Dentsply Sirona will showcase its full end-to-end digital solution

Dentsply Sirona is excited to be able to showcase its full end-to-end digital solution at this year’s BDIA Dental Showcase. Knowing that the BDIA Dental Showcase is one of the key events in the dental calendar, and keen to demonstrate to the industry the latest digital technology, Dentsply Sirona will be demonstrating its full end-to-end digital solution on every step of the treatment pathway.

Like Dentsply Sirona, BDIA Dental Showcase caters to the whole profession and is an opportunity for dental professionals to see the latest innovations and improvements in all areas of dentistry and to hear from the brightest leaders and recognised experts in the industry.

It’s the best place to come for new ideas, to try out the latest products and technology and to reignite passion in modern dentistry and the possibilities it is opening up.

It starts with an accurate picture

It’s hard to fix something if you can’t see it clearly or accurately. Dentsply Sirona’s imaging and scanning solutions give clinicians unprecedented clarity and accuracy in the representations of their patients’ teeth, in awesome 3D detail.

The Orthophos XG 3D X-ray unit, for instance, combines the advantages of both 2D and 3D imaging into one unit at the lowest possible effective dose of radiation. The unprecedented 360° detail enables diagnosis across a range of disciplines, including dental implants and endodontics.

The Cerec Omnicam intraoral scanner for digital impressions delivers powder-free scanning which is fast and ‘guided’, which means that no detail is missed. The sleek and lightweight wand and easy handling makes scanning easy, intuitive and ergonomic. The detail is captured in 3D full-colour video with innovative tooth shade technology and the ability to clearly differentiate between preparation margin and gingiva.

In both cases, digital image data is seamlessly imported into the Cerec CAD/CAM software for design.

Bespoke design and intuitive treatment planning

After analysing the image data, the Cerec software generates its own treatment proposals for restorations or orthodontic appliances, providing a useful starting point for the design which can then be tailored for each case using the intuitive user interface. For implants, both surface scan and X-ray can be combined to enable the clinician to design the restoration and implant placement in tandem, with the additional option of generating surgical guides.

Cerec Ortho offers similarly sophisticated design options and proposals for orthodontic treatment, and once the treatment planning is complete, the clinician can export or send the case with a single click to orthodontic partners such as Invisalign and ClearCorrect.

3D Endo Software from Dentsply Sirona also facilitates the easy location of root canals in a tooth for planning endodontic treatment in 3D. It allows the clinician to easily locate and mark the entrances to the root canals and track the canals inside and then choose the correct files for the treatment which they can virtually trial on the marked-out canals.

Same-day restorative dentistry

Once the design is finalised, Cerec in-practice grinding and milling units like the inLab MC XL can deliver extremely precise milled restorations with smooth surfaces and the finest details rendered by their fine, precise tools. Whether it’s wet grinding or wet or dry milling, Cerec always has the optimal solution, and depending on the indication and the material, the Cerec milling unit can mill a typical single-tooth restoration in four to 12 minutes. This has made same-day dentistry a reality for many dental practices, satisfying the increasing demand for it amongst their patients.

Instant connectivity with third party partners

Sirona Connect, the CAD/CAM software for practices, enables clinicians to access the full Dentsply Sirona digital end-to-end solution starting with scan and/or X-ray data, onward into design and then to a choice of in-house or third-party options, including abutments and restorative superstructures, orthodontic appliances, endodontic treatment plans and much more.

All of this advanced technology and software will be on show at this year’s Showcase and our knowledgeable consultants will be able to take you through the whole end-to-end solution and answer any questions you might have. There will also be many moneysaving offers available so it’s the perfect opportunity to find out more and pick up some exclusive deals.
