KOBLACH, Austria: The Ceramill DRS Production Kit is part of the Ceramill Direct Restoration Solution (DRS) from Amann Girrbach. It allows dental professionals to provide their patients with fast and high-quality results. With the system, restorations for simple indications, such as crowns, inlays and onlays, can be fabricated in-house and placed in the patient’s mouth in the same session.

The production kit builds on the Ceramill DRS Connection Kit and consists of the Ceramill Motion DRS milling machine and the Ceramill Mind DRS design software. The intuitive CAD software allows dentists to design a crown directly chairside in three simple steps. The customisable blank library provides a very good overview of the blanks. Production is performed by a self-contained four-axis CNC machine. It features a touch display that guides the user through the process with illustrated work steps. Validated material partnerships and innovative milling strategies ensure that, for example, molar crowns can be fabricated from IPS e.max CAD (Ivoclar) in just 15 minutes. In addition, the Ceramill Motion DRS has a radio-frequency identification tool holder, an integrated camera, a blank scanner and its own computing unit.

“Dentists can decide on a case-by-case basis whether fabrication should be performed in the laboratory or in the dental practice. All relevant data, like scans, photographs and radiographs, can be shared with the laboratory at the touch of a button. Furthermore, it is possible to draw on the expertise of the dental technician at any time. The technician can, for example, check the quality of the intra-oral scan or the preparation while the patient is still chairside and check whether there is sufficient space for the restoration. In future, the restoration can also be designed in the laboratory if required, even if fabrication itself is performed in the dental practice. The comprehensive flexibility of the Ceramill DRS system opens up a completely new range of options for clinicians,” explained Elena Bleil, product manager of Amann Girrbach’s global business unit for clinical CAD/CAM.

The Ceramill DRS Production Kit can be supplemented with the Ceramill DRS High-Speed Zirconia Kit. More information can be found at
