Following the successful market launch of inLab Software 15.0 in 2015, Dentsply Sirona managed to deliver the first update to the software before the end of 2016. inLab CAD SW 16.0 offers new features across all CAD modules.
In the Removable dental prosthesis module, dental splints and individual impression trays can now be designed for the first time using the new inLab Splint plugin.
The Implantology module has been extended to include screw-retained bridges and dental bars at implant level, thus allowing the FLO-S Scanbodies from Atlantis® to be scanned and identified with inEos X5 and inLab SW 16.0. This year, it will soon be possible to transmit the scan data to Atlantis for the design and production of suprastructures. Coinciding with the introduction of this software, infiniDent, Dentsply Sirona's production centre, is launching a new production service for directly screw-retained bridges that have been independently designed by the customer using inLab CAD SW 16.0. The corresponding design dataset can be exported directly from the inLab software to infiniDent for subsequent production. The Atlantis and infiniDent services will has already been launched as a beta phase for selected customers to trial. After successful completion, it will then be available for all inEos X5 users. For the production of individual adhesive abutments (TiBase), the following implant systems are also supported by inLab SW 16.0: Astra Tech Implant System EV and Ankylos from Dentsply Sirona Implants as well as BioHorizons and Osstem TS.
For production of restorations on other milling units, STL data export via the inLab software interface module is required. In addition to the actual STL dataset, the additional *.sci file (Sirona case information) is also created. This supplements the STL data with additional information, such as implant positions, preparation margins, information on materials, etc.
As the only laboratory software on the market with J.O.B.S. (Jaw Orientated Biogeneric Setting), inLab supports rapid patient-specific positioning of teeth with minimal corrections, even for work over long spans. The inLab CAD SW 16.0 is now extending this convenience with a new function: inLab Check. The new plugin tests the designed restorations with a FEM analysis for critical, strain-sensitive areas and visualises these areas. The tool offers inLab users practical design support for large, complex cases or where space is constricted.
The inLab CAD SW 16.0 now runs under both the Windows 7 and Windows 10 operating systems. Furthermore, it comes with numerous optimisations in terms of processing power, tools and design options, like screw channel design, additional tooth shapes for the restoration design (for example a third premolar in tight spaces) or the implant-independent tooth position in the design of implant bridges.
In addition, the current inLab CAM Software 16.0 update for the inLab MC X5 and inLab MC XL production units is available free of charge as an automatic update or internet download.
