Even with modern extraoral dental scanners, it is necessary to use matting sprays in many applications. Scan sprays not only improve the scan quality, but also enable the scan of transparent, reflective or objects with deep pockets in the first place. Dental 3D scan sprays form a matt, white and homogeneous coating when applied. This reduces reflections and other inhomogeneities and thus creates excellent scanning conditions.
Traditional extraoral dental 3D scan sprays contain finely ground white color pigments. The pigments are applied to the object to be scanned and must be removed from the surface of the object after scanning. The pigments dispersed during the spraying process also contaminate the entire scanning environment and settle as white dust all over the scanning area on the scanners, electronic devices, and other lab and office equipment. Cleaning is possible - if at all - with enormous effort and expense. One of the pigments used, titanium dioxide TiO2, is also suspected of causing cancer via the inhalation route.
Scantist3D has been specifically developed for extraoral applications in the dental field. It is used in dental laboratories and dental technical laboratories as well as in dental care centers. The revolutionary feature is that the coating evaporates independently after the scanning process. Scantist3D thus eliminates fundamental application problems of dental 3D scan sprays in the CAD/CAM process. Since the coating evaporates by itself, there is no need for the otherwise time-consuming subsequent cleaning of the scan objects and laboratory environment. This results in enormous time and cost savings for the production of dental prostheses, in prosthetics and in orthodontics.
