3M ESPE announces the 3M True Definition Scanner’s newest Trusted Connection, the IOS Technologies’ TS150™ In-Office Milling Solution. The addition of the new milling system is just the latest example of how the 3M True Definition Scanner enables dentists to expand their options putting CAD/CAM dentistry within reach of any practice.

With the 3M True Definition Scanner and the TS150 System featuring FastDesign™ Software, dentists have a simple, convenient and affordable solution for same-day dentistry. The dentist quickly captures a digital impression on the 3M™ True Definition Scanner, which is more accurate—and more consistently accurate—than leading systems on the market¹, and sends it to the FastDesign™ CAD station for the design of the dental restoration. By leveraging Glidewell Laboratories’ extensive dental anatomy library, the software creates a highly accurate crown proposal and guides the user through the rest of the design process. Once complete, the design is sent to the TS150™ mill—a powerful air-driven unit that features a 150,000-RPM spindle and an orbital mill path that prevents the burr from crossing over the margin, ensuring excellent marginal integrity for better fitting restorations. In addition, the TS150 mill is approved for Lava™ Ultimate Restorative, 3M ESPE’s unique resin nano ceramic material that delivers strength and esthetics with a fast, no firing process.

3M has worked closely with IOS Technologies, a wholly owned subsidiary of Glidewell Laboratories, to test and validate the seamless integration of the 3M True Definition Scanner with the TS150 In-Office Milling Solution. Access to this Trusted Connection is available to subscribers of 3M’s Advanced Data Plan.

“This new Trusted Connection combines the 3M True Definition Scanner’s unprecedented quality and affordability with the intuitive and easy-to-learn CAD/CAM system from IOS Technologies, making it easier for dentists to create beautiful and strong dental restorations with 3M ESPE’s Lava Ultimate Restorative,” said David Frazee, vice president and general manager of 3M Digital Oral Care. “In the midst of this fast-paced digitization of dentistry, 3M expects to be the leader in rapidly delivering new and affordable connections for dentists and labs alike.”
