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

Dentsply Sirona is announcing its latest upgrade for both Connect and CEREC Software giving users both new and improved functionalities, and even better performance[1]. Patient communication is also improved with a new visualization step in the model phase. New firmware makes the intraoral scanner twice as fast, provides a higher-performing scanning experience and gives users access to new workflows and even better usability*.

Charlotte/Bensheim, August 25, 2021. The latest upgrade of the Connect and CEREC Software, 5.2, and an improved firmware provide Primescan and CEREC users with additional options for making treatment more efficient, faster, and more convenient with digital workflows. Primescan intraoral scanner’s latest enhancements optimize performance and improve usability 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 again easier to scan successfully even for relatively inexperienced users*.

CEREC Software 5.2: New features and benefits

Important, user-friendly changes and enhancements have been introduced in CEREC Software 5.2. In addition to general quality improvements, CEREC Primemill users can benefit from the availability of Fast Milling mode 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 very detailed restorations.

On top of viewing the model directly without restoration selected to facilitate communication with patients, the entire CEREC Guide workflow has also undergone improvements. The mode "Full Range Dynamic Occlusion" 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*. Chairside dentistry therefore takes another step forward with the CEREC Software 5.2.

Primescan: validated for Atlantis Suprastructures

The software enhancement also opens new 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 esthetic 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, customized impression tray can now be performed with Primescan. This regularly offers the patient a more comfortable start into 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 4” or “all on 6” cases, depending on the individual case. This means a new indication for practitioners working with Connect Software.

“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.”
