About Intraoral Scanners
An intraoral scanner is a device used to create computerized, 3D, digital images of the intraoral region. It records the tooth morphology and produces accurate 3D impressions of the various structures in the intraoral region. These digital images are used to make gypsum models of the intraoral region by computer-aided design (CAD) or computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) for denial prosthetic applications. The 3D images provided by these scanners help in the production of dental prostheses like crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays and veneers.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global intraoral scanners market to grow at a CAGR of 13.38% during the period 2018-2022.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Intraoral Scanners Market 2018-2022
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global intraoral scanners market: 3M, 3Shape, ALIGN Technology, and Dentsply Sirona.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Carestream Health, Condor, Dental Wings, Glidewell Laboratories, Hint-Els GmbH Griesheim, Ormco Corporation, and PLANMECA USA.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is consistent technological advances. The technological advances in dentistry, over the years, have improved the outcomes of conventional oral therapeutic care. Digitization in the field of dentistry has also seen advances in the recent years. The introduction of digital radiography in dentistry has primary advantages, which include ease of storage and organization, lower radiation, significant time reduction, and image enhancements for quick and improved viewing.
According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing accuracy and productivity of intraoral scanners with advanced technologies. Digitization has led to a rapid evolution of dentistry. The developments in technology and advanced materials have led to the introduction of robotic and highly aesthetic prostheses. Dentists, laboratory technicians, and patients are shifting toward digital processes, which ensure more precise restorative outcomes and highly effective patient treatment. This digitization is also making the communication between dentists, laboratory technicians, and patients faster. It is helping in reducing the overall time required for dental procedures.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is high cost burden. Innovation and technological advances in dentistry enable patients to have an effective treatment, which can include any dental procedure that improves the appearance of an individual’s teeth and gums or any problem related to the oral cavity. Intraoral scanners help in the scanning of oral anatomy to provide better treatment options in terms of protheses or oral supporting structures. However, these scanners are expensive. The cost of scanning procedure can further increase depending on the required treatment and the nature of the procedure.
