Qioptiq is a partner to many
of the world's leading dental
For more than 15 years, Qioptiq has been putting its expertise in optical systems
to use building partnerships with many of the world’s leading dental equipment
manufacturers. Originally just a component supplier, we have over the years
become a true value-added OEM supplier with highly integrated products and
the full range of services that go with them.
Our complete offer for dental imaging ranges from optical modules
to intraoral cameras and optical measuring systems (intra-oral and
extra-oral) for restorative dentistry CAD and CAM processes.

Leading-edge solutions for intra-oral cameras
Intra-oral cameras are an important part of
dentistry chair units and routinely serve to
understand what surgical procedures are necessary;
they also contribute to improving patient care
during treatments and consultations.
The key to Qioptiq’s success in this sector is our
focus on providing the best possible solutions to
dentists. Our teams strive to identify important
technology trends and possibilities as soon as
they happen, in order to implement them rapidly
into our products. For example, Qioptiq was the first industry actor to get rid
of the inconvenient procedure of focusing the intraoral camera manually; our
patented autofocus feature is now part of our product line. For adaption to
different holdings an electronic magnetic field sensor is equipped to our latest
intra-oral cameras. The threshold level of this sensor can freely be adjusted to
different holder situations.
Liquid lens autofocus
A liquid lens based on the physical effect of electro-wetting — together
with a powerful focusing algorithm — allowed us to produce this reliable
and extremely fast automated focusing. Beyond its technology uniqueness,
our camera also comes in a robust, water-proof and service-friendly housing
with a very modern and ergonomic design. The housing can easily be
changed to a custom-specific design, with cover materials according to your
requirements. Moreover the camera connects to the periphery via a simple
OEM Optical systems for 3D dental cameras
3D dental cameras are an indispensable component for the increasingly popular mechanical production of dental prostheses via CAD/CAM. Their images are the basis for perfect shaping processes and the fit of ceramic prostheses. Qioptiq benefits from a long and successful track record with custom industrialization and serial production of optical systems for 3D dental measurement. For leading dental equipment manufacturers Qioptiq is designing and producing those systems according the customer requirements.
With 3D intraoral cameras, a dentist can conveniently and quickly acquire a 3D high-resolution digital impression of a single tooth as well as of the full dental arch. For example a telecentric large depth of field optical system, together with a line grid projection, allows for the precise 3D measurement of the dental topography.
Non-contact digital imprint
Qioptiq has developed a range of solutions for non-contact procedures where the area of interest is scanned in three dimensions with a compact hand-held intraoral scanner. Also for extra-oral applications, we have the full design expertise for the industrialization of custom optics system according customer specification.
