Year-Long DENTSPLY/Sirona Merger Offers End to End Solutions for Better, Safer, and Faster Care

Posted on February 28, 2017

Bensheim/Salzburg - Only one year since the merger of DENTSPLY and Sirona, the Company is offering end to end solutions brought together through enabling technologies and procedural solutions for better, safer, and faster care. 

According to Michael Augins, Group Senior Vice President for the United States Commercial Organization, "It is a major challenge to unite two successful companies, to form one global team and to create a single entity that brings out the best of both of its predecessors. But our combination has given us new perspectives and has created myriad opportunities for both the company and our customers.“

New product launches for thorough dental care

At the Chicago Midwinter Meeting 2017, Dentsply Sirona presented a new integrated preventive care concept. This summer, the Cavitron built-in ultrasonic scaler will be available with the Intego line of Treatment Centers for fast and effective removal of the most stubborn calculus. The Intego and Intego pro Ambidextrous models are available in the US and offer modern dental practice everything necessary for professional dental hygiene, dental aesthetics and dental care.

Proper dental care starts with a safe diagnosis. Dentsply Sirona offers innovative imaging systems with new user-friendly applications. In Chicago, the Company showed its Orthophos SL with 3D I-X Imaging for the first time. This enables acquiring 3D information at the same dose level as 2D Images, which is appropriate for a large number of clinical indications.

Leveraging expertise to create innovative products and solutions

The CEREC Zirconia Workflow, launched by Dentsply Sirona at the Midwinter Meeting in Chicago just last year, enables dentists to make and deploy full zirconium restorations in only single visit. A sintering furnace was developed with the CEREC SpeedFire: The sintering process for a crown takes less than 15 minutes to complete. To make CEREC Zirconia easier to use for dentists, Dentsply Sirona combined all the components that are needed for a seamless workflow into a starter kit: the Celtra Duo blocks, the new CEREC SpeedGlaze glaze spray and the new cement Calibra Universal – an ideal set-up for customers. A current survey involving 300 dentists in the USA showed that 70% of practitioners are aware that CEREC now also allows all-zirconium restorations to be made in only one session.

Another demonstration of the technological advances of this merger is the new 3D Endo Software. It is the first CBCT-based software with which complex endodontic cases can be planned. In combination with Orthophos 3D devices and the integrated file database, treatments can be simulated and optimized. Various typical questions asked by endodontics specialists can now be answered with much more certainty thanks to the new software.
