The new software features more indications and functions.
The success of a CAD/CAM workflow in the dental laboratory is essentially a software question. The software should cover a wide spectrum of indications and functions and simultaneously work in a user-friendly way. These are the characteristics that will prove the value of the latest inLab SW 18.0 update across the board.
The previous model design has been improved, so that now full-arch models with removable dies and models with implant analogs can be constructed, including a separate gingival mask for any kind of model. Different articulator systems can be put in and the model can be marked individually. The completed model data for production can be provided with a 3D printer or in central production via the optional STL interface.
In the area of implant restorative solutions, inLab is the first program to offer the option to design multilayer gingival bridges for the production of highly esthetic, directly attached implants with a gingival section. The structure with the gingival section can be separated from the veneer structure for production from different materials, and the veneer structure can be processed as one piece, split into individual crowns, or made from a combination of the two depending on the esthetic goal.
A special feature of the current inLab SW is the new “1:1 Copy Mode.” Using this additional copy function, all geometries of a restoration can be copied exactly in accordance with the original and transferred – ideally for large bridges and implants with a gingival section, when, for instance, any adjustments to long-term temporary solutions are transferred into the final restoration. This saves dental technicians time and they can take over any attachment geometries 1:1.
“We have significantly expanded and upgraded the inLab SW 18.0 especially where it can efficiently support the dental laboratory and where it guarantees more ease of use,” summarizes Jörg Haselbauer, Product Manager for CAD/CAM Laboratory Software at Dentsply Sirona. “This pertains to gingival elements for bridges and for choosing original attachment geometries for slide attachments. Additionally, the revised administration phase now offers the user – in a clearly organized overview on a screen – an intelligent tool for quickly and accurately positioning and managing restorations and flexible adjustment options during the design phase.”
Lab-to-lab workflow with Dentsply Sirona
For the first time, an inLab laboratory can transfer scan or restoration data quickly and safely to another inLab laboratory and receive it back again via the Sirona Connect Portal to make optimal use of construction and production capacities, for example. This new function also simplifies access to the patient-specific solutions from Atlantis directly from the inLab SW – for the design and manufacture of implant abutments and suprastructures by Dentsply Sirona.
Inclusive inLab CAM software update
The inLab SW 18.0 update includes the inLab CAD SW 18 and the inLab CAM SW 18.0. The new CAM software supports the inLab MC X5 and inLab MC XL production units with optimized workflows. The new archiving function, the option to reuse material, a simplified pin tool, and other improvements in the details boost efficiency and safety when using machines on a daily basis. The new tool status display reliably informs the user about the status of the tool’s wear and tear when using validated materials. Additional materials from Dentsply Sirona and others are also integrated and validated in inLab CAM, such as Cercon ht, Cercon xt, Lucitone 199, Wax Disc, Multilayer PMMA, Shaded PMMA, Burnout PMMA Disc and Celtra Duo.
Digital Denture Milling
The Lab SBU is pleased to announce that the inLab MC X5 milling machine has been cleared for launch-supporting the milling of digital dentures. The inLab MC X5 has been a dependable solution for producing bonded dentures using the Lucitone 199 digital denture disc, Portrait IPN denture teeth, and HIPA as a bonding system. This unit is part of the Dentsply Sirona Digital Denture system (equipment and materials) and has been qualified to be compatible with denture workflows using the engineered by AvaDent design engine.
