Today, CEREC is far more than just a process for the chair-side manufacturing of ceramic restorations. Integrated software modules give users access to numerous additional application areas, such as implantology and orthodontics. All three fields can be experienced and explored live at the IDS 2015.
CEREC in 2015 can look back at 30 years of clinical applications and millions of successful interventions for various indications. Restorations completed with the CEREC process have set the gold standard for years. In clinical tests, CEREC has also proven its performance capabilities many times over – more than 250 clinical studies, including long-term studies conducted over 18 years, confirm the high survival rate of CEREC restorations. In short, the CEREC system is a success story – one that is far from its final chapter of development. The range of possible applications continues to grow.
Get to know CEREC
Under the tagline “Restorations and More”, Sirona invites visitors to their IDS 2015 exhibition stand to take a look up close at the CEREC process and see for themselves the system’s user-friendliness and the quality of the automatically produced occlusal surfaces. Sirona will also demonstrate live treatments and show typical CEREC treatment procedures using real cases. Along with “traditional” restorations and an additional, entirely new process in the orthodontics field, integrated implantology will also be demonstrated, in which dentists can plan implants chair-side that take into account both surgical and prosthetic factors. Here, recommended prostheses are combined with 3D x-ray data. The result can be safely transferred to the patient using a surgical guide. This surgical guide can be produced either in the dentist’s practice laboratory using the CEREC milling unit, or centrally.
For restorations as well, CEREC shows its mettle: naturally, impressions are taken digitally. In addition, CEREC is the first-ever chair-side system that can grind and mill restorations. This is particularly advantageous with today’s popular zirconium oxide, as milled zirconium oxide restorations have more stable edges than other materials. When it comes to grinding, the latest CEREC software also makes use of improved algorithms that ensure smoother surfaces and finer fissures in the processing of feldspar, glass and silicate ceramics.
Live treatments at the IDS
Patients will receive live treatment with CEREC restorations continuously on every day of the IDS trade show, allowing interested dentists to view the entire treatment process from the digital impression to the design, grinding and fitting. They can also observe and try out the advantages CEREC offers for implantation and orthodontic treatment workflows.
Interested dentists can view CEREC’s performance via live treatments on show at the IDS 2015.
