Next generation in-house fabrication

With the Ceramill Mind and Ceramill Match 4.2 software, users are able to provide their customers with next generation in-house fabrication while significantly reducing costs. For example, the new software features allow titanium materials to be machined with the Ceramill Matik milling unit. The in-house fabrication of titanium-based implant-supported restorations is associated with external cost savings of up to 40 percent. The entire milling unit can therefore be financed in full by even a small number of cases. Another new feature is the innovative speedlining mode: with the aid of specifically developed tools, users of the Ceramill Matik, Ceramill Motion 3 and Ceramill Motion 2 can "cut-grind" hard block materials at full speed. Dental technicians thus benefit from almost 50 percent faster production while maintaining excellent restoration quality and reliability.

Implants without abutment

Another new feature is that the planning of dentures can now be performed directly on the implant and without abutments - regardless of whether single crowns, multi-part bars and bridges or full dental arches are involved. This innovative implant solution is the result of a cooperation between Amann Girrbach and Tri Dental Implants. With matrix, Tri Dental Implants has launched the first approved dental implant specifically designed for digital fabrication technologies such as CAD/CAM milling or 3D printers. With the matrix concept, Amann Girrbach now offers its customers a fully comprehensive CAD/CAM-compatible implant system in both a digital and validated workflow. Implant-based Zolid zirconia crowns can thus be produced in less than two hours in combination with the Therm DRS sintering furnace.

AI-supported design and nesting

In addition to the fully digital and validated Amann Girrbach workflow for printing implant models and laboratory analogs, the Upgrade also offers numerous other CAD/CAM functions. To give an example, these include the AI-assisted design of bridges using the "Instant Anatomic Morphing" feature or the implementation of the Smile Creator Report in PDF format. This allows patients to see the expected result in advance in a before-and-after comparison and to participate in the planning process if they so wish. In addition, the Upgrade also offers quick to perform quality checks with the aid of new nesting visualisation: this makes it possible to repeatedly check whether a restoration can be milled successfully. Additional process reliability can thus be created with just a single click. However, as the digitisation of production increases, so does the output of milling units and 3D printers. To stay on top of things, the Ceramill System now enables milled and printed restorations to be marked with notes.

One step closer to Amann Girrbach's vision

"With the Upgrade of our Ceramill Mind and Ceramill Match software to Version 4.2, we are yet again focusing on the core principles of in-house fabrication and by doing so, also on the vision of Amann Girrbach. We are delighted to have come a great deal closer to this vision now with the new features, improvements and functions," said Nikolaus Johannson, Head of the Global Business Unit Lab CAD/CAM at Amann Girrbach. The rollout of the Upgrade started at the end of June and will be implemented worldwide by the end of July. In parallel, Amann Girrbach will be offering users free online training.
