I decided to get a scanner and chose the Medit due to all the positive comments users had. I haven't used it much-the pandemic started right as I received it, however, the customer service has truly been amazing! I had an online training and a rep checked in with me several times to see if I needed help. I am going to do another online training soon as a refresher. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company and scanner to anyone!read less - 6/16/2020

I needed to replace my Omnicam because the computer hardware was old and not able to keep up with the software upgrades. The computer upgrade costs from Sirona were cost-prohibitive (another reason why the Medit is so good) and I wasn't about to make the same mistake twice and replace it with another system from Sirona. I was a bit unsure about making a big switch but after speaking with Nick Statly at Cad-Ray, he eliminated all of my reservations and I ordered it. I've used it for the past week and love it. Setting it up and getting it running was simple. I would not describe this as a do it yourself process, it's much easier. If you can make a cup of coffee you can set the scanner up and start making excellent scans. All one needs to do is watch the very well laid out and easy to follow videos and save a lot of money. The image quality and ease of use hands down beats the Omnicam. Also during the current pandemic, I really feel better about being able to cold sterlize the tips vs the omnicam's just "wiping down." I almost hope my desktop scanner craps out so I can get the Medit desktop. I'm glad I listened to you Nick!!!read less - 6/04/2020

I love my medit i-500. Cad-Ray has wonderful customer support, I can not imagine getting a scanner from anyone else. Armen and Frank are great! Thanks again. Will recommend cad-ray to all my friends. - 6/16/2020
I purchased the Medit i500 from Cad-Ray December 2018. I couldn’t be happier with the scanner. The improvements Medit has made over the last 10 months are nothing short of astounding! I can’t imaging what they’ll come up with next.

As for Cad-Ray, their support has been second to none. Never have I experienced the kind of attention and help from any other company. Wether it’s with help installing, computer hardware issues or technical help they respond IMMEDIATELY!
Armen is also a huge reason why I chose Cad-Ray. No one selling a product has helped me more evolve my scanning technique. He’s quick to respond to questions and issues I feel his service is a huge reason why to buy from CAD-RAY.read less - 10/09/2019
In this video we review with the instant replay feature of the medit i500 on how to scan a denture and not introduce double images or errors in the model. We first scan the occlusale surfaces of the denture intra-orally (this does not really matter as the software doesn’t know any differently), we then image the opposing, and then bite. We then remove the relined upper broken denture and continue the imaging to capture the intaglio
There are many ways to capture the upper and lower jaw digitally and mount them correctly in a protrusive and open bite for obstructive sleep apnea devices. In this videos, we feature how to digitize conventional impressions with the Medit i500 and mount them with a model creator so that that you order printed models and/or oral appliances.
Desktop scanners accomplish this much more readily, but it is a snap with intra-oral scanners. The key is to know how to pick up hidden and deep areas, which you can often correct by trimming away excess flash of impression material with a scalpel
A recent study published in the Journal of Advanced Prosthodotics compared many Intra-oral scanners and used the Medit desktop scanner as the reference frame and benchmark for accuracy. Unfortunately the Medit Intra-Oral Scanner was not commercially available at the time of the study.
Our position at CAD-Ray is that any scanner can be accurate and inaccurate based on how it is utilized. Furthermore, once you capture accurate data, by the time you design a restoration and send it to production, the printing or milling machine has no idea where the scan came from and generally can produce restorations to the level of accuracy the resolution the scanners provide.
Keep in mind, there are dozens of ways an operator can introduce errors in imaging.
Another case delivered with the triple tray technique and the MeditT500 desktop scanner. The H&H technique was used to capture the margins and bite and there were no adjustments made to the contacts or the occlusion after delivery of the crown.
The scan, design, and fabrication was done by Burbank Dental Lab
If you are risk averse and want to take your first step into digital dentistry without altering a single thing you do in your practice, consider a desktop scanner, like the Medit T500. Combine the traditional H&H technique in a triple tray and then place the material on the scanner. In minutes you can capture the prep, the opposing, and the proper occlusion. It is incredibly accurate because you don’t pour up the impression with stone where you can introduce errors.
Here’s a video of how to take an H&H impression from YouTube by Dr. Marty Jablow:
In this video you can see the set up to scan a triple tray H&H impression. Just mount the tray on the table and insert into the imaging box. With a couple of clicks, the software automatically rotates the table so it can image everything captured by the PVS material:
Watch hour you can see how the table move so that the camera can pick up images well beyond the flash left by the PVS material
Once the impression taking is finished, the models are rendered and you can proceed with the design. You can see in this video how readily visible the margins are and how properly the models are articulated together. The fact that you don’t have to pour up the impression material with stone, you are not likely to introduce errors in topography of the models.
This is a very simple way to digitize alginate impressions and triple trays in your office and not waste time pouring them up. With a click of a button you can send the data to a lab or design and fabricate the restoration in your office.
Here’s is the stl from the scan that was imported into a software called meshmixer to visualize the three dimensional model and the the detail
