3M™ True Definition Scanner

The 3M™ True Definition Scanner allows you to move into digital orthodontics with ease.

Accurate. Precise. The 3M True Definition Scanner supports open STL files, so you can work with your orthodontic lab, design and mill chairside, or share files with other trusted partners for expanded clinical solutions. And, because your digital impressions are generated by 3M's 3D-in-motion video technology, they'll feature extraordinary detail with industry leading accuracy — providing more control and consistency than traditional processes.

Enter the Digital World with Proven Accuracy

When it comes to creating the perfect impression, accuracy is everything. The 3M True Definition Scanner is a technologically advanced system designed to deliver the most accurate, precise impressions compared to any other leading systems on the market*. Utilizing 3M's unique 3D-in-motion video imaging technology, the system creates a true replica of the oral anatomy from real-time video data. The system provides the flexibility to work with any lab and your choice of appliances. And when used to create customized Incognito™ Brackets, the 3M True Definition scans provide excellent bracket fit.

Outstanding performance to enhance your practice workflow

The ability to view results immediately with the 3M True Definition Scanner facilitates the workflow process, with less stress for you and your staff, fewer procedural steps, and less hassle.

Digital files enable better communication with labs and more efficient transfer of information. The result is a more transparent process and readily accessible files.

Technology to enhance your patient's experience

With the 3M True Definition Scanner, patients no longer have to endure the discomfort, mess and remakes associated with traditional impressions. This modern alternative not only avoids the discomfort of impressions, it also provides patients with the peace of mind that comes with advanced technology.

By seeing detailed images right on the screen, patients are better engaged in the process and can comprehend a 3D digital view of their oral anatomy. Further, the ability to review and discuss images in real-time with the doctor allows for a much more interactive patient/doctor relationship.

3M Connection Center: Store, share and connect with ease
