3Shape’s coming Dental System™ 2013

Due for release later in the year, Dental System™ 2013 represents the market’s most complete system for dental CAD/CAM. With the recent addition of new indications and workflows, 3Shape’s Dental System™ is now the first CAD/CAM system to cover all the major dental indications – bringing the era of full digital labs closer than ever before. Some of the coming features are:

  • Denture Design, including the Gingiva Creation tool, transforms a widespread and technique- demanding dental indication into a fast and easy digital workflow.
  • Implant planning and drill guides, brings together implant planning, prosthetics, and drill guide design to open a new service that labs can offer to dentists.
  • The RealView Engine™,lets technicians visualize the complete oral situation in realistic shades while they work.
  • Post and Core, allows users to design all layers in a single workflow, starting with the anatomy for optimally shaping the Post and Core components. 
  • Secondary Telescopic Crowns, enables technicians to meet any clinical case by designing both primary and secondary constructions together.
  • Advanced implant cases including fully-digital implant bridges, Integrated design of secondary bar framework, angled implant screw holes and design of 2-piece abutments as two customized parts.

Design and manufacture orthodontic appliances digitally
3Shape now brings the market a unique and long-awaited CAD software solution for orthodontics that allows labs to provide complete orthodontic services.

“The new Appliance Designer™ is the first CAD program that digitally creates all types of orthodontic appliances, says Henrik Vestermark, Vice-President of Business Development for North America. “Appliance designs are made ready for manufacturing using 3D-driven machines and materials. Labs can now provide highly competitive night-guards, retainers, customized bands, splits, and more, by taking advantage of our CAD/CAM technologies.”

TRIOS® impression-taking — strengthens professional lab-dentist relationships

3Shape will also be showcasing its TRIOS® digital-impression solution, including a wide range of new features. TRIOS® enables dentists to rapidly capture the complete intraoral situation and send the 3D model directly to the lab. Unlike many other scanners, 3Shape’s TRIOS does not require pre-spraying of the teeth. The system clinically validates the impression and includes flexible tools allowing dentists to edit their scans, and even ‘delete-a nd-rescan’ specific areas where needed.
