The purpose of this study is to evaluate the reliability of repeated measurements of several dental scanners. Blue-lighted scanners, white-light scanners and optical-type scanners are used in the study of repeatability in this study. The measurement results were calculated as root mean square (RMS) and the significance level was confirmed by applying the 1-way ANOVA statistical technique (𝛼=.05). According to the statistical analysis, the scanner with the largest RMS value was Z-opt group (38.2 ㎛. Next, D-white was 35.2 ㎛ and the group with the lowest RMS value was I-blue (34.1 ㎛). The comparison of RMS means between each group was not significant (p>.05). From this result, the blue light had the lowest error in repeatability of dental scanners, but no statistical significance. The conclusion of this study is that the study results are clinically acceptable.

연구의 목적은 치과용 스캐너의 반복측정 안정성 비교를 통해 영향을 미치는 스캐너의 요소를 평가하는 것이다. 연구 목적을 달성하고자 청색광을 사용하는 I사의 스캐너와 광학 방식을 사용하는 Z사의 스캐너 그리고 백색광을 사용하는 D사의 스캐너를 본 연구의 반복측정 안정성 연구에 사용하였다. 측정 결과는 root mean square (RMS)로 계산하였고 one-way ANOVA 통계기법을 적용하여 유의수준을 확인하였다(𝛼=.05). 통계분석 결과 가장 큰 RMS 값을 가지는 스캐너는 Z-opt 그룹으로 38.2 ㎛이었다. 다음으로는 D-white가 35.2 ㎛로 나타났고, 가장 RMS 값이 적은 그룹은 I-blue 그룹으로 34.1 ㎛이었다. 각 그룹간에 RMS 평균을 비교한 결과는 유의하지 않은 것으로 나타났다(p>.05). 이 결과로부터 청색광, 백색광 그리고 광학 방식의 스캐너에서는 반복측정 안정성에서 청색광의 오차가 가장 낮은 것으로 나타났으나 통계적 유의성은 없었다. 연구결과 임상적 허용 가능하다는 것이 본 연구의 결론이다.
