Estudo encontra diferenças na precisão de escâneres intraorais

February 26, 2021 | News

SEOUL, Coreia do Sul: Embora os escâneres intraorais já existam há mais de três décadas e seu uso na prática odontológica esteja aumentando, poucas investigações avaliaram a precisão de escâneres 3D de implantes digitais. Como as discrepâncias entre os componentes do implante devem ser mínimas, pesquisadores da Escola de Odontologia da Universidade Nacional de Seul avaliaram a exatidão de dez escâneres intraorais na determinação das posições dos corpos de escaneamento de implantes simulados.

S obzirom na to da nepodudaranja između implantatskih komponenti moraju biti minimalna, istraživači sa Stomatološkog fakulteta na Državnom univerzitetu Seul su procijenili tačnost deset intraoralnih skenera u određivanju pozicija za simulirane skenove tijela implantata.
