CEREC meets Invisalign®: Sirona Expands its Orthodontic Product Line to Include Invisalign Digital Impression Submission
Two powerful players in the dental industry are set to engage in a new cooperation: As announced at the IDS 2015, the CEREC Omnicam and the new CEREC Ortho Software can be used to submit digital impressions for Invisalign® clear aligner therapy.
Jeffrey T. Slovin, President and CEO of Sirona believes that CEREC meets Invisalign® will take the digitization of the workflow of dental practitioners in the field of orthodontics one step further.
Bensheim. "We are delighted to offer our CEREC Omnicam customers the ability to submit their digital impressions to the Invisalign® system. After 30 years of leading dentistry into a digital era, Sirona's focus has expanded to orthodontic treatment. Today's announcement is another example of our strategy to provide best-in-class products and customer support, as we integrate the market leader in clear aligner treatment into the CEREC world", highlights Jeffrey T. Slovin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sirona. "With the seamless digital model submission to the Invisalign® Doctor's Site, we once again show our dedication to providing our customers with truly integrated systems that make dentistry better, safer and more efficient and improve the patient experience. We believe that this strategy combined with our continuous innovation will drive penetration of digital dentistry and will deliver increasing value to our important customer base and patients around the globe.”
The new CEREC Ortho SW 1.1 features a patent-pending guided scanning process and connects the CEREC world with Invisalign® treatment by allowing seamless digital impression submission. CEREC is already the most frequently used system for digital impressions, and no other system is used more often for chairside restorations – this solution is not only safe and reliable but also scientifically proven. The orthodontic treatment can be planned in the Invisalign® treatment process using the digital impression data.
CEREC Ortho Software: Easy, fast and comfortable
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 eliminates 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.
CEREC’s proven digital impressioning system provides a safe and reliable step into the process for general practitioners and orthodontic specialists alike. 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.
