How to Scan an Edentulous Arch in 90 Seconds with the Medit i500 Intra-Oral Scanner

Don’t be mislead; it is much easier to scan the upper edentulous jaw than the lower, as you don’t have to deal with the tongue or saliva. With the Medit i500 we have a feature called the model display mode, where you can see how the meshwork is being formed by turning red areas to green. When scanning, you can image at the rate of “red colors turning green” so you can produce global accuracy across the arch without distortion or double images forming like you see with all intra oral scanners when they try and scan edentulous ridges on a flat plane

You can download the meshwork for this case by clicking here (Note that the gold caps were omitted on purpose)
