So what is this 3M Scanner and how does it play a role in treatment?
The 3M True Definition Scanner is one of the most technologically advanced tools available. It’s the leading digital scanner which provides high quality digital imagery of your teeth in amazing detail. The 3D images collected by the scanner are stored and used to plan and implement treatment by giving a true visual replica of your teeth and bite. This means no more having to bite down into a tray of sticky goop or having to wait for a model to be made in a lab. Instead the results of the 3M scanner are instantaneous and visible to you right at the chair.
How does the 3M Scanner work?
Dr. Schulhof will use the scanner chair-side with you using a small wand-like video scanner which takes images of your teeth. The wand will be comfortably moved around your mouth, producing a 3D video image and exact replica of your mouth.
The whole process is quick and easy, and what’s more you can see the images instantly on the screen. This allows you to review and discuss the images with Dr. Schulhof, who can answer any questions you may have. The 3D model is then used by Dr Schulhof and his team to plan your orthodontic treatment, making the most accurate, best fitting orthodontics for your teeth.
The Benefits of the 3M True Definition Scanner include:
- Increased comfort
- Improved accuracy and detail
- Quicker image results

- The ability to instantly view and discuss images
