Straumann launches new CADCAM dental restoration system

Straumann has launched its new CADCAM dental restoration system in Europe and North America which represents the latest component in the company's portfolio of cutting-edge digital solutions. The present launch comprises advanced scanning technology, new design software, an extended range of applications and an additional material - all designed to enhance workflow efficiency, precision, patient comfort and treatment outcome. The new system will subsequently be rolled out worldwide in coming months. Straumann believes that this is the most significant launch of extended functionality to date in CADCAM dentistry.


At the same time, Straumann also announced that it will use its CARES brand (Computer Aided REstorative Solutions) to cover - and further distinguish - its entire digital solutions range.

Straumann CARES Digital Solutions include state-of-the-art guided surgery, intra-oral scanning (using iTERO) and CADCAM prosthetics. According to the company, the main advantage lies in the fact that the complete package comes from a single provider and is designed for seamless connectivity to simplify workflows and link dental professionals across disciplines. All of the products have been subject to an intensive test program to help ensure reliability, simple handling and customer compliance.

"The future of dentistry is digital," said Franz Maier, Executive Vice President and Head of Global Sales at Straumann. "Without innovative, seamlessly-connected CADCAM systems, dental professionals will struggle to succeed in an increasingly competitive marketplace. Success also depends on collaboration and partnership, which is why we have involved customers and experts in our intensive premarket test programs. The very positive responses show that we are on the right track to being the partner of choice."

New Straumann CARES Scan CS2 scanner

The central hardware component in the Straumann CARES CADCAM system is a new in-lab scanner with a striking design and broad functionality. The additional functions offered by the CS2 include the ability to scan solid master models, section cuts and antagonist models. Using advanced 3D laser technology for accuracy and speed, it reduces scanning times to just 30 seconds for single dies and 3 minutes for master models.

In pre-market testing, customers have received the new scanner and software very positively, particularly the new 'morphing' capability, which automatically designs a fully restored tooth with inlays, onlays, veneers or partial crowns despite the fact that the original morphology of the tooth is missing.

A new level of support

Like every Straumann product, the new scanner is backed by Straumann's support service. Automatic, down-the-line software updates and tools have been a winning feature of Straumann scanners for several years. So too has an expert hotline support service. The new scanner brings a further dimension to customer support thanks to an integrated online camera that enables the Straumann CARES Support Center to understand and address individual customer difficulties very quickly.

New Straumann CARES Visual 6.0

To drive the new CADCAM system, Straumann has further developed its powerful CAD software, focusing on ease-of-use, connectivity and additional functionality. New features and functions include a new graphic user interface, an automatic prosthetic design feature, an advanced tool for individual design options and an expanded database library of teeth, pontics and connectors. There is also a '2D-slice' view with measuring function, which makes it possible to check important design parameters, such as prosthetic wall thickness.

The software connects with the Cadent iTero5 intraoral scanning technology, which means that dentists using iTero scanners can transfer oral scan data directly into the Straumann CARES CADCAM system for the tooth- or implant- borne restoration to be designed.

New prosthetic applications

To complement the existing CADCAM range of copings, crowns, bridges and customized abutments, Straumann has expanded its prosthetic applications to include full anatomic inlays and onlays, veneers, and implant-borne screw-retained bars and bridges.

Extended range of materials for all indications and requirements

Straumann offers a leading range of prosthetic materials to cover a wide selection of indications and to cater for individual requirements, preferences and budgets. The offering comprises polymers, metals, and modern high-performance ceramics, including super-aesthetic glass-ceramics. The latest addition is IPS Empress CAD from Ivoclar Vivadent.

The new Straumann CARES Scan CS2 Scanner and Straumann CARES Visual 6.0 will be available in early 2011 in Australia and New Zealand.
