“We are excited to introduce our latest DEXIS intraoral scanning software update, aimed at boosting productivity for DEXIS software owners and implant workflows,” said Brian Gooch, vice-president of marketing at DEXIS. “We have made scanning fast and easy, even for more complex situations. Digital impression data is important for implant case planning, so we enable highly accurate data to be incorporated into chairside or open workflows, and easily shared with labs or colleagues.”

The IS ScanFlow software update aims to maintain high-speed scanning, user-friendly interface, precise data capture, and an open, flexible system. According to the company, early adopters of the software have provided positive feedback, highlighting the system’s ease of use and its ability to reliably capture accurate data.

The feedback also highlighted he wide range of cases which users are able to accurately capture data for. “The DEXIS IS 3800W intraoral scanner and its predecessors have enabled me to apply digital dentistry to all my prosthetic and implant cases,” said Dr Sebastian Patzelt. “Now, with the new AI applications in DEXIS IS ScanFlow, I am able to digitise the soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity for fixed, removable or implant cases accurately and efficiently.*”

IS ScanFlow v1.0.10 also aims to maximise productivity through AI-driven tools for dentists. The new release adds a brand-new AI Matching tool that simplifies data capture in complex situations like multiple scan bodies, full and partial edentulism.

It includes algorithm enhancements to its Implant Scan Body AI Assist tool which automatically detects scan bodies and reduces noise in the data, corrects artifacts and enhances details – furthering the automation of precise data capture.

Moreover, IS ScanFlow v 1.0.10 introduces guided dental workflows to cut manual tasks and simplify processes. Users now have the flexibility to fill out case information before initiating scanning or after completion, thanks to the new CaseFlow Manager tool. Regardless of the chosen option, users can then move into an easy, guided workflow that automates manual processes, predicts next steps, and assists in acquiring data for the selected indication.

The brand-new Full Arch Implant workflow guides users through the data-capture workflow for a full arch case and then automatically aligns the scans in occlusion, allowing for one consolidated dataset to send to a lab or manufacturer.

IS ScanFlow v 1.0.10 also facilitates efficient lab communication by enabling users to view case progress and real-time lab status updates directly within the Patient History screen. This allows collaboration, reduction in delays, and timely completion of tasks.

“The true power of IS ScanFlow is seen when paired with the core of the DEXIS implant ecosystem-DTX Studio Clinic,” said Gooch. “Packed with smart tools and advanced algorithms, DTX Studio Clinic serves as the clinic’s imaging homebase, diagnostic hub, and treatment planning navigator. It connects each step of the implant process together and now, when purchased with an intraoral scanner, comes at no extra cost.”

“Implant workflow productivity can be maximised by integrating IS ScanFlow into the rest of the tools and software within the DEXIS digital ecosystem — where practices can manage an entire implant case, from diagnosis to delivery, with one integrated toolset.”
