Ormco Corp, Orange, Calif, announced TruRoot data integration for Insignia™. According to a press release, Ormco’s proprietary TruRoot process combines cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) data and intraoral scanner or impression data for improved accuracy in the representation of patient anatomy in the Approver software. The incorporation of TruRoot technology provides users with better visualization and prediction of root and tooth movement, allowing for better treatment planning.

For doctors that do not submit CBCT data with their Insignia cases, Insignia has added to its existing root library by extending the roots to provide doctors with a full simulation of the entire root position. According to the company, displaying long roots will provide doctors with a more complete picture of the patient’s anatomy, enabling them to determine better treatment plans from the start of the case.

The latest Insignia upgrade also includes improved Approver functionality, giving doctors more control over macro changes within the Approver software and allowing doctors to preview jig design before approving their cases.

Ormco also announced that Insignia cases can now be submitted with Align Technology’s iTero Element, Carestream Dental’s CS 3600, and 3Shape desktop scanners, in addition to previously accepted scanners.
