Carestream Dental is always looking for ways to give clinicians more options when it comes to orthodontic workflows. That’s why it’s pleased to announce that scans from the CS 3600 intraoral scanner are now accepted for use with Orchestrate Orthodontic Technologies.
“In the rapidly changing orthodontic business environment, it is important that offices have options for manufacturing in-house aligner appliances.” Matthew Hendrickson, orthodontic director, Carestream Dental, said. “We are excited to offer our clients another certified option to adapt to the exciting market changes taking place.”
The process begins with a digital impression from the CS 3600. The scanner is ideal for orthodontic cases, as its high-speed continuous scanning facilitates the capture of dual arches. An Intelligent Matching System enables users to fill in any missing information in the data set, and the CS 3600’s three interchangeable tips—normal, side-oriented and posterior—make scanning in hard-to-reach places easier. Clinicians can then choose to send the open .STL files to Orchestrate for treatment planning and 3D printing; plan the treatment and have Orchestrate 3D print models for aligners or other appliances; or plan and 3D print the case completely in-office.
“There is no question that 3D printing is rapidly changing the field of orthodontics.” Todd Ehrler, D.D.S., founder, Orchestrate Orthodontic Technologies, said. “The Orchestrate 3D treatment planning software and 3D printing solutions provide the practitioner with turn-key solutions to in-source aligner therapy and other orthodontic appliances. Our host of products, services and comprehensive training allow the practice to quickly integrate orthodontic-specific 3D printing technology and software. Since 2012, Orchestrate 3D has helped doctors in 15 countries dramatically lower costs and increase clinical control in their practices.”
