ATLANTA—Carestream Dental and Core3dcentres® have announced that Core3dcentres has been recognized as a Complete Solutions Partner for Carestream Dental in North America.
Core3dcentres has undergone a rigorous training process to help CS Connect — a hosted web-based platform that enables the transmission of digital impression data — dental laboratories take maximum advantage of Carestream Dental’s CAD/CAM solutions, making their workflow intuitive and efficient, while building their business.
First, practitioners use either one of several Carestream Dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) units or the CS 3500 intraoral scanner to create digital impressions. With a CBCT unit, conventional impressions are scanned to create 3D models, or, the intraoral scanner can be used to capture true color, high-resolution 3D digital images of patients’ teeth.
Once the STL files have been submitted to a laboratory, two different workflows are possible depending on the laboratory’s digital capabilities, both based on the original scans taken by the practitioner with Carestream Dental scanning solutions. If the laboratory prefers to do its own case design, Core3dcentres can assist with fast model printing, eliminating the need for expensive in-laboratory model printing capabilities. In workflow option 2, Core3dcentres also can design the case for the laboratory and then print and return the models. The laboratory can choose to mill the case itself or have Core3dcentres do it for them with either workflow option.
According to a press release, both Carestream Dental and Core3dcentres are very excited by this partnership as it opens up new opportunities for the dental industry and reinforces both companies’ commitment to using the best technologies, materials, and processes available in the market today.
