Digital Scanning

Tools for digital dental impressions

Digital CADCAM scanning

The all-digital workflow of CAD/CAM dentistry starts by generating a digital impression of a patient’s mouth. From there, you can use in-house or off-site dental labs to complete a variety of procedures.

Full-featured digital scanners from Patterson allow you to instantly take a digital impression – wherever you go next, you’ll hold the keys.
