Digital solutions lead the way into the dental practice

With its new Ceramill Direct Restoration Solution (DRS), Amann Girrbach is extending its integrated digital workflow to the dentist, thus closing the existing communication gap between the dental practice and the laboratory. In this process, both partners contribute their core competencies to provide patients with definitive and functional dentures even more quickly and less complicated - smaller units are also possible on the same day, depending on the local distance between the two partners.

Depending on the type of collaboration desired, three team workflows are available in combination with the corresponding Ceramill DRS Kits. The central basis of these workflows is the new AG.Live digital platform, which offers both an infrastructure and patient case management at a realizable consistency and efficiency previously unattainable. It takes the flow of information and work between the practice and the laboratory to an entirely new level.

Virtual platform AG.Live creates freedom, more efficient processes and greater customer proximity

With AG.Live, Amann Girrbach launched the largest digitisation offensive in the company’s history. This web-based portal for collaboration between laboratories and dentists offers perfect digital services at all levels. To give an example, AG.Live as a central tool for digital case management, a networking, infrastructure and material management, support and knowledge database will gradually replace the previous C3 customer portal.

On the one hand, the platform networks machines and materials in the laboratory, thereby simplifying processes and increasing quality and reproducibility. The biggest advance, however, is providing the link in a growing global network of digitally operating dental professionals. This bridges the interdisciplinary gap between dentists and dental technicians and facilitates future-oriented cooperation. In this network of optimised and new partnerships, the participants can focus on their strengths and better position themselves on the market.

Extending the digital Ceramill CAD/CAM workflow to the dentist

The Ceramill DRS Connection Kit acts as the basic and entry-level variant, with which dentists and laboratories can already take full advantage of digitisation. It consists of the intraoral scanner, the Ceramill Map DRS, the associated scan software and the connection to AG.Live. Any order data including all the required information can therefore be shared seamlessly and in real time with the laboratory. This eliminates the need for handwritten job sheets and conventional impressions. All that is necessary is a single physical transport: getting the restoration to the practice for insertion in the patient’s mouth, even on the same day in case of simple restorations. This leads to a better dental experience for the patient and ultimately attracts new patients to the practice and generates more orders for the laboratory.

And if the preferred material is zirconia, the High-Speed Zirconia Kit, consisting of the Zolid DRS high-speed sintering zirconia and a corresponding Ceramill Therm DRS sintering furnace, can optimally support the laboratory here in fabricating straightforward zirconia restorations on the same day.

To provide patients with dentures even quicker in a further step, the system can be expanded in the dental practice with the Ceramill DRS Production Kit at a later stage. This allows simple restorations to be fabricated in the practice and placed in the patient’s mouth in a single session.
