Biomet 3i offers latest in digital dentistry


Implant manufacturer Biomet 3i and CAD/CAM scanning technology company Renishaw have announced a collaboration to offer comprehensive digital solutions to dental professionals and patients worldwide.

Building on its portfolio of patient specific CAD/CAM restorative products, Biomet 3i is expanding the boundaries of a traditional "dental implant" company by providing a series of innovative digital solutions from which laboratories, clinicians and patients can benefit. For Renishaw, which supplies precision engineering products to sectors as diverse as aerospace and neurosurgery, it represents the opportunity to spread its expertise in dental manufacturing to a wider global audience.

The digital solutions offered by Biomet 3i and Renishaw include:

  • 3i incise Copings and Frameworks;
  • Renishaw contact scanners;
  • 3i incise CAD software; and
  • Renishaw in-lab milling machines

Using the Renishaw scanner and 3i incise CAD software, laboratories can obtain broader access to a wide range of dental milling options, including the ability to scan precision copy milled bar patterns. Laboratories utilizing the ProceraForte Scanner can also benefit from all of these options by using the 3i incise CAD software.

Clinicians can now offer patients 3i incise Copings and Frameworks in Zirconia and soon Cobalt Chrome and precision copy milled bars. These options are patient specific and designed to result in beautifully crafted new smiles.

"We feel that this partnership will provide our mutual dental customers with unsurpassed access to the latest in digital dentistry technology." said Maggie Anderson, president of Biomet 3i.

Sir David McMurtry, Chairman and Chief Executive of Renishaw agreed, adding "Renishaw is thrilled to be combining its innovative engineering and CAD/CAM capabilities with Biomet 3i's renowned clinical excellence and international sales and marketing expertise".
