Sirona Introduces inLab® Software 4.0
New inLab® Software 4.0 Delivers Improved Power and Performance
to the Entire Restorative Process
Charlotte, NC (May 23, 2012) – Sirona Dental Systems, the company that pioneered digital dentistry more than 27 years ago and the world’s leading producer of dental CAD/CAM systems, has launched a major software upgrade that effortlessly handles everything from single-unit crowns to complete smile makeovers with the touch of a button.
According to Norbert Ulmer, Director of Laboratory CAD/CAM for Sirona, “The new inLab® Software 4.0 is the most significant and sophisticated inLab software release. It propels the inLab system to new heights with outstanding new features designed for faster and easier navigation through design steps and work direct-on-tooth tools. This is a major redesign of the inLab software platform.”
Matt Roberts, CDT with CMR Dental Lab, states, “inLab Software 4.0 is a game-changer for digital dentistry. It’s now even easier to artistically modify the design to fit the specific aesthetic and functional needs associated with each case!”
Among the many enhancements made possible with inLab Software 4.0 are the following:
· Intuitive Graphical Interface – The inLab software guides you confidently through the design process. See exactly what step you’re working on, what’s next and what you’ve already accomplished. Readily “jump” from one design step to the next – or even go back a step or two – without having to “undo” the work you’ve already done.
· Multiple Restoration Design – Work on as many different restorations and indications as you want and at the same time – including in multiple quadrants and opposing arches, from single units to full-mouth cases.
· Design Tools for Total Control – Design tools can now be executed directly on the tooth when performing functions such as adding or removing material, rotating or positioning the restoration, or expanding or reducing tooth size. Grab and move the tooth, and use your digital porcelain brush to design your crown. This provides greater control and a more natural, hands-on feel to the computer design process.
· Widest Range of Indications – Your software capabilities are as endless as this list, such as anatomically shaped copings and bridges, to full-contour crowns, inlays, onlays, veneers, digital temporaries, multilayer/split-file designs, Maryland bridges, customized abutments, model-building software, bars, attachments, stressbreakers, stack milling, digital cutbacks, diagnostic wax-ups, and wax patterns, and there is always another software update just around the corner.
The increased productivity and efficiency delivered by inLab Software 4.0 is a bottom-line booster, as well. Chad Rogers has been an inLab user for nearly a decade, and was also among the first to use inLab Software 4.0. “For me, Sirona has made dental CAD/CAM more predictable and profitable than ever,” he said. “With the introduction of the new inLab Software 4.0 coupled with the inEos® Blue and the inLab MC XL, my laboratory is quickly changing and becoming a profitable machine.”
Moreover, Sirona Connect takes the digital process even further by providing a reliable conduit between the dental office and laboratory. Dental professionals utilizing Sirona Digital Impressions acquire an image intraorally and then send the digital impression to the Sirona inLab laboratory in real time. The time needed for pouring impressions is gone and the lab can design and mill the restoration before the patient has even left the dentist’s office. The dentist and lab can then discuss the case while the patient is still in the chair, creating better communication and superior results.
