How to Use the Triple Tray Impression Scanning Feature of the inEos X5 Scanner
Posted Nov 22, 2016 in Technical
Ashkan Afghan, BSBM, RDA, demonstrates the triple tray impression mode of Dentsply Sirona’s inEos X5 scanner. This fast, accurate function reduces, if not eliminates, the need for models and model work prior to scanning.
Restorative Challenge: The patient had an old, large filling on tooth #2 and needed a crown on tooth #3 after endodontic treatment. The dentist sent a triple tray impression with a prescription for two full contour zirconia crowns.
Treatment Plan: I used the triple tray impression scanning feature of the inEos X5, inLab SW 15 software and inLab MC X5 mill to design and fabricate the two crowns made of Dentsply Cercon® ht Zirconia.
STEP 1: I trimmed the excess impression material to make sure the scanning beam would have optimum access to the scan area. I used Denu Easy Scan Spray to eliminate the shine from the impression to improve the scanning outcome.
