BENSHEIM, Germany and SALZBURG, Austria, March 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
As announced at the IDS 2015, CEREC Omnicam and the new CEREC Ortho Software can be used to submit digital impressions for Invisalign® clear aligner therapy.
"We are delighted to offer CEREC Omnicam customers the ability to submit digital impressions to the Invisalign® system. After 30 years of leading dentistry into a digital era, Sirona's focus has expanded to orthodontics. Today's announcement is another example of our strategy to provide best-in-class products and customer support, as we integrate the market leader in clear aligner treatment into CEREC," highlights Jeffrey T. Slovin, President and CEO of Sirona. "With the seamless digital model submission to the Invisalign® Doctor's Site, we show our dedication to providing truly integrated systems that make dentistry better, safer and more efficient and improve the patient experience."
The new CEREC Ortho SW 1.1 features a patent-pending guided scanning process and connects CEREC with Invisalign® treatment. CEREC is the most frequently used system for digital impressions, and no other system is used more often for chairside restorations - it is safe, reliable and scientifically proven.
Digital models created from CEREC Omnicam intraoral data are transferred to Align Technology and used as part of the record submission for an Invisalign® treatment. This eliminates the process of creating and sending physical impressions, which results in faster processing of the case. Patients may benefit from the earlier start of the therapy and the digital impression-taking instead of conventional impression material.
The new software, exclusive for CEREC Omnicam systems, will be available in selected markets by summer 2015.
