Experience digital workflow and single-visit dentistry from Amann Girrbach at IDS 2023
KOBLACH, Austria/COLOGNE, Germany: “Connect To The (Work-)Flow” is Amann Girrbach’s motto for presenting modern digital processes in the world of dentistry at the 2023 International Dental Show (IDS). Dental professionals can expect to see this motto articulated across the company’s 640 m2 of exhibition at the trade fair, in addition to a number of other exciting innovations and proven product highlights. The complete digital workflow across the entire process chain for restorations will be tangibly experienced live on-site.
“As the ‘One & Open (Work-)Flow’ company, we want visitors to appreciate how much we can all benefit from digitisation in dental technology. Our aim is to connect holistically—through analogue and digital steps, together with dentists and dental technicians—to ultimately make everyday routines easier for everyone involved,” explained Dr Wolfgang Reim, CEO of Amann Girrbach. With innovations such as the AG.Live cloud platform and the Ceramill Direct Restoration Solution (DRS) system for chairside applications, the company is consistent in pursuing digitisation. All new and existing Amann Girrbach products are connected to AG.Live, thus bridging interdisciplinary divides between laboratories and dental practices with the aid of convenient digital technologies. “We enable users in dental practices and laboratories to do something that they cannot achieve using a single product. We deliver an open, yet validated overall system made up of innovative components and thus ensure significant gains in productivity as well as reproducible restorations of the highest quality,” Reim said.
Ceramill DRS for single-visit dentistry
The Ceramill DRS system represents a milestone for interdisciplinary cooperation between dentists and dental technicians and for the chairside workflow. Reim said that linking the Ceramill DRS system to AG.Live facilitates improved communication and collaboration, enabling dental technicians and dentists to work together as a successful and future-oriented team and to share information easily.
He continued: “Furthermore, the offer of single-visit dentistry is made considerably easier with this solution. Our Ceramill DRS Production Kit+ is ideal for upgrading an existing intra-oral scanner to a complete chairside system, whereby the user not only receives the Ceramill Motion milling machine and the user-friendly Ceramill Mind DRS planning tool, but also the software for linking to the AG.Live workflow management platform. Our Ceramill Mind DRS intra-oral scanner, which is part of the basic Ceramill DRS Connection Kit package, can be used for scanning, although existing intra-oral scanners are also compatible.”
Revolutionary Zolid Bion zirconia and Ceramill Matik full-service unit
In addition to the digital workflow, Amann Girrbach will be showcasing classic products and novelties at its stand. Product highlights will include the Ceramill Matik, which is the first full-service unit to combine three machines. In addition to the actual five-axis wet and dry processing station, the Ceramill Matik performs the functions of a fully automated stock management system and cleans itself.
In terms of novel materials, the focus is on zirconia: the innovative Zolid Bion is based on a material that is revolutionising the field of all-ceramic materials made of zirconia. Reim pointed out that Zolid Bion represents an unprecedented combination of aesthetics and safety, raising the bar to a completely new level. “As the first material in its class, Zolid Bion is also ideally suited for high-speed sintering without compromise, opening up new workflows in the laboratory. It is clearly the rising star among zirconia! Anyone who thought that development in this field had already been exhausted can now look forward to a material that is unrivalled,” Reim pointed out.
Dental professionals who would like to gain insights into these digital processes, the new product highlights or the proven classics are warmly invited to visit the Amann Girrbach booth (#C040–D041) in Hall 1.2. There, dental professionals will have the opportunity to experience all of the benefits of the full digital dental workflow live.
