At the IDS Sirona will present a software program for dentists who provide orthodontic treatments: CEREC users will be able to use the software to create digital impressions for orthodontic indications. This includes esthetic corrections to malocclusion as well as medically necessary treatments.
CEREC for orthodontics – this has never been available in this form until now. At the IDS 2015, Sirona will introduce a groundbreaking new software package, CEREC Ortho. It enables orthodontists and dentists who provide orthodontic treatments to create a digital model of the entire mandibular arch in one reliable, guided scan using CEREC Omnicam. The procedure is simple and quick to carry out. Acoustic signals, images, and brief explanations assist users with the camera work. Since the scan results are so highly reproducible, the process can even be easily delegated. The impression created in this way can then be sent for planning orthodontic treatments and producing the required appliances, such as Clear Aligners.
It is supported by CEREC and makes the creation of impressions considerably simpler which results in significant time savings, so treatment can begin sooner. The laborious process of creating, sending and storing silicone impressions and plaster models can be avoided, and patients do not have to wait so long for their orthodontic appliances. If a physical model is needed for certain indications, it can easily be produced with a 3D printer.
"With the CEREC Ortho software, we are developing a completely new treatment field for our customers", says Roddy MacLeod, Vice President Dental CAD/CAM Systems at Sirona. "It is also very beneficial for practices from a financial point of view."
The new software for orthodontic indications is one more product of Sirona's extensive experience in the field of digitalizing treatment workflows. In this way, the company demonstrates its reliability as a partner for dentists – and now for orthodontists too.
