Inline Medical and Dental has announced a strategic partnership between Owandy (the manufacturers of the Imax Touch OPG and CBCT Systems) and Materialise Dental (the developers of Simplant 3D software). Simplant is used by implant practices, oral and maxillofacial surgeons and orthodontists worldwide and is the leader in its field. Owandy will now pre-install SimPlant Pro on every I-Max Touch CBCT system, thereby providing customers with the best 3D imaging solution on the dental market.

Materialise Dental focuses on 3D Digital Dentistry, offering a range of solutions for computer guided dentistry and has developed a market leading position in this field. Its SimPlant software is compatible with all implant brands and CT and cone-beam 3D scanners, thus providing clinicians the opportunity to stay with their own implant brands and scanning equipment. Owandy has a strong international presence providing a full range of digital dental imaging products and is renowned locally for their popular IMAX range of panoramic systems.

The newly released IMAX Touch 3D is the evolution of the Imax Touch 2D, which is well respected by practitioners with over 1000 units installed internationally over the past 2 years. Aside from a refined design, elegance, user friendliness, image quality and reliability, the Imax Touch 3D offers the best adapted volume (90 mm x 80 mm) for dental use. The I-Max Touch 3D acquires 3D exams and complete panoramic exams in seconds and has a cephalometric option which further extends the capabilities of the system. Direct access to SimPlant from the IMAX Touch 3D provides customers with a unique 'all in one' solution that also includes professional software training.

Mike Harman, Managing Director at Inline said "The partnership between Materialise Dental and Owandy gives us the opportunity to offer customers a ready-to-use, superior and integrated imaging, diagnosis and planning solutions for any patient case. The price point of the IMAX Touch 3D is unique and the inclusion of the SimPlant makes it even more attractive as it ensures optimal results. We are convinced that the alliance between the high performance of the I-Max Touch 3D with the most renowned 3D implant planning software, will give full satisfaction to our customers and our users".

The technology platform of SimPlant combines all the CT scanning information before the procedure and takes out all the guesswork. Dentists are able to get all of the important and correct information from the CT scan data and then propose multiple treatment plans if required. With SimPlant, scanned data can be manipulated in axial, cross sectional and panoramic view to assess the volume and quality of bone so you know where the best place is for your implants. Using SimPlant ensures that you won't perforate of damage tissue eliminating the complications associated with implant dentistry.

Materialise Dental leads the market in computer guided implant dentistry. The SimPlant technology has been around for nearly two decades and provides a fully integrated implant treatment planning tool. SimPlant has been designed to be user friendly and easy to work with. It guides dental professionals step by step during their implant planning process and allows them to plan an implant case with ease and confidence.
