The D104 line of scanners is the 5th generation of Imetric’s dental scanners and consists of three distinct devices, IScan D104ao, IScan D104 and IScan D104i. The IScan D104 is suited for the digitization of impressions and models, used as the basis for the computer aided design of various indications ranging from crowns and bridges to removable dentures to implant-based restorations (IScan D104ao). The IScan D104i is specifically designed for the most accurate scanning of implant models in order to lay the foundation for the construction of large-span, screw-retained structures with a perfect fit. For scanning of implant positions, specific implant positioning methods were developed by Imetric and special metallic Scan Adapters with very tight tolerances (< 5 μm) are used. In addition, specific testing methods are used to ensure that the accuracy of Imetric scanners for multi-implant restorations is similar to that of coordinate measurement machines.
