3M Lava Oral Scanner

I was lucky to see the 3M Chairside oral scanner. This product will allow you to digitally impression prepared teeth along with taking a bite. A wand takes a video impression of the tooth or teeth includint the bite registration. A model is created and a crown can then be fabricated in a conventional manner or the digital impression can be used with a CAD-CAM system to fabricate the restoration. More to follow including photos.
