NeoScan™ 1000: A Practical Solution for Digital Impressions

When it comes to implementing digital protocols, board-certified prosthodontist Marcus Dagnelid, DDS, believes dentists do not always have to spend top dollar to get top quality.

"Currently, I'm running two clinics, 26 dental chairs in all, with a focus on both general and specialized dentistry," says Dagnelid, who has been in practice for roughly 20 years and also lectures, focusing on digital protocols.

As an early adopter of digital dentistry, Dagnelid has long found a "really high investment barrier" to implementing digital protocols. "I've paid a lot of money to be on the cutting edge, and it's a problem when you're lecturing on digital protocols to your colleagues, but the investment is so steep that it's difficult for them to actually apply the protocols being taught," he laments.

Dagnelid explains that Neoss has introduced an intraoral scanner to the market, the NeoScan 1000, that "has the same precision as the competition, but the pricing model is very accessible." This, he suggests, means more dentists can implement digital protocols. "This helps the dental industry, it helps patients, and it's important for dentists to make this change."

After being part of early testing on the NeoScan 1000, Dagnelid says he has had "excellent results" using it for digital impressions at his clinic. The scanner, he adds, is "superfast, lightweight, and easy to use." It has a simple USB cable connection and full touchscreen support.

"Patients thoroughly enjoy the fact that we use digital protocols," he says. "It allows the patient's journey to be much more customized. They have a better understanding of their treatment because they can virtually see their own teeth and, being a digital platform, we can communicate more clearly with them."

Designed for scanning accuracy and speed, the competitively priced, compact NeoScan 1000 enables a flexible digital workflow with open and compatible output. It achieves a 16 mm x 14 mm high-definition field of view and, with high-resolution and vivid color images, enables users to easily distinguish tooth structure and soft tissues.

With a large clinic, Dagnelid appreciates that Neoss has "lowered the threshold" in intraoral scanner pricing and that the scanner is easy to share between dental chairs. "It means that scanning is more accessible for more of my doctors at the same time. This drives customers to the office as well."

"When I lecture now, I say that most of the ‘question marks' regarding digital dentistry and digital impressions have been answered already. You have higher predictability, and the learning curve is not as steep as it was before," says Dagnelid, who notes that Neoss's NeoPro software is intuitive, simple, and very fast. "Neoss is removing the barriers to actually get going. I would encourage everyone who hasn't tried it yet to do so. Get on the digital train because it's already left!"
