The Lythos Digital Scanner, created by Ormco, is a handheld, intra-oral, 3-D imaging device used to gather the most precise images of patients' teeth, gums and oral structures. These digital images replace the uncomfortable, unpleasant-tasting, messy and sometimes inaccurate traditional putty impressions. No bulky trays or sticky putty needed!
With both speed and comfort, the orthodontist is able to digitally photograph a patient's entire oral cavity in an average of 7 minutes. They are then able to store these digital images for up to 10 years!
