Canadian company Care Stream is a leading provider of digital dentistry technologies. Very popular with dental professionals, their solutions cover dental scanning, implant planning, prosthesis design, manufacturing and aid in communication across the dental community. In 2016 the Straumann Group, a top manufacturer of dental implants and supplies, partnered with Care Stream offering the dental community access to cutting edge software and scanning technologies. The Straumann CARES intra-oral scanner was developed by Care Stream and provides high precision scans along with access to fully integrated software. Thus, enabling the design of a wide range of prosthetic restorations and milling solutions.
Accuracy is the combination of two important and complementary elements: trueness and precision. Trueness refers to whether a measurement matches the actual quantity being measured, while precision indicates the ability of that measurement to be consistently repeated.
According to “Accuracy of Four Intraoral Scanners in Oral Implantology: A Comparative In-Vitro Study”1, the CS 3600 surpassed leading competitors by delivering the best performance in terms of overall trueness.
Not only did the CS 3600 have the best trueness results, it was also “significantly better” than the three other intraoral scanners. Because the “CS 3600 gave the best trueness results,” the study recommends its use in “similar clinical settings.”
The final takeaway gleaned from the study was that “no statistically significant differences were found in the precision among the four different IOS (intraoral scanners).”
At your practice, every second counts. Every extra step during image acquisition is a distraction from your daily work. Fortunately, when digital scanning is made simple and easy, you have more time for diagnosis, treatment planning and, more importantly, time to focus on what really matters—caring for your patients. Carestream Dental intraoral scanners transform your practice by helping you and your patients move quickly and comfortably from exam to treatment. And now, with two great scanners to choose from, you can find a solution that meets your exact clinical needs for fast, easy and accurate digital imaging.
Due to its open system architecture, the CS 3600 works with any CAD software that accepts STL files. Use the button located below to view a list of companies that have validated workflows with the CS 3600 intraoral scanner.
Continuous scanning allows the user to scan in a smooth, uninterrupted manner, greatly reducing the time it takes to capture a digital impression. This high speed makes it ideal for time-consuming dual arch scans.
Comfortable scanning is made possible with the CS 3600. The normal tip is ideal for general scanning, while the interchangeable and unique side-oriented tip is specifically designed with a lower tip height to help scan in difficult-to-reach areas like the buccal, occlusal and posterior regions, while the posterior tip is designed specifically for scanning the posterior region in children and adults with smaller mouths. All styles are autoclavable to support optimal sterilization for infection control and can be used up to 60 times.* The CS 3600 tips also offer the shortest height of any autoclavable tips in the market, making it comfortable for even the smallest mouths.
Reach expert scanning level quickly with live scanning warnings that provide feedback in real time, indicating areas of the scan that lack detail and require additional scanning to optimize your clinical outcome.Green arrows guide the way: Green arrows display the ideal direction in which the user should rescan missing information, providing real-time feedback that significantly increases scanning efficiency. Get alerted of missing data: Yellow and green highlights alert you of any gaps or holes in the scan, indicating that the area needs to be rescanned for optimal detail.
Undercut check automatically detects undercuts based on the selected area, helping to ensure your digital impression is optimal for the restoration. Aesthetic scans that reflect reality: Self-adaptive filling automatically identifies holes and selects the appropriate anatomical color for the optimal aesthetic outcome.
