Dentsply Sirona expands Digital Dentures possibilities

With the upcoming launch of inLab SW 18, Denstply Sirona inLab users will be able to mill Digital Dentures in-house.

Dentsply Sirona, The Dental Solutions Company®, today announced several strategic collaborations set to further enhance its Digital Denture solutions. Foremost, with the upcoming Q1 introduction of inLab® SW 18, inLab users will reportedly be able to mill Digital Dentures right in-house, while still having the option to outsource to AvaDent®. In addition, starting in Q1 of 2018, both DGShape Corporation and imes-icore have partnered with the Company to provide even more innovative Digital Denture solutions.

Specifically, labs that use inLab MC X5 milling units and/or DGSHAPE, imes-icore will reportedly be able to mill Dentsply Sirona Digital Dentures in-house after they are designed by AvaDent.  

“These collaborations are an exciting endeavor and completely synergistic with the Dentsply Sirona vision to deliver innovative dental solutions to improve oral health worldwide,” says Tom Leonardi, Dentsply Sirona group vice president, global prosthetics. “Together we will advance digital denture solutions in the dental lab market, bringing Dentsply Sirona’s market leadership in removable prosthetic materials and CAD/CAM solutions. All collaborations contribute substantially to creating real value for the dental laboratory, the dentist and, ultimately, the patient in the field of digital dentures. In this spirit, it is a pleasure to officially welcome DGSHAPE and imes-icore as our new partners in digital dentures. Both companies are a great complement to our product line, and I believe that these agreements greatly underscore our commitment as a leader in removable prosthetics.”
