How to take a Successful Intraoral Scan

  • Make sure margins are visible, use either double cord, retraction paste, cord soaked in hemodent, or soft tissue laser
  • Dry all surfaces, any liquid visible will reflect the light and create inaccurate data in the scan
  • Full palate, capture all vestibules, all posterior teeth surfaces
  • Bite Scan
  • Ortho, please specify brackets or none with model
  • Tissue scan for abutment cases (this is taken without the scan body in place)
  • Pre-op or Temporary scan is a MUST for large anterior cases.
  • Please include RX with directions and any extra photos
  • The more information, the better!
  • Scan
  • Double check scan
  • Send to Gnathodontics
