Straumann, a global leader in regenerative, restorative and replacement dentistry, and Cadent Inc., a leading provider of 3-D digital solutions for the orthodontic and dental industries, announced today that Straumann will be an official North American distributor of Cadent’s iTero Digital Impression System as of 1 February 2011.

Straumann recently announced new functionality to allow iTero customers to take implant-level impressions with the Straumann Intra-Oral Scan Body and digitally send them to the Straumann CARES Scan CS2 scanner. Now that Straumann will be selling the iTero Digital Impression System in the US, both companies have an even greater opportunity to deliver added value to GPs, dental labs and surgical specialists.

“We are proud to take our relationship with Cadent to another level,” said Martin Dymek, Regional Head North America, Straumann. “Digital impression taking is an integral part of Straumann CARES®Digital Solutions – which also includes the CARES Scan CS2 (CADCAM system) and Straumann Guided Surgery. This digital chain streamlines workflows: the seamless connectivity between iTero and the CS2 provides instantaneous delivery of impression data to the lab and elimination of model casting. As much as anything else, CARES Digital Solutions facilitates communication and collaboration between the GP, dental lab, and surgical specialist.”
