Primescan comes with three different sleeve options.

According to Dentsply Sirona, Primescan, the company’s intraoral scanner, ensures high-quality digital impressions and exceeds minimum recommended hygiene guidelines. The company states that this is the only scanner that provides a variety of disinfection and sterilisation procedures with three different sleeve options. The new stainless steel sleeve with a disposable window is now available, and Dentsply states that it can be reprocessed in an autoclave, completing the comprehensive hygiene concept of Primescan. The new stainless steel sleeve is available now and can be purchased separately. The company says the stainless steel sleeve, with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal window, can be reprocessed with wipe disinfection, hot air sterilisation or high-level disinfection. It says the plastic sleeve is an alternative for the highest hygiene requirements and can be disposed of after each use, and all sleeves have a completely closed viewing window to prevent liquid from entering during scanning.
For Dr Daniel Aniol, dentist from Bornheim, Germany, sterilisation is more important than ever because of the new environment in which dentists are working: “Safety and flexibility in the way we work are of central importance to me and my practice team. The ability to choose from a variety of reprocessing methods with Primescan is an important benefit of the system”.
