Dentsply Sirona Primescan is Now Available for Demos


As digital becomes more and more a part of our everyday practice of dentistry, we are seeing companies bringing some incredible gear to market.

One of the newer entries into the world of digital impressions is Dentsply Sirona.  Their device is called Primescan and if you are considering getting into the digital impression game, you should definitely check it out.

I got the opportunity to work with Primescan in its early days about 15 months ago.  Even at that stage, it was an impressive piece of hardware.  As most people in the industry know, Sirona has been selling CEREC since the very early 90s.  Now with the Sirona merged with Dentsply the combined company has pushed things even further.

Primescan will allow you to interface with CEREC so that you can provide same day prosthetics, but if you prefer, you can send cases to  an outside lab as well.

The device allows you to process more the 1 million 3D points per second.  That basically translates to capturing about 50,000 images per second.  Capturing is just a matter of gently moving the wand over the teeth and watching the 3D model appear on the screen.  The device also has a pretty incredible depth of field.  It can capture images as far as 20mm away.

For more info on Primescan head on over to the product web page.  You can even schedule a demo from the page.  Enjoy!
