After debuting with a regional rollout, the 3M ESPE Lava Chairside Oral Scanner (C.O.S.) is now available to dentists nationwide, allowing offices across the country to experience the productivity boosts achieved with digital impressioning. Additionally, the scanner’s upgraded software, Lava Software 2.0 for C.O.S., offers dentists greater ease of use. With nationwide availability and a full list of approved indications that includes crowns, multiple adjacent units, inlays/onlays, 3- to 4-unit bridges, seated implant abutments, and veneers, it is now easier than ever for dentists to prescribe traditional PFM or sophisticated CAD/CAM restorations and experience the benefits of digital workflow. Data shows that the precise restorations created with the Lava C.O.S. bring dramatic productivity gains and attract new patients to dental offices. By using the Lava C.O.S. to create detailed 3-D impressions, dentists have reported a 41% reduction in seating times for single-unit crowns.
