Align Technology Inc, San Jose, Calif, has expanded chairside CAD/CAM workflow options for its iTero® intraoral scanner by announcing connectivity to San Diego’s IOS Technologies Inc, a subsidiary of Glidewell Laboratories of Newport Beach, Calif. This new workflow provides a broader spectrum of available CAD/CAM options to users who want to offer in-office, same-day crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers.

The IOS FastDesign™ system includes the FastDesign CAD software and the TS150™ in-office milling machine. iTero users who implement the IOS FastDesign system will now have the option to mill same-day restorations in the office. Glidewell Laboratories, an iTero partner since 2007, has processed more than 71,000 iTero scan files for fabrication of more than 100,000 restorations.

iTero and IOS Technologies-certified connectivity and digital workflow is now available for iTero scanners in North America.
