Carestream CS3500 IntraOral Digital Scanner
With the CS 3500 intraoral scanner, practitioners can easily acquire true color, 2D and 3D images that can be used with CS Restore software to design restorations within their practice. Requiring no external heater, powder or trolley system, the CS 3500 features high-angulation scanning of up to 45 degrees and to a depth from -2 to +13mm. Additionally, the CS 3500 features a unique light guidance system that aids in the capture of the data during the image acquisition process.
Features and Benefits
Faster Scan Speed
The CS 3500 does not require users to spray powder or liquid over the patient’s teeth and gingival tissue prior to scanning, creating a more comfortable experience for the patient while reducing the amount of time needed to acquire an intraoral scan. Additionally, the intraoral scanner has an internal heater so the mirror doesn’t fog during digital impression acquisition.
The CS 3500 delivers 2D and 3D images in high resolution and in true color. Colored 3D scans allow practitioners to easily define the margin lines and identify the differences between natural tooth structure and existing restorations. This makes restoration planning more accurate for practitioners. Additionally, true color images help patients visualize their cases. In addition to 3D intraoral scanning, the CS 3500 can also acquire high resolution 1024 x 768 2D clinical images with true color.
The CS 3500 intraoral scanner includes a light guidance system that aides in the capture of the data during the image acquisition process, allowing the user to place more focus on the patient’s mouth rather than the monitor.
The CS 3500 can be easily shared between operatories because there is no heavy trolley to push around. Additionally, the intraoral scanner connects via USB 2 cable* to any PC workstation or laptop.

The CS 3500’s sleek, lightweight design (295 grams) makes it comfortable and easy for users to navigate the intraoral scanner around patients’ mouths, especially during full arch acquisitions.
While other intraoral scanners feature fixed tips that can’t be removed and/or autoclaved, the CS 3500 includes disposable tips that can be autoclaved. Since one size does not fit all, the scanner tips are available in two sizes, a standard tip for adults and a smaller, tapered tip for children and adults with small mouths.
With just a few clicks, practitioners can acquire an image within the CS 3500’s acquisition software. The software offers a high success rate of automatic bite registrations to help improve productivity, and there is no need to acquire a manual bite registration.
