    3M ESPE’s latest 'Trusted Connection' teams the 3M True Definition Scanner with the Straumann CARES System

    Find out how this newly available Trusted Connection promises to simplify your digital workflow.

    The latest 3M Trusted Connection to dental labs pairs the 3M True Definition Scanner with the Straumann CARES System, allowing dentists to restore Straumann implants with original CARES prosthetic solutions from a single intra-oral scan.

    Available now, this new digital restoration process is the latest addition to a growing network of Trusted Connections available to practitioners who depend upon the 3M True Definition Scanner.

    “This new connection gives dentists a simple but powerful tool to initiate a highly sophisticated workflow,” said David Frazee, vice president and general manager, 3M Digital Oral Care. “The final results are not only accurate and effective, but convey an impressive image to patients that lets them know their dentist is on the cutting edge.”

    In the new workflow, a dentist using the 3M True Definition Scanner simply captures a digital impression with the Straumann CARES Mono Scanbody. Within the scanner’s prescription screen, the dentist selects the Straumann implant platform and the desired tooth-borne restoration or abutment. The digital impression and prescription are then sent to a dental lab using the Straumann CARES system.

    At this point, the dental lab can design and order original prosthetics for implant-borne or tooth-borne restorations. For implant cases, Straumann® CARES® X-Stream™ provides a seamless process for designing and ordering the abutment and the final restoration in a single design. High precision resin working models with a socket for the Straumann® Repositionable Implant Analog can be ordered directly from Innovation MediTech (a DREVE company). The dental lab then receives the restoration, abutment and model for finishing, and the dentist receives the completed case in a single shipment from the dental lab.

    “The Trusted Connection is a great example of how we have teamed up with leading providers of intraoral scanning technology to offer more options, simpler solutions, greater precision and higher productivity to dental professionals,” said Frank Hemm, executive vice president – customer solutions & education, Straumann. “Together with 3M ESPE, Dental Wings and Innovation MediTech, we offer a completely digital workflow – from digital impression to finished CAM prosthetic – with what we believe is an unparalleled level of choice, flexibility and precision.”

    This new Trusted Connection is available to dentists who subscribe to the Advanced Data Plan offered with the 3M True Definition Scanner in North America. The Advanced Data Plan is a subscription to the 3M Connection Center, allowing dentists to send and store cases for a variety of indications including digital implant workflows and clear aligner treatment from Invisalign.  All of the affordable, subscription-based data plan packages for dentists or labs include unlimited software upgrades and updates, so users always have the latest software without unexpected fees.
