CEREC Optispray for Fast and Accurate Digital Impressions and Quality CAD/CAM Restorations
CHARLOTTE, NC – October 29, 2008 – Sirona Dental Systems, LLC (Nasdaq: SIRO), the company that pioneered digital impressions more than 20 years ago and the world’s leading producer of dental CAD/CAM systems, recently introduced CEREC® Optispray, an advanced contrast medium in a convenient spray canister to enable easier and more precise optical impressions and, ultimately, the most esthetic and functional CAD/CAM-produced dental restorations possible.
“The use of a contrast medium has been providing CEREC users with highly accurate digital impressions that require a minimal number of scans for more than 20 years,” said Sirona Dental Systems, LLC USA President, Michael Augins. “Optispray simplifies this proven process and takes it to the next level.”
According to Dr. Sameer Puri of Tarzana, CA, “Eliminating the need for compressed air lines and clog-prone nozzles to deliver the contrast medium is a major breakthrough. Because the CEREC user is untethered, maneuverability is greatly improved for more accurate impressions – even for the most hard-to-reach posterior areas.”
Optispray was specially developed by Sirona’s in-house R&D department for use with the CEREC dental CAD/CAM system, and provides the following unique benefits:
• Consistency – Consistently easy, fast, and accurate application.
• Precision – Thanks to its thin, homogeneous contrast layer, Optispray delivers superior digital
• Ergonomic – Spray head can be turned or angled to the desired position, depending on application (mandible/maxilla).
• Patient Experience – Patients will appreciate Optispray’s pleasant spearmint scent and taste.
Preliminary reviews of Optispray have been very positive. According to Dr. Adamo Notarantonio of Huntington, NY, “As a CEREC owner, I have used all of the powdering devices on the market and I can honestly say, Optispray gives me the most consistent images, and is by far the easiest to use as well."
CEREC Optispray comes in 50ml canisters, including two application nozzles, has a two-year shelf life and is available exclusively through Patterson Dental Supply. For more information, call your local Patterson sales representative or visit www.cereconline.com.
