An ultimate digital dentistry with Medit i900

Medit explains the innovations made with its i900 intraoral scanner and its implications for the future of digital dentistry.

How far can technology develop and change the landscape of digital dentistry? Over the past few years, the transformations have been dramatic. From diagnostics to the printing of prosthetics with 3D printers, intraoral scanners have revolutionised every aspect of the dental clinic. Now with the integration of AI, the future direction of intraoral scanning has become a major topic of curiosity across the dental market.  

The recently released Medit i900 brought a few surprising innovations to bear that have never been seen before. The ultralight unibody design, touch pad and touch band are all novel changes set to revolutionise the classic intraoral scanner experience.

How can the Medit i900’s buttonless touch pad and band influence practitioners’ workflows?

This feature enables clinicians to complete scanning while never removing their hand from the scanner. Typically, an intraoral scanner is connected to a laptop or computer. However it may not always be conveniently situated next to the practitioner. Users sometimes need to change their position to check and manipulate the scan data using a mouse or touch screen. However, with the i900’s comprehensive touch-based interface, users can complete the entire process solely by navigating with the scanner.

Medit’s latest scanner not only introduces modern functions but also enhances core scanning capabilities with the addition of 10-bit imaging technology. Michael Lee, CTO of Medit, stated: ‘The Medit i900 is designed to scan easily regardless of a user’s scanning techniques and patients’ various oral structures. To achieve this goal, we developed a new optical engine while making it smart and compact. This reduces capturing inconsistent scanning data while increasing resolution and detail.’

Increased efficiency

The Medit i900’s updated optical engine is combined with a revised wider field of view scanning tip, increasing efficiency dramatically. Even challenging clinical scenarios, like an edentulous arch, can be easily and quickly scanned with the i900.

Dr Gerard Duminil, a private practitioner specialising in oral rehabilitation in France, also commented. He said: ‘The wide field of view is a significant advantage for a fully edentulous maxillary arch. The larger capture window enables the entire scanning process to be completed in seconds, producing high-quality results.’

In the rapidly evolving landscape of digital dentistry, the Medit i900 is introducing fresh ideas and technologies to the market while further developing its core scanning functionality. The i900’s debut has once again elevated the standard for intraoral scanners, igniting excitement among dentists worldwide about the possibilities it offers.
