Key Market Trends

The Intraoral Scanners Segment is Expected to Grow Over the Forecast Period

Intraoral scanners are used for capturing direct optical impressions in dentistry. To avoid the final restoration issues, it is much needed to reproduce the intraoral condition as accurately as possible. Making an impression then is considered to be uncomfortable for the patient and time-consuming for clinicians, but with advancements in technology such as computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) things got better in shape. A 2020 study, 'comparing the accuracy of six intraoral scanners (Trios, iTero, Planmeca Emerald, Cerec Omnicam, Primescan, and Virtuo Vivo) on prepared teeth and the effect of the scanning sequence' concluded that the accuracy of digital impressions varies depending on the intraoral scanner (IOS) and scanning sequence used. Among the six intraoral scanners (IOSs) the highest accuracy was recorded with Primescan, while the most deviation was showed by Emerald in accuracy for single crown preparations.

Some of the commercially available intraoral scanners are CEREC AC with Bluecam and CEREC 3D Service Pack Version 3.85; Lava Chairside Oral Scanner C.O.S. and Lava Software Version 3.0; iTero and iTero software Version 4.0. According to a study on the accuracy of intraoral scans for primary impressions of edentulous jaws published in Feb 2020, the intraoral scanners i500, Trios 3 and CEREC Primescan scanners showed good precision and also used to obtain digital data to make individual trays and diagnostic dentures which helps in reducing cracks when sending impression from clinics to laboratories. The above conditions show that the market is carved in a positive direction and promising growth rate for the forecast period.
