exocad releases ChairsideCAD 3.1 Rijeka with many new features for single-visit dentistry

exocad, an Align Technology company and a dental CAD/CAM software provider, has released ChairsideCAD 3.1 Rijeka, the latest version of its CAD software for single-visit restorations. The release features a new tool to easily customise tooth abrasion in real time and gives clinicians the ability to reuse anatomical designs for multiple restorations. This helps save valuable time along the patient journey when creating clip-on smiles for patient engagement, temporaries, and final restorations.

“Clinicians who want to increase patient excitement and accelerate treatment time will love ChairsideCAD 3.1 Rijeka,” said Novica Savic, CCO at exocad. “The improved guided workflows and enhanced ease of use greatly simplify the transition from an analog to a digital approach.”

The new release focuses on ease of use for clinicians who have limited time and want high-quality results. Improved case management with a guided workflow and new 3D scan previews offers clearer steps to final restorations.

With ChairsideCAD 3.1 Rijeka, users can now create three-quarter/overlay crown designs and design restorations on stock abutments. To engage patients more and increase treatment commitment, instant in-face visualisation is now available in the Smile Creator add-on module. The Smile Window now provides real-time visualisation of the results throughout the design process.

Further highlights include:

  • iTero NIRI (near-infrared imaging) and intraoral camera images are now automatically incorporated via the iTero-exocad Connector when designing restorations, making it possible to visualise the internal and external tooth structure and optimise the process of margin line tracing
  • Upgraded full-function articulator including new “in-skull” articulator allows users to consider dynamic occlusion when designing any restoration with occlusion
  • During anatomic free-forming, the affected parts of the design are visualised, showing the affected parts highlighted in green
  • New built-in screenshot management tools make it possible to collect, edit, and tag screenshots for improved communication and documentation

In 2022, for the fourth year in a row, ChairsideCAD was selected for the Cellerant Best of Class Technology Award.

ChairsideCAD 3.1 Rijeka is now available in select markets. ChairsideCAD 3.1 Rijeka is an essential part of the Align Digital Platform, an integrated suite of proprietary technologies and services delivered as a seamless end-to-end solution to customers. exocad names its releases after current EU “European Capitals of Culture” and selected the city of Rijeka in Croatia for the current release cycle.
