Manufacturing company 3M Co. has launched what it says is the first tablet-based mobile intraoral scanner.

3M Delves Into Tablet-Based TechnologyThe Mobile True Definition Scanner is a one-of-a-kind, tablet-based intraoral scanner that fits in a user’s hand, allowing clinicians to move freely between operatories without power cords or carts.

"The 3M Mobile True Definition Scanner takes the patient experience to another level,” said Karen Burquest, digital oral care global business director at 3M Oral Care. “This scanner offers clinicians the flexibility to place the tablet in the patient’s hands so they can experience unprecedented access, while the clinician educates them about the treatment process. Because the tablet is compact and operates on battery, clinicians can easily hand carry the scanner between operatories. This scanner will impact the landscape of digital dentistry.”

Flexible mounting options help to minimize workspace clutter, offering more space for the clinician and assistant to maneuver in small spaces. Informed discussion and visual patient communication is made easy with a better understanding of proposed treatments. Users can unbox and scan in less than an hour.
