Sirona has expanded to include orthodontic treatment. The company now offers its CEREC Omnicam customers the ability to submit their digital impressions to the Invisalign® system.
With the seamless digital model submission to the Invisalign® Doctor's Site, Sirona aims to provide customers with truly integrated systems that make dentistry better, safer and more efficient and improve the patient experience.
The new CEREC Ortho SW 1.1 features a patent-pending guided scanning process and connects the CEREC world with Invisalign® treatment by reportedly allowing seamless digital impression submission.The orthodontic treatment can be planned in the Invisalign® treatment process using the digital impression data.
Digital models created from CEREC Omnicam intraoral data are transferred to Align Technology and used as part of the record submission for an Invisalign® treatment. This is said to eliminate the laborious process of creating and sending physical impressions, which results in faster processing of the case. Patients may benefit from the earlier start of the therapy and the digital impression taking instead of conventional impression material.
The required new software, exclusive for CEREC Omnicam systems, will be available in selected markets by summer 2015. Existing users should contact their representatives for availability.
