What is ScanNice IO?

ScanNice IO scanners enable users to quickly acquire digital impressions to be used for CADCAM manufacturing. The technology used inside ScanNice IO was designed and developed in the United States with all dental indicated in mind. All our scanners are assembled in United States.

ScanNice IO uses a subscription business model. Entering or expanding your digital dentistry capabilities have never been easier.

Order Manager

The Order Manager features a modern design providing easy patient and Rx data entry. Search through your cases, download files for chairside production, or share files with a laboratory partner all with a few clicks. The resulting data exports are in open formats which allows for design to be completed in any CAD software. (3Shape, Dental Wings, Exocad, Kulzer, etc.)

Distributors are able to customize the Order Manager based on their needs.

Scan Software

Scan Software was developed internally to offer workflows designed by dental experts to permit maximum liberty and functionality during scanning. The scan software includes implant emerging tissue profile, import file option, and free scan mode. Clinicians will also have the ability to acquire real tooth color to be used for shade taking.

Our background is rooted in metrology. Consequently, we wanted to have an internationally recognized method for determining the performance of our 3D intraoral imaging instrument. The ISO 12836 International Standard provides a detailed method for determining the measurement performance of 3D imaging instruments. Based on this ISO method ScanNice IO has a 7 micron accuracy.


In addition to accurate 3D measurements, ScanNice IO can accurately measure color.

The CIE 1931 chromaticity diagram (shown at the left),  shows the boundaries of typical human color vision. The diagram presents the information in standard (x,y) color coordinates. The corresponding wavelength for monochromatic light sources is shown along the border. For example, a monochromatic light source at 470 nm (blue light) has a chromaticity coordinate of (x,y) = (0.1241, 0.0578). The color triangle is defined by the red, green, and blue light emitting diodes (LED’s) that we use in the ScanNice IO. Therefore, we are able to produce accurate tooth shade using the Rec 709 which is similar to current HDTV technology.
