New Innovations from Carestream Dental Enhance Workflow in the OMS Practice
LAS VEGAS—Carestream Dental’s newest intraoral scanner, the CS 3600, is designed with oral and maxillofacial surgeons in mind, with an implant-borne restorative workflow, fast scanning to save on chair time and an open system for easy sharing of files.
The implant-borne restorative workflow of the CS 3600 is designed specifically for handling implant scanning, supported abutments and scan bodies. A dual scan mode allows the user to scan the same implant region of interest twice—once with the scan body in place and one without—to capture more precise data. Also, the scanner’s software allows for split-screen viewing for side-by-side comparison of the digital impressions with and without the scan bodies/abutments in place.
“The CS 3600’s implant workflow makes it easier than ever for oral and maxillofacial surgeons to adopt an intraoral scanner into their practice,” Gary Salman, U.S. director of oral and maxillofacial surgery, Carestream Dental, said. “The scanner allows for easy custom healing abutments, surgical guides and orthognathic digital models, so oral surgeons can perform faster, more accurate treatment.”
The CS 3600 also features high-speed continuous scanning to significantly reduce the time it takes to acquire a digital impression. Unsteady hands or fidgeting patients have no impact on successive views; users simply continue to scan in a smooth motion. Continuous scanning contributes to faster, easier dual arch acquisition and, ultimately, more accurate digital impressions.
Because the CS 3600 is part of an open system, it is compatible with other open implant planning and surgical guide software programs. Open .STL files also make it easier to quickly share data with referrals and labs. Collaborating on implants is also simplified— a digital impression can be taken at the OMS practice; the case is submitted digitally to a lab; and the final restoration can be sent directly to the referring GP. This also means the patient doesn’t have to make multiple trips between the surgeon and dentist.
The CS 3600 also features an Intelligent Matching System that “auto-locates” holes in the dataset that need to be filled in while scanning. The scanner comes with a normal and a side-oriented tip; the tips are rounded, interchangeable and autoclavable so users can capture scans in hard-to-reach areas while considering patient comfort and safety. Stunning full HD 3D color impressions make for easier diagnosis and enhanced communication with patients, referrals and labs. The CS 3600 is not connected to a trolley or proprietary computer and is easy to carry from operatory to operatory.
Attendees at AAOMS will also have the opportunity to preview the newly redesigned electronic medical record (EMR) module for CS WinOMS practice management software. The reengineered module minimizes training by making almost every component of the patient’s record available within one click. Users will also notice a sleek, modernized interface which makes it easier and faster to navigate the module.
CS WinOMS users can also take a closer look at eConnections, a single sign-on solution that helps oral surgeons manage, market and grow their practices with appointment reminders, online scheduling, online brand management including ratings and reviews, local search engine optimization, online directories, ROI tracking, and call recording and analysis into one robust, easy-to-manage software solution.
