Sirona Dental Inc, Charlotte, NC, unveiled a number of new products at its recent CEREC® 30th (C30) Anniversary Celebration held in Las Vegas, including a number of new software innovations and its new TENEO and INTEGO treatment centers.
The new software offerings include ORTHO SW for orthodontic practices. Designed for use with the CEREC Omnicam digital impression camera, the software navigates the user through the scanning process while providing instructions as needed. ORTHO SW automatically generates a full color digital model of the arches and displays both hard and soft tissues in their natural shades, before immediately exporting the model out to the ortho lab for fabrication of retainers or clear aligners.
Sirona also introduced CEREC AF/AI tabletop units. CEREC AF (shown) is a powder-free version of the CEREC Omnicam, while CEREC AI integrates with Sirona-made treatment centers. CEREC AF/AI is fully compatible with Sirona Remote streaming software and centralizes patient files to increase efficiency.
Finally, the company’s new PatientActivator by FutureDontics offers CEREC doctors a new out-of-office patient engagement tool. Designed to boost the practice’s online presence and assist in key marketing campaigns, PatientActivator features automated email confirmation, microsite, eNewsletters, and video content.
Among the company’s hardware offerings introduced at C30 were the new TENEO and INTEGO treatment centers. The units are designed to integrate all components of digital dentistry into one unit, helping to streamline workflow and increase efficiency. In addition, working in partnership with Kappler, configurations can include the GENOVA, COMPONERA, ATHEN, and ATHEN LIGHT cabinetry units.
The units have been ergonomically designed for the doctor and assistant with dual positional work surfaces to reduce movement and fatigue, according to the company. The cabinetry provides increased accessibility to all instruments and consumables, promoting a clutter-free, simplified environment that is conducive to more efficient operatory procedures.
