DentalMonitoring has introduced ScanBoxpro, a new version of its artificial intelligence (AI)-powered dental scanner.

The new, portable offering is based on the earlier version of ScanBox and can be used by patients for AI-powered dental scans to support orthodontic treatments.

ScanBoxpro comprises two components, namely a smartphone holder and cheek retractor tube, which draws the cheeks and lips away from the buccal and labial surfaces of the teeth and gums during scanning.

When paired with the DentalMonitoring DM app, the scanner can offer consistent imaging of the teeth and gums over time to help in determining treatment progress.

It can offer sharp occlusal and lateral views. Additionally, the device has autoclavable capacity.

All patients above six years of age can use ScanBoxpro.

DentalMonitoring CEO Phillipe Salah said: “We couldn’t be prouder to introduce our latest innovation as we continue to go further and break new ground with our solutions.

“The ScanBoxpro is a game-changer for patients. It’s lightweight, portable and can easily join them on the go, anywhere, for high-quality scans powered by the first and most robust AI in the industry. In turn, it allows doctors to have control at every stage of treatment and helps automate their workflow while enhancing their patient experiences.”

Founded in 2014, DentalMonitoring focuses on using AI to develop dental and orthodontic care solutions.

The company’s product portfolio includes dental online assessment software SmileMate and AI-based remote monitoring solution DentalMonitoring.
