Intraoral Scanning

Intraoral Scanning

The trend within the dental industry is for the entire workflow to become digital … and rightly so for many reasons. Primarily, once the impression or any data is captured digitally, it is stable and can be manipulated as needed without distortion. Obtaining precise digital impressions allows for patient data to be processed extremely accurately. The files can also be sent between your practice and our lab via the internet without the inherent delay of analog shipping. This saves time and money while yielding a better product!

We’ve invested in the highest quality equipment possible at our digital dental laboratory, so you can feel comfortable using I.O.S. technology for your patients. We’re also experiencing the growth of digital dentistry, and have developed our digital capabilities at Nash Dental Lab so you can upload scans to us from any open digital dental scanner.

These are a few of the scanners we work with regularly:

  • 3m True Definition™
