Company expands its portfolio and ecosystem through new digital end-to-end workflows and launches the IS 3800 wired intraoral scanner.
DEXIS IOS Solutions is expanding its digital dentistry offerings with new end-to-end workflows and is also launching the IS 3800 wired scanner, which offers the same high-speed performance as the company’s IS 3800W intraoral scanner.
The company has announced the expansion of its portfolio and ecosystem through new digital end-to-end workflows designed to align with the objective of DEXIS IOS Solutions to support dental practitioners in accelerating their workflow, resulting in increased productivity and improved patient experience. DEXIS IOS Solutions is focused on 3 crucial principles: ease of use, productivity, and practice expansion.
DEXIS is part of Envista’s global family of dental brands and this latest software expansion is designed to allow practitioners to easily expand their range of services through aligner and denture treatments as well as in-house printing, offering their patients personalized and innovative care. The new prescriptive workflows are being developed concurrently with ongoing innovations in the broader Envista™ portfolio, beginning with a new orthodontic workflow in combination with Ormco Spark™ that enables practices to easily add aligner therapy to their treatment options.
A new Patient Engagement application within IS ScanFlow enables practitioners to show patients a simulated outcome of their orthodontic treatment, enabling them to visualize the treatment outcome chairside. Integrated digital transfer of the datasets to Ormco Spark streamlines the process, enabling patients to promptly initiate treatment, the company states.
"By further integrating DEXIS IOS Solutions into the broader Envista offerings, we are providing dentists with the solutions they need to provide exceptional and personalized care for their patients. We are committed to helping dental practitioners improve patient outcomes and grow their practice through digital innovation," says Amir Aghdaei, president and CEO at Envista Holdings Corporation.
DEXIS IOS Solutions has also collaborated with SprintRay™ 3D printing ecosystem for definitive ceramic crowns, to simplify in-office printing and make same-day restorations a reality. SprintRay Cloud Design leverages artificial intelligence (AI) to streamline the design of crowns, appliances, and surgical guides within minutes. Practitioners can scan the patient with any DEXIS intraoral scanner and upload the dataset directly from either DTX Studio™ Clinic or IS ScanFlow to the SprintRay portal, eliminating the need to manually select files, enter redundant patient information and design the restoration or appliance.
By combining DEXIS intraoral scanners with SprintRay's ecosystem, dental practitioners can offer same-day delivery of crowns and appliances, increasing their productivity by completing more procedures in a shorter amount of time, according to Aghdaei. "Offering same-day restorations can give practitioners a distinct competitive advantage, as patients often prefer the convenience of single-visit appointments, enabling dental practitioners to expand their services and attract patients seeking fast and convenient dental treatment," he adds.
To further enhance the capabilities of the DEXIS IOS Solutions portfolio, IS ScanFlow v1.0.9 now includes a denture scanning workflow that streamlines the treatment planning process by combining the capture of the bite registration and prosthetic along with the edentulous and denture scans, eliminating the manual process of matching and aligning data sets by the lab. The software also provides embedded scan tips to optimize and simplify the edentulous data acquisition.
Additionally, the company is introducing the IS 3800 wired scanner, described as highly ergonomic and weighing just 190g without the cable, making it one of the lightest intraoral scanners available. It complements the IS 3800W wireless scanner, which weighs only 240g and is considered the lightest wireless intraoral scanner in the industry.
These latest enhancements are said to provide dental practitioners with access to intuitive technology that simplifies and streamlines treatment, thereby boosting productivity. With an extended ecosystem and diverse range of new treatment options, practitioners can partner with Envista for access to prescriptive end-to-end workflows or opt for more open workflows, which enable collaboration with their preferred lab or manufacturer. The new workflows further align with the Envista intention to digitize, personalize, and democratize dental care, enabling productivity and predictability of dental practitioners to provide optimal patient treatment.
