COPENHAGEN, Denmark/CHARLOTTE, N.C., US: Dentsply Sirona and 3Shape have recently expanded their partnership to provide seamless and secure integration of Dentsply Sirona’s Connect Case Center with 3Shape’s Dental System software. Users who upgrade to Dental System 2021.2 software can now connect to the Dentsply Sirona Connect Case Center to receive intra-oral scans from the company’s intra-oral scanners, Primescan and Omnicam.

“I always want to give a patient the treatment I feel is best for them. When companies like Dentsply Sirona and 3Shape choose to work together, it gives all dentists and lab owners more opportunities, and that means better outcomes for our patients,” Dr Alan Jurim, owner of integratedDENTAL, a dental practice in New York, said in a press release.

As a result of this agreement, 3Shape Dental System users will no longer need to download cases via the Connect Case Center platform or any other channel in order to receive cases from Dentsply Sirona intra-oral scanners. Instead, they will be able to receive these digital impressions directly in their 3Shape Communicate account after updating their system to Dental System 2021.2. This will allow them to receive both 3Shape TRIOS and Dentsply Sirona intra-oral scanner cases in the same inbox, 3Shape noted.

According to Dentsply Sirona, integrated hardware and software will help dentists to efficiently plan and execute even highly complex treatments and will simplify digital workflows. This, in turn, will improve the relationship between dentists and laboratories.

“Digital impressions facilitate communication. After scanning I can discuss the digital model directly with my patient. And because I now can communicate with the lab technician seamlessly, I can share the planned outcome with my patient much quicker—and that is a benefit to the patient that matters,” Dr Sabrina Hoffmann, a dentist in Bürstadt in Germany, commented in the same press release. “What we are experiencing today is truly the dentistry of the future,” she added.

Last June, both companies announced an agreement aimed at improving digital dentistry and oral health, intending to support the dental community through the evolution of efficient, simplified, and digitally-oriented workflows for dentists and dental technicians. Users of 3Shape’s TRIOS intra-oral scanner already have access to Dentsply Sirona’s SureSmile clear aligners platform, and the companies are now working on further expanding customer access to a range of technological choices.
