CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Dentsply Sirona has announced its latest upgrade for Connect and Cerec software, designed to give users new and improved functionalities. Patient communication is also improved with a new visualization step in the model phase. New firmware makes the intraoral scanner twice as fast, provides a higher-performing scanning experience and gives users access to new workflows and even better usability.

The latest upgrade of the Connect and Cerec Software, 5.2, and an improved firmware, provide Primescan and Cerec users with additional options for making treatment more efficient, faster and more convenient with digital workflows. Primescan intraoral scanner’s latest enhancements optimize performance and improve usability. Through its enhanced firmware, Primescan captures up to 1.5 million 3D data points per second.

Cerec Software 5.2: New features and benefits

User-friendly changes and enhancements have been introduced in Cerec Software 5.2. In addition to general quality improvements, Cerec Primemill users can benefit from the availability of Fast Milling mode for crowns made of IPS e.max CAD (Ivoclar Vivadent). Additionally, posterior and anterior crowns, direct screw-retained crowns, inlays and veneers can now regularly be produced using the Extra Fine grinding mode to create smooth and detailed restorations.

On top of viewing the model directly without restoration selected to facilitate communication with patients, the entire Cerec Guide workflow has also undergone improvements. The mode "Full Range Dynamic Occlusion" was introduced for the articulation calculation. This includes a wider range of lower jaw movement in the calculations and helps to detect more functional occlusal interferences.

Primescan: Validated for Atlantis suprastructures

Based on the validation of the Atlantis IO FLO-S scanbody, Primescan is validated for a full digital workflow for full-arch fixed implant restorations with Atlantis suprastructures—a workflow for implant-supported restorations that requires a high level of accuracy.

The suprastructures are ordered by the dental technician from Dentsply Sirona's Atlantis design and manufacturing sites around the globe.

“Usually, Primescan for Atlantis Suprastructures not only reduces chair time and simplifies collaboration with my laboratory, but also increases the level of aesthetic predictability and a very good fit,” said Dr. Carlos Repullo, a beta tester practicing in Spain.

Additionally, primary impression taking within the Digital Denture workflow to create an individual, customized impression tray can now be performed with Primescan. 

Connect SW 5.2 now supports bridges on implants

Dentists can now perform long span implant supported bridges, for example “all on 4” or “all on 6” cases, depending on the individual case. This means a new indication for practitioners working with Connect Software.

“Primescan firmware enhancements make the digital workflow even faster and easier than before,”said Dr. Alexander Voelcker, group vice president of global digital solutions marketing at Dentsply Sirona. “In addition to significantly increased speed, the smoothness of the scan has also been improved. For clinicians working with Primescan in their practice, these improvements regularly mean more efficient workflows, even greater reliability, and, at the same time, a very comfortable patient experience.”

Dentists can learn more about Primescan at Dentsply Sirona World 2021, a three-day event in Las Vegas from September 23-25. For more information, visit
