Dental Tribune U.S. Edition

Dental Tribune U.S. Edition | February 2012A14 iNdustry News Innovative company closing in on complete digital dentistry To improve and expand their services, both dentists and labs need to address den- tistry as a whole. 3Shape provides digital methods for improving efficiency through- out all phases of dental treatment, starting with the intra-oral impression scanned at the dentist’s clinic and continuing all the way to manufacturing. Dental System 2012™ contains many fea- tures specifically designed to enable labs to develop their business toward becom- ing service centers for dentists. As a central part of this strategy, 3Shape Dental System 2012™ provides work flows that reach into all areas of dentistry. 3Shape’s TRIOS® is a complete digital impression solution for dental clinics that enables dentists to capture the intra-oral situation directly, achieving huge benefits in relation to traditional analog impression taking. 3Shape TRIOS® includes intra-oral scanning, intelligent software and com- munication with the lab. Unique features include spray-free scanning, complete mo- tion and positioning freedom while scan- ning, instant impression validation and smart scan-edit tools. Digital workflow via 3Shape solutions 1. The dentist or the clinic’s secretary cre- ates the digital order using a form that is customized according to the specific lab’s requirements. The dentist easily scans the patient’s teeth, validates the digital impres- sion, and immediately sends the case to the lab while the patient is still in the chair. 2. Labs using Dental System™ can receive TRIOS® digital impression scans or third- party intra-oral scans (Sirona Cerec, iTero) from the dentist’s clinic directly into their TRIOS Inbox™ and immediately start the design process. 3.With3Shape’snewModelBuilder™,labs can use TRIOS® scans directly to design lab models, including implant models, either in-house or locally. The digital models are fully prepared for optimized manufactur- ing on 3D printers or milling machines. 4. Dental System’s™ Digital Temporaries feature enables labs to digitally design and produce Temporaries — directly from the pre-preparation scan and without pouring a gypsum model. 5. Labs can prepare esthetic Virtual Diag- nostic Wax-ups to send to the clinic for den- tist-patient previews before the patient’s teeth are even prepared. 6. 3Shape Communicate™ enables easy lab-dentist cooperation during all steps of the case. Approved designs can be reused when designing the final crown, saving time and ensuring esthetics. 7. 3Shape’s CAMbridge™ software auto- matically prepares digital designs for man- ufacturing, and Dental System™ supports essentiallyallmaterialsandmanufacturing equipment. Digitaltechnologiesarerapidlybecoming the standard in dental clinics, laboratories and manufacturing centers; and now the most advanced systems are supporting col- laboration and work flows between them. The industry’s potential winners will be those who join this efficient digital arena. 3Shape will be showcasing its products at the 2012 Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting, Feb. 23 - 25, in Booth No. 1644.
