SHINING 3D debuts Aoralscan 3D scanner at IDS 2019

The first day of the International Dental Show (IDS) 2019 in Cologne, Germany continued to welcome new digital dentistry innovations.

SHINING 3D, a Hangzhou-headquartered 3D scanner and printer manufacturer, has debuted its intraoral (within the mouth) 3D scanner, the Aoralscan. Upon its launch, Oscar Meza, VP of Global Sales of SHINING 3D stated:

“We offer a comprehensive digital dental solution from data acquisition, design, to final manufacturing, seamlessly connecting the clinics and dental labs, while we maintain our company’s core vision of offering affordable and competitive pricing.”

Designed to simplify the intraoral scanning process for both patients and dentists, the Aoralscan uses structured light triangulation technology, which takes a sequence of images of different light patterns from a surface in order to create a full 3D image.

Commonly with projected light patterns, objects that are not stationary, i.e., the inside of a person’s mouth, can be difficult to capture. This is due to the changes in the patterns caused by movement. To address this, SHINING 3D has incorporated a series of intelligent scanning and processing functions to capture accurate 3D scans.

Also, this device has eliminated the need for powder or other surface coatings to offer the patient with more comfort during the scanning process. The Aoralscan joins the company’s range of handheld 3D scanners, with the most recent additions being the EinScan Pro 2X and EinScan 2X Plus.

The integrated SHINING 3D software on the Aoralscan incorporates AI, which automatically identifies and deletes miscellaneous data from the buccal/lingual side of teeth – the surface facing the cheek – for an optimal scan. An automatic scan retracting function is also included in the software to allow rescans of areas with missing data.

The rescanned data is then aligned allows users to achieve a complete image of a particular area. This ultimately aids in the evaluation of a patient’s need for implants, restoration, and braces.

The Aoralscan will be showcased at Booth J-060-K069, Hall 03.1, Koelnmesse, Fair Grounds, Cologne-Deutz until the IDS 2019 closes on March 16th.
