Vatech said it has launched a new line of imaging-based oral scanners as part of its goal to expand its product portfolio for the digital dentistry market and increase sales in new businesses.

Vatech's oral scanner, called EzScan, is a product that scans three-dimensional information of a patient's teeth and surrounding tissues during prosthesis, implant, and orthodontic treatment.
In the case of prosthetic treatment, for example, the device transmits the digital data such as teeth occlusion, distance, angle, and height to a computer immediately after scanning the patient's mouth. The device also does not require patients to hold on to gypsum during the scanning phase, minimizes the error range, and reduce the procedure time.
The Korean company specializing in dental imaging expects that the launch of its new oral scanner will bring synergy to the existing diagnostic imaging business by targeting new markets.
"EzScan, weighing about 165 grams, is lighter than any of the products manufactured by our competitors," the company said in a news release. "It also features fast stitching speed."
The company plans to market the product first in Italy from June and move on to other markets such as Korea and the U.S., it added.
