Software enhancements support a higher level of performance for Primescan and CEREC Primemill

Dentsply Sirona has announced its latest upgrade for both Connect and CEREC Software, giving users new functionalities and even better performance*.

The latest upgrade of the Connect and CEREC Software and improved firmware provides Primescan and CEREC users with additional options for making treatment faster, more efficient and convenient with digital workflows. Primescan intraoral scanner’s latest enhancements optimise performance as described as follows: Through its enhanced firmware, Primescan captures up to 1.5 million 3D data points per second. With these enhancements, Primescan is significantly smoother and twice as fast, making it easier to scan successfully even for relatively inexperienced users*.

Primescan: Validated for Atlantis Suprastructures

The upgrade also opens up even more digital possibilities for users around edentulous scanning. Based on the validation of the Atlantis IO FLO-S scanbody, Primescan is now the first and only intraoral scanner validated for a full digital workflow for full-arch fixed implant restorations with Atlantis suprastructures – a workflow for implant supported restorations that requires a high level of accuracy. The suprastructures are ordered by the dental technician from Dentsply Sirona’s Atlantis design and manufacturing sites around the globe.

“Usually, Primescan for Atlantis Suprastructures not only reduces chair time and simplifies collaboration with my laboratory, but also increases the level of aesthetic predictability and a very good fit,” said Dr Carlos Repullo, a beta tester practicing in Spain.

Additionally, primary impression taking within the Digital Denture workflow to create an individual, customised impression tray can now be performed with Primescan. This regularly offers the patient a more comfortable start to the manufacturing process of their prosthesis.

Connect SW 5.2 now supports bridges on implants

This Connect software update brings new possibilities to the implant workflows. Due to Primescan’s very high level of accuracy, dentists can now perform long-span implant supported bridges, for example “all on four” or “all on six” cases, depending on the individual case. This means a new indication for practitioners working with Connect Software.

CEREC Software 5.2: New features and benefits

Importantly, user-friendly changes and enhancements have also been introduced in CEREC Software 5.2. On top of being able to view the model directly without restoration selected to facilitate communication with patients, the entire CEREC Guide workflow has undergone improvements.

A Full Range Dynamic Occlusion mode was introduced for the articulation calculation. This includes a wider range of lower jaw movement in the calculations and thus helps to detect more functional occlusal interferences*.

CEREC Primemill users can benefit from the software upgrade as well. Fast mode is now available for crowns made of IPS e.max® CAD (Ivoclar Vivadent). Additionally, posterior and anterior crowns, direct screw-retained crowns, inlays and veneers can now regularly be produced using the Extra Fine grinding mode to create very smooth and detailed restorations. Chairside dentistry therefore takes another step forward with the CEREC Software 5.2.

“Primescan firmware enhancements make the digital workflow even faster and easier than before*,” explained Dr Alexander Voelcker, group vice-president of Global Digital Solutions Marketing at Dentsply Sirona. “In addition to significantly increased speed, the smoothness of the scan has also been improved*. For clinicians working with Primescan in their practice, these improvements regularly mean more efficient workflows, even greater reliability and, at the same time, a very comfortable patient experience.”
