DENTSPLY Implants recently announced an expansion into the area of digital dentistry with intraoral scanning services for ATLANTIS abutments, a new business development designed to provide dental clinics and dental laboratories with an improved digital workflow.

This new development was made possible through an agreement with Align Technology, Inc., paving the way for an interface where ATLANTIS patient-specific abutments can be ordered based upon scans from the iTero intraoral scanner. Intraoral scanning for ATLANTIS abutments will allow the dental laboratory to provide a complete patient-specific restorative solution to the clinician, based on a digital impression. The added value reportedly includes cost savings, more precise impressions, increased patient well-being and expedited treatment processes. The launch is planned for the second half of 2014.
