Digital dentistry has come a long way from the 90’s when the CEREC machines were starting to be made readily available. At that time, CEREC machines were more of an expensive novelty than a tool the average dentist could use. There were just too many limitations and the cost was prohibitive. Times have changed and just as we have seen the transition to digital x-rays, the time is coming where digital impressions will become the standard. But one thing hasn’t changed much is the high cost of entry for digital scans.
Dentists, in general, are set in their ways in their comfort zone and so change is hard. However, sometimes change is necessary to improve the care that we give to our patients. We must always change and evolve to incorporate technology that can improve the care we give. With digital impressions, there are no more messy PVS materials to deal and the detail it gives us is incredible but then there is a learning curve with scanning images. But what appears to be a bigger factor in why dentists do not convert to digital impressions more is still the cost.
I remember checking for quotes for these units several years ago and I was shocked to see how much a unit costs. Paying for a single piece of equipment that is heading towards six figures was (and still is) hard to swallow and at that time, I didn’t purchase one because I could not justify the cost. That is where Medit hopes to shake the industry by offering high quality intraoral scanners at a fraction of what the big name brands charge. They are determined to not let cost prevent you from embracing practice changing technology.
I had a chance to talk to Dr. Armen Mirzayan of Medit and it was truly an eye opening conversation. Many of you may know Dr. Mirzayan as he was one of the founders of CEREC Docs. Dr. Mirzayan knows intraoral scanners and has the background and experience to know what works and what doesn’t and if anyone could bring you a quality scanner, he could!
It was his desire to bring digital scanners to the dental masses at significantly lower costs which led him to start Medit. Medit offers the i500 which is an intraoral scanner that offers all the quality and performance of the big box scanners at a fraction of the price. Yes, when I say fraction, it is not an exaggeration. You get unbelievable scans in an intuitive interface at reasonable prices.
Dr. Mirzayan used his extensive experience with intraoral scanners when designing the i500. In addition to the i500, Dr. Mirzayan has created educational videos/online learning and peer support forums to help dentists quickly and effectively assimilate digital impressions in their practices. He doesn’t just want you to buy a scanner then have it sit in a closet because you don’t feel comfortable using it. He encourages education and peer support because ultimately, our patients benefit from this technology and isn’t it what it is all about? Offering our patients the best quality care by utilizing the latest technology?
