Epilogue

According to Research Reports World, the global intraoral scanners market post-COVID-19 anticipates a considerable rise between 2020 and 2025. The market was already growing at a steady rate in 2020. It is now expected to rise over the projected horizon.

 

Scanning the patient with an intraoral scanner can help with close monitoring of their condition or progress of their treatment remotely. The real time visuals on screen help with patient engagement and treatment acceptance. Prior and after the appointment, it is possible to work on the patient’s personalised treatment plans. Their records can get referred through the digital platform.

 

For the patient, this means minimised chair time and fewer appointments. Their digital treatment files can get emailed directly to them, with a phone calls/emails to follow up conversation.

 

It is then possible to share these directly with the laboratory – either during or immediately after the patient consultation – which not only saves time, but also avoids cross-contamination through reduced touchpoints.

 

So Dear Colleagues , find the best scanner for YOU:)
