Digital impression is the special technology designed to create a three-dimensional (3D) replica of soft and hard tissues in the mouth for dental treatments namely restoration. Digital impression scanners capture highly accurate and clear impressions and eliminate the tedious traditional impression process. The scanned images are then transmitted to the dental laboratory for further fabrication of dentures and bridges using Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) software solutions. Using intraoral scanners helps in accelerating dental processes such as bridges, dentures, and other orthodontic treatments.
The Global Digital Impression Standalone Scanners Market was valued for US$ 198.1 Mn in 2021 is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 16.2% during the forecast period.
Global Digital Impression Standalone Scanners Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic:
The COVID-19 Pandemic had adversely affected the Digital Impression Scanners industry. Moreover, the Digital Impression Scanners which is widely used in the Dentist industry to create a three-dimensional (3D) replica of soft and hard tissues in the mouth for dental treatments namely restoration got hindered. Furthermore, dentist organizations were recommending to postpone the elective procedures for few months. For instance, In March 2020, American Dental Association recommended to postpone the elective procedures for few weeks. Dental surgeons are also at high risk due to the COVID-19. So it hampered the growth of digital impression scanners market.

Digital impression is a novel technology used to create a 3D replica of hard and soft tissues in the mouth for dental treatments. Over the years, the use of digital impression standalone scanners has increased significantly worldwide for oral surgeries and dental replacements. Digital impression is an easier process for patients and reduces their number of visits for the same purpose. This encourages dentists to install digital impression standalone scanners. Furthermore, digital impression is a highly accurate method and delivers dental restoration treatment with minimum errors.
The Digital Impression Standalone Scanners Market was valued for US$ 198.1 Mn in 2021.
Elastomeric impression requires an impression tray, tray adhesive, alginate, elastomeric impression materials, impression material disinfection, and occlusal registration material. Furthermore, materials require a certain time to set, and the process results in toxic fumes. An elastomeric impression costs around US$ 40 per full arch, while digital scanning costs less for dentists due to less material usage. Moreover, technological advancements in the market have led to the introduction of low cost and convenient devices, which in turn, is expected to accelerate growth of the global digital impression standalone scanners market over the forecast period. Digital impression has reduced the time required for taking teeth impression. With the introduction of digital impression standalone scanners, the time taken for this task has further reduced compared to the chair-side scanning systems. Digital impression standalone scanners ensure that the scanning procedure is completed in around five minutes depending on the patient's anatomy, operator’s level of expertise, patient compliance, and whether the targeted scan is a quadrant or full arch. Hence, these factors are expected to propel the global digital impression of standalone market growth over the forecast period.
