a mere 245g and equipped with a UV-C LED button for effortless disinfection, it stands as one of the simplest and most advanced intraoral scanners available on the market day. It is equipped with many cutting-edge features, including an ergonomic design for optimal comfort during scans and a 180-degree reversible tip to cater to a wide range of oral anatomies.  

What Does It Do?  

Capturing images at an impressive speed of 70fps (frames per second), the Medit i700 generates highly detailed, full-colour 3D image scans of the inside of your mouth. By doing so, it streamlines the process of dental examinations for a wide range of treatments, including our dental crowns, dental bridges, and dental implants in Essex. This means faster scans, smoother appointments, and ultimately, happier patients. 

The Medit i700 can also be used for impression scanning, eliminating the need for patients to bite down on moulds to get impressions of their teeth, offering a more convenient and comfortable experience.  

Additionally, the scanner boasts anti-fog technology for increased precision and accuracy, alongside a hassle-free set up with its simple plug-and-play functionality, which also helps to streamline appointment times.
