Digital Impression Stand Alone Scanners are the devices that capture accurate digital impressions of the components of visible hard and soft tissues. It is used as a substitute for conventional elastomeric material. Use of Digital Impression Stand Alone Scanners reduces the rate of error prone incidences associated with dentistry. Digital impression is a cost competitive technique and saves time. Presently there are four systems that provide digital impressions stand alone scanning, viz. Lava™ chair-side oral scanner, iTero™ digital scanner, CEREC®, and E4D Dentist™.
Advanced diagnostic tools and therapies in dentistry are the factors that are enhancing the Digital Impression Stand Alone Scanners market. Rising adoption of CAM/CAD based dental restoration is also contributing to the growth of the market. However, technological limitations such as inability to scan full-arch impressions, size of camera head, etc., are the factors that are hampering the growth of the market. Evolving impressions of digital dentistry are the results of technological advances such as precision dental implant planning software, three-dimensional dental radiography with cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), high-strength ceramic (IPS e.max CAD, Ivoclar Vivadent, Amherst, N.Y.). These factors offer lot of opportunities for the growth of the market.
