What is Sirona Primescan Digital Scanner?
The Sirona Primescan digital scanner is an innovative digital scanning system that eliminates the need for unpleasant conventional alginate impressions, which is the use of a messy putty in the mouth to capture dental impressions. Sirona Primescan is primarily used for crowns and bridge treatments where a detailed, 3D model of your teeth and gums is digitally captured and sent to a high-tech lab to create your custom crown or bridge. Not only is a digital scan far more comfortable than the old putty-based impressions, but it is also quicker and provides images that are more accurate. In terms of quality, Sirona Primescan digital scanner is becoming a reliable alternative for taking impressions of both individual teeth and the entire jaw and is regarded as the solution to a crucial issue in dental practices - the option of quicker, exact impressions that is easy to manage in the typical practice environment, dependable, and delivers clinically perfect results.
Working Mechanism of Sirona Primescan Digital Scanner
The innovative Smart Pixel Sensor of the Sirona Primescan’s optical impression system processes more than 1 million 3-D data points per second, generating photorealistic and extremely accurate data of the surfaces of the teeth. In certain cases, Primescan was seen as the most precise among the tested intraoral scanners in a study. Its dynamic depth scan technology provides ideal sharpness and outstanding accuracy, even at a measuring depth up to 20 mm, which is an absolute advantage for deeper-lying indications. This enables digital impressions even for subgingival or particularly deep preparations. In effect, all the tooth surfaces are captured, even when scanning from very shallow angles. Sirona Primescan captures the dental surfaces immediately, in the required resolution and with a high sharpness even at great depths, thereby ensuring a much more detailed 3-D model.
To keep track of the scanning process easily and to be able to evaluate the model right away, the accompanying Primescan AC acquisition center consists of a modern touchscreen that swivels and pivots as needed to make sure it is always set to the most favorable ergonomic position. Dentists appreciate the high level of comfort and easy-to-use operation of the Primescan during first-time use, which is also very much appreciated by patients. Primescan also scores high with regard to hygienic safety. Due to the acquisition center and smooth surfaces of Primescan, the hygienically critical areas, which are often difficult to clean, can be reprocessed easily, quickly, and safely.
Comprehensive Range of Applications
The accurate scanning technology enables Primescan to be applied universally. Not only does it generate highly accurate images of natural teeth and preparations, but it also provides extremely precise images of other substances commonly utilized in dentistry. For instance, implant specialists acknowledge the simple impressions of edentulous arches or sites with implants, and orthodontists greatly rate the detailed scan results for soft tissues (frenulum, gums). With this novel scanning technology, impressions can be accomplished very quickly. A full jaw impression, including model calculation, is concluded in just 2 to 3 minutes.
With Sirona Primescan, users can leverage the full potential of digital processes for superior treatment. The modular concept provides a satisfactory solution for all requirements within the practice. The digital 3-D model can be conveyed to a laboratory through the new Connect software (previously Sirona Connect), and can also be further processed with different software, for instance, for implant or orthodontic treatment planning. The newly developed Connect Case Center Inbox enables laboratories around the world to connect to the Connect Case Center. In the process, validated scan data from Primescan can be received easily for further processing in the desired workflows and programs. Alternatively, the restoration can be planned and manufactured in the practice using the new CEREC software 5, with its new design, intuitive touch functionality, and noticeably improved screen resolution.
