Dental Wings introduces its first intraoral 3D scanner

Intraoral Scanning New Products

Dental Wings is proud to announce that it will be demonstrating its new intraoral scanning system at the upcoming Chicago Midwinter Meeting, Chicago LMT LAB DAY, and IDS in Cologne, Germany. The DWIO (Dental Wings IntraOral) system will offer a number of innovations – among which the most impactful is the extremely small scanning tip – aimed at easing the adoption of intraoral scanning by a broad audience in the dentist community.

Design philosophy

The DWIO system was designed to address the needs of dental professionals looking for an intuitive technology for capturing digital impressions. With the overall objective to help the dentist focus on the patient rather than the technology, Dental Wings offers an extremely small scanning tip as well as a simple and comprehensive infection control protocol.

Scanning technology

Based on a novel and incredibly compact 3D capture technique called Multiscan Imaging™, the DWIO system allows the dentist or assistant to take digital impressions in a natural, fluid manner using a handpiece very similar in size, shape and weight to existing dental handpieces. Essentially, five miniaturized 3D scanners in the handpiece tip directly view the teeth and soft tissue from multiple orientations simultaneously, capturing even the most difficult to see areas of preparations with minimal effort by the user. Moreover, because the lightweight all-metal handpiece has no moving parts, no complex illumination or cooling system, it is very robust and maintenance free.

Indications and workflows

Open workflows for tooth-borne and implant-borne restorations, removable prosthetics, and orthodontic cases will all be available to DWIO users, while connecting dental clinics and laboratories in a seamless manner via DWOS Connect. Open export of STL data will allow dentists to have access to the scan data immediately for chairside production or to collaborate with their laboratory partners while the patient is still in the chair. Users of Dental Wings’ simple to use yet powerful DWOS CAD suite of design applications, as well as other open dental CAD software, will be able to import the scan data directly.
