Sirona launches Cerec Connect in U.K.

Sirona Dental Systems is now marketing the Cerec Connect digital impression system in the U.K. and other international markets.

The Cerec Connect software converts image data from the digital intraoral camera Cerec Bluecam into a virtual model. The dentist then fills out the order form on the screen and sends the data directly to the dental laboratory via the Cerec Connect Internet platform during the patient consultation. The dentist and dental technician can consult with one another on-screen about the virtual 3D model during the patient consultation, thus gaining valuable time, according to Sirona.

"Large numbers of clinical results from testing in practice prove convincingly the precision and easy handling of Cerec Connect," said Bart Doedens, director of CAD/CAM systems at Sirona, in a press release. "Clinical studies with double-blind tests prove that dentists prefer restorations manufactured with the digital procedure in more than 85% of cases."

All indications, from single-tooth restorations to small bridges, can be produced with Cerec Connect, the company said.
