The development of new products has today reached a new level of dynamism: The challenge lies in simplifying traditional treatment workflows while at the same time improving the quality of treatment.
This can be achieved by innovative technologies, the optimal interplay of individual components and open and transparent communication between all of the participants involved - dentists, dental technicians and patients. As the world's largest manufacturer of dental solutions, Dentsply Sirona has been inspired by the needs of customers and will provide more innovative answers to the current issues in dentistry.
Digital workflows now routine
Digital technology is now a matter of course in many practices and laboratories, where it provides more safety in daily workflows. Dentsply Sirona is a company that is instrumental in promoting this and will introduce solutions at the upcoming IDS 2019 in Cologne, Germany that will change dentistry significantly.
New technologies and their linkages make it possible for innovative diagnostic and therapeutic aids to be available to both specialists and general practitioners. This will make the very latest in dentistry routine and is thus easy to implement - for anyone, at any time and anywhere.
SureSmile Aligners, for instance, are a clear aligner solution that now also provides general practitioners with the opportunity to offer patients more treatment options and different price models with one versatile platform. Start with a digital impression, take a 2D or 3D image, upload patient photos, approve the treatment plan and have aligners produced - done. An interactive diagnostic tool registers the digital treatment plan to the patient photo to ensure an ideal smile design.
In dental labs, the challenge is to further optimise the digital infrastructure and to develop materials that satisfy the very highest requirements in terms of aesthetics and handling.
When looking at conventional treatments such as fillings, implants and endo treatments, it can be seen that in the past, innovations have frequently made workflows more complex and therefore more time consuming. Dentsply Sirona has listened to the requests of dentists and patients and has used new approaches to ensure that standard treatment steps have been simplified considerably and that better outcomes can be achieved.
"Dentsply Sirona will surprise and certainly fascinate visitors at the IDS. Our goal is to offer dental professionals the products and workflows that support them in their practice and lab routine," said Don Casey, CEO of Dentsply Sirona. "They need to be certain that products and their application are clinically safe at all times and require little effort. Revolutionary changes often lie in the details."
Dentsply Sirona is in Halls 10.2 and 11.2 at the IDS from March 12 to 16, 2019.
