Endo Meets 3D

Dentsply Sirona announces the introduction of another integrated solution to the market: a new 3D imaging software to improve the planning and workflow of endodontic procedures.

With the help of 3D x-ray images from an ORTHOPHOS SL, endodontic treatments can be planned and optimised in the 3D Endo software.

Another innovation in endodontics, 3D Endo is the first CBCT-based software that enables endodontic treatments to be pre-planned and optimised on the basis of imaging data from ORTHOPHOS units. This new advancement is the first software project to combine the know-how and experience of Dentsply Sirona’s market-leading engineers, scientists and software developers in both its endodontic and digital radiography units.

Based on 3D data and its specific visualisation, the user is able to case-specifically recognise the demands of the canal, analyse its natural shape and select the appropriate files using the integrated file database. As a result, endodontic treatment is more efficient and safer. It also significantly improves patient communication through the planning report or demonstrative capabilities integrated in the software, as it enables the user to clearly explain the initial situation and appropriate treatment to the patient.

For years, Dentsply Sirona has been collaborating and creating integrated solutions in endodontics. In 2014, WAVEONE® by Maillefer and RECIPROC® by VDW, both leading reciprocal file systems, were first integrated into TENEO treatment centres and more recently into SINIUS centres, which considerably improved the workflow of the Endo function. Now, with new 3D Endo software, a more comprehensive integrated approach to endodontics will be available.

“Dentsply Sirona is working to shape the future of endodontics worldwide by continuously striving for better patient outcomes and by empowering dental professionals with world-class innovative solutions, educational programmes and clinical procedures. This new software is yet another way in which our platform will redefine endodontic care by setting new treatment standards in efficacy, safety and simplicity,” says Ms. Dominique Legros, Group Vice President, Dentsply Sirona Endodontics.

“Using our new software in combination with our ORTHOPHOS units will provide practitioners the best image quality at the lowest dose and significantly improve their endodontic workflow. By working collaboratively with the endodontics team, we were able to best identify and address an unmet need and develop an easy-to-use, integrated solution for our customers,” says Dr. Stefan Hehn, Group Vice President, Dentsply Sirona Imaging.

Plans are underway to introduce this software in the coming months upon receiving necessary regulatory approval.
