Carestream Dental, Atlanta, recently unveiled a number of new products and updates at the International Dental Show, taking place in Cologne, Germany.
They announced the pre-launch of CS ScanFlow software, which is designed to redefine the company’s intraoral scanning portfolio and provide users with a new workflow. According to the company, users will be able to navigate freely among different workflows from a single scan and process datasets quickly and more accurately. CS ScanFlow features a simplified user interface which was developed for touchscreen navigation. In addition, the new software will provide mesh refinement options such as the addition of a base for printing and model cleaning tools; will allow for one-click export directly from the software; and will enhance the capture of challenging data with Hybrid Scanning restorative and implant-bone restorative workflows. Moreover, current CS 3600 intraoral scanner users who are enrolled in CS Advantage will receive a complimentary upgrade to the new platform.
Meanwhile, CS Model+, the company’s modeling software that automatically segments, sets up, analyzes, and presents digital models, has been updated to further redefine the orthodontic workflow. CS Model+ version 3.0 features semi-automatic margin detection that eliminates the need to manually segment unidentified teeth. According to the company, the update also includes new and improved setup options for both manual and aligner modes that are designed to save time and a completely redesigned manual mode that provides even more options for refinement.
The company also announced the newest addition to its intraoral scanning portfolio, the CS 3700. This new scanner, designed in collaboration with Studio F. A. Porsche, features ergonomic curves and a sleek style, according to a press release from the company. It will be available in Arctic White and Carbon Grey to give doctors an esthetic option for their practice. The CS 3700 will include a number of exclusive advanced software features, including smart shade matching that will provide automatic selection and recording of the patient’s tooth shade.
And the company introduced the CS 9600, its newest CBCT system. The five-in-one unit combines 2D panoramic imaging, CBCT scanning, 3D model/impression scanning and 3D facial scanning, and can also be upgraded to include cephalometric imaging. It is also available in three editions featuring multiple fields of view. The CS 9600 is available with CS Advantage, the company’s service package which includes the exclusive CS UpStream program which monitors the system’s operations to prevent downtime and maximize system availability.
