3DISC is changing the implant landscape with its new scanner, the Heron.
Founded in 2007, 3DISC started off as an R&D company but quickly matured into an agile American manufacturer and global provider of digital-imaging solutions for dental practices. Fourteen years later, 3DISC is a privately owned company with headquarters based in the United States and France with a diverse team of digital experts curated from a variety of high-tech backgrounds for one mission — to pioneer the digital dentistry landscape of tomorrow. Our goal is to deliver relevant clinical benefits to doctors through inclusively digital solutions, specifically intraoral scanners. When dental clinics choose 3DISC, they’re taking digital beyond; they can trust our commitment to the continuous innovation of our solutions that will help bring simplicity to their workday and empower doctors to provide the highest quality treatment to their patients. That’s why we created the Heron IOS.
“The Heron has arrived, and it has set a new bar for all other scanners. The choices among optical scanners have become vastly overwhelming. In its inception clinicians demanded quality scans and simplified workflow. The Heron from 3DISC not only has those qualities but is unsurpassed in ergonomics and accessibility. Finally, we have a comfortable lightweight scanner that feels like it belongs in the palm of your hand.”
– Isaac Tawil, DDS, MS

Why go digital?
Digital impressions have a number of advantages over traditional techniques. The increased accuracy of a digital impression results in fewer lab remakes and better-fitting crowns and appliances. Intraoral scanners (IOS) are also faster and more cost-efficient for users, while being less intrusive and uncomfortable for patients. Traditional impression taking methods may be tried-and-true, but the reliability and performance intraoral scanning for digital impressions have increased dramatically in recent years. Switching to intraoral scanning has never been easier or more reliable than it is today.
The Heron IOS is a fast and easy-to-use system that provides reliable and accurate results every day — take advantage of this technology in your own practice today.
