DEXIS introduces AI-powered implant ecosystem for dental imaging

DEXIS has announced a new advancement to its implant dentistry workflows with the DEXIS digital ecosystem — an interconnected, AI-powered platform for digital implants combining CBCT, intraoral scanning, diagnostics, and treatment planning. The ecosystem is designed to empower clinicians to manage each step of an implant case, from diagnosis to delivery, with one integrated tool set.

With the prosthetic-driven implant ecosystem, users gain access to an open imaging platform, complete with diagnostics and treatment planning software, driven by AI and tailored specifically for implant workflows.

The user-friendly platform recognising the daily challenges of managing data, processes and expectations to allow clinicians to efficiently organise, analyse and plan cases while collaborating with team members and partners.

“I can complete each step of a clinical case from within one software — educating the patient, making a diagnosis, creating a treatment plan and gaining acceptance. My staff loves it because they do not have to pull up tons of different programs. It is all just very clear, clean and on the same page,” said Dr Katya Archambault, an oral and maxillofacial radiologist in La Jolla, California.

In late 2023, DEXIS launched the ORTHOPANTOMOGRAPH OP 3D LX, an advanced CBCT technology that enhances 3D diagnostic capabilities with flexible FOV options and short scan times, boosting diagnostic confidence and supporting an evolving practice.

“At DEXIS, our product development team worked with over 200 dentists and their teams to put the customer at the centre of our solutions,” said Brian Gooch, global product management and marketing vice-president at DEXIS. “With implant workflows, the DEXIS solution promotes diagnostic confidence and delivers productivity to the office. We are always in motion, driven by a profound commitment to innovate and improve our solutions for clinics striving for a more efficient way of working.”

After launching the OP 3D LX, DEXIS announced the release of an upgraded version of its intraoral scanning software, IS ScanFlow. Through guided workflows and the use of AI-powered tools, users can navigate complex scanning situations and consistently acquire accurate data. According to the company, an example of this is the new full arch workflow, which assists users in obtaining scan data for full-mouth rehabilitations, providing step-by-step guidance throughout the process.

“We have used the new full arch workflow. It is very easy to take the common scan with the provisional in place, remove and scan the provisional and then obtain a final scan of the soft tissue with scan bodies,” said Dr Robert Pauley, a practice owner in Union City, US.

DEXIS has also brought advancements to the core platform of its digital ecosystem, DTX Studio Clinic, an AI-driven diagnostic and treatment planning software. DTX Studio Clinic integrates with the DEXIS intraoral scanning solution, serving as the central hub for clinicians to manage all patient data and files. With a clear and reliable source of information for each case, DTX Studio Clinic assists with every step of the process, from dental imaging and diagnostics to treatment planning, manufacturing, and follow-up.

DTX Studio Clinic is said to prioritises high productivity and effective communication. Assisted Intelligence streamlines user’s diagnostics by preparing CBCT images, automatically annotating features like tooth positions and panoramic curves, and tracing the mandibular nerve canal to save on time and effort. Additionally, the automated merging of CBCT and optical scans creates a realistic 3D digital rendering of a patient’s dentition for accurate treatment planning.

Clinicians also have the freedom to customise their workflow, while ensuring that patients, labs, and staff have the visibility they need for a seamless experience. This is accomplished through a variety of tools and features, including:

  • AI-assisted case setup for chairside diagnostics and treatment planning
  • Dynamic view of images, findings and treatment plans all on one screen
  • Automatic merging of CBCT and intraoral scans
  • AI-powered powered tooth number recognition
  • AI-powered automated tooth setup
  • AI-powered focus area identification
  • Assisted mandibular nerve canal tracing
  • Assisted airway identification
  • Easy partner access to all digital files
  • Cross-practice access to all information from any computer
  • Virtual implant library
  • Surgical guide creation to 3D print in-house or for outsourcing
  • Dynamic surgery with X-Guide
