Intraoral Scanner Taps Tablet Technology for Portability



3M’s Mobile True Definition Scanner brings tablet technology to digital imaging. It’s designed to resemble the compact and ergonomic tablets used elsewhere in daily life, enabling clinicians to move freely between operatories without power cords or carts. Its flexible mounting options also help minimize workspace clutter, giving dental staff more space and maneuverability. 

Additionally, the battery-operated device is crafted to encourage informed discussions and visual communication with patients, enabling them to visualize their oral anatomy and understand proposed treatments. Setup is easy as well, going from unboxing to scanning in less than an hour, for seamless integration into the practice.

“The 3M Mobile True Definition Scanner takes the patient experience to another level. This scanner offers clinicians the flexibility to place the tablet in the patients’ hands so they can experience unprecedented access, while the clinician educates them about the treatment process,” said Karen Burques, digital oral care global business director at 3M Oral Care.

According to 3M, resolutions created from scans are more consistently accurate than other leading intraoral scanners, with a 99.7% fit rate. When paired with the smallest wand on the market, 3M states, it is comfortable for the clinician and patient alike, and it delivers precision that clinicians can trust.

The 3M Mobile True Definition Scanner costs $16,995. For more information, visit
