3D scanning for dental professionals

Dental tools and technologies including 2D photography, impression kits, and plaster moulds have been in use for decades. The arrival of new 3D scanning technology brings a new dimension to many of the tasks traditionally handled by these methods.

Fuel3D technology can provide a dental specialist with the instant ability to collect permanent 3D data. For example, capturing a person’s facial data in 3D prior to fitting with an orthodontic device can be completed in a matter of seconds. The file can then be stored securely to be used again post-fitting to compare face shape, providing a much more accurate representation than 2D photos can provide.

Fuel3D technology

Fuel3D develops accurate 3D scanning technologies that rapidly capture high-resolution, color 3D models of objects and faces. Our scanning systems cost dramatically less than existing 3D scanning systems, and are a fraction of the size.

The company’s market-leading handheld 3D scanner, SCANIFY, is well-suited to the 3D capture of data that can be used for:

  • Pre-treatment consulting, planning and simulation
  • Post-treatment confirmation of results

Fuel3D’s out-of-the-box scanner provides specialists with a powerful, cost-effective option for collecting and using data in 3D. The lightweight, portable scanner captures highly detailed color 3D images and data in less than 0.1 seconds and at a resolution accurate to 350 microns (0.35mm).

In addition, Fuel3D can develop custom scanning solutions for a range of additional tasks, such as:

  • Scanning dental impressions and moulds for easy, secure storage as electronic files, and faster turnaround of dentures, crowns and bridges etc.
  • Accurate measurement of finished products in 3D for quality control
  • Development of whitening trays

Benefits

  • Save time: Simple workflows and fast capture mean that facial data can be obtained in seconds.
  • Reduce shipping costs: No more postage required to send moulds to the lab, and also avoid the costs incurred when moulds are damaged in transit.
  • Reduce costs: Using SCANIFY, measurements taken by non-specialist staff are as accurate as those taken by specialists.
  • Improve quality: Use the scan data to confirm the quality of your final product, thereby reducing time needed for adjustments and consultation.
