3Shape Releases Implant Studio® 2016

New version features improved speed, performance and ease-of-use


3Shape announces the release of Implant Studio® 2016 software for dental practices and labs. The digital implant planning and surgical guide solution makes implant procedures simpler and more predictable. The new 2016 version adds improved speed, performance and ease-of-use.

Implant Studio® 2016 features include:

  • Improved productivity with faster loading speeds – up to four times faster loading of CT scans and implant libraries
  • Enhanced ease-of-use with fast access to preferred implant libraries marked as favourites
  • Increased predictability by adding rotation marks to drill guides to indicate correct implant rotation during placement

Implant Studio creates a simplified and predictable top-down digital workflow for implant procedures. It enables the digital planning of single to complex implant procedures by considering the aesthetics and intended final restoration, as well as the overall clinical situation. Professionals can also use Implant Studio to cost-effectively create, print and mill their own surgical drill guides.

Dr. Philip Tan, dentist from Australia, says, “Implant Studio 2016 improves on its already intuitive workflow by adding exciting new features as well as speeding up the entire implant procedure.”

Implant Studio is unique in that it merges surface scans and CBCT (or CT) scans to provide a best-in-class plan based on virtual tooth set-ups and prosthetic driven implant planning. Delivering digital insight that enables dental professionals to consider all aspects of the implant treatment, including vertical dimensions, the restorative platform and available soft tissue.

For the restorative design and production workflow steps, Implant Studio data is fully integrated with 3Shape dental lab CAD/CAM design solution, Dental System™. And to create a totally digital implant procedure, professionals can input scan data directly from, for example, 3Shape TRIOS® intraoral scanner to Implant Studio.

Implant Studio 2016 is available in the EU, USA and several other countries. Please contact your 3Shape reseller to learn more about availability in your country.
