Sirona's inLab SW 4.2
The power of innovation from Sirona continues with its introduction of the new inLab SW 4.2 at this year's LMT LAB DAY Chicago. Come and see how features like virtual articulation, enhanced smile design and expanded in-house implant applications, just to name a few, continue to set you apart from your competition and improve your digital restorative offerings.
The virtual articulation feature of the new inLab SW 4.2 allows you to set your Bennett angle within a range of 5° to 25° and your Sagittal plane from 15° to 45°, etc. If no data is provided by your dentists, then simply use the average value settings, which still substantially improve the initial fit of your restorations compared to conventional CAD/CAM designs. This reduces your overall finishing time and the finishing time of your dentist-clients, and is particularly valuable for model-free cases through Sirona Connect.
Users of inLab software are already experiencing the benefits of...

During its CEREC® 27 and a Half event held in Las Vegas in October, Sirona celebrated the 10-year anniversary of its inLab CAD/CAM system. Participants explored an exhibit hall, attended presentations by inLab experts and had an opportunity to network with thousands of fellow CEREC dentists and laboratory owners.
"Every time Sirona throws an event, I am beyond impressed learning about the new advancements of this amazing technology," says Matt Roberts, CDT, Owner of CMR Dental Laboratory, Idaho Falls, ID. "Sirona just keeps making CAD/CAM more interesting, my job much easier and my dentists happier."
For more from the event, visit www.CEREConline.com or www.CEREC27live.com.
The Science section of the October 9th edition of The New York Times, "The Digital Doctor," profiled a number of high-tech tools in the healthcare field, including Sirona Dental's CEREC System.
In "A New Tooth, Made to Order in Under an Hour," writer Gina Kolata describes how her dentist used a chairside CEREC system to deliver a crown in one visit. "Maybe you think that dentists are stuck in the technological dark ages, waving pliers and babbling about fluoride," she says. "In truth, the profession has quietly embraced sophisticated technology..."
Saying that 10% of dentists use chairside CAD/CAM, the article also explains the benefits and limitations of the technology, its applications in implantology and how dentists can also access the technology through laboratories.
