  • With the Zirkonzahn.Implant-Planner implant planning software, the cooperation between the dentist and the dental laboratory can be taken to new levels, reconciling the planned aesthetic design of a prosthetic restoration with the planned implant situation (backward planning).  Based on digitally merged patient data (such as DICOM data or data from model or facial scans), the dentist can determine the optimal implant position in terms of function, anatomy and aesthetics, taking bone structure into account.

  • Implant models: digitally plan implant models and provide the dentist with a complete package including surgical guide, custom impression tray and temporary restoration 


  • Zirkonzahn provides dental technicians with all the necessary components, both hardware and software, for the digital planning of a complete restoration. The South Tyrolean firm manufactures all components and materials required for scanning, constructing and milling, including the materials needed in implant prosthetics: titanium bases, Scanmarkers, White Scanmarkers, laboratory analogues, ScanAnalogs, Multi Unit Abutments, Raw-Abutment® blanks with prefabricated implant connections, screws and milling materials.

  • It’s all change for the Orthodontic Technicians Association (OTA) after its September conference and annual general meeting in Manchester.

  • Flexible Partilas 

    Injection Fast® allows injecting a special cartridge (IPER) that can contain up to 45 grammes of any thermoplastic material. This is a unique feature of the Injection Fast® system, no other system currently offers what.

    The system obviously allows yourself to inject small amounts of materials, to achieve small or medium sized devices. The system in addition to the double flask can use the conventional single flask, thanks to our universal adaptor.

    To compliment the most advanced injection system, we also offer the high-performance polyamide with the 7 aesthetic colours, ultra-compact surface, that will not discolour.

    Come to our stand for special offers.

  • Heart patients could be screened in just 90 seconds using a wireless, hand-held device designed and developed by AME Group.

    Working closely with our client Rapid Rhythm, we employed a user-focused design process that identified a number of product innovations.

    The result is a user-friendly device that facilitates quicker heart screening tests and requires fewer training hours for medical professionals.

    More than half a million people in the UK suffer from atrial fibrillation (AF), which causes an irregular heart rate. AF results in 575,000 hospital admissions a year.

    The Rapid Rhythm device is held to a patient’s chest to diagnose AF and other major cardiac conditions. Data is relayed to a LCD touchscreen displaying a four-line ECG trace and wirelessly downloaded for further analysis by a doctor. It is compatible with existing ECG machines and can be used in many clinical settings.

    As part of our user-focused design process, we conducted on-site interviews at GP surgeries and heart wards to understand patients’ needs.

    This identified a number of unique product features that we explored across a range of design concepts. The chosen product was engineered in 3D CAD, with a number of test prototypes created using our in-house facilities.

    AME Group is on Stand C22

  • Versatile zirconium oxide to supplement the all-ceramic range

    IPS e.max is the flagship all-ceramic system from Ivoclar Vivadent. Since it was launched, the IPS e.max range has comprised lithium disilicate glass-ceramic materials (IPS e.max Press and IPS e.max CAD) and zirconium oxide (IPS e.max ZirCAD). Now the range will be extended to include zirconium oxide discs and blocks for the fabrication of natural looking restorations with optimized properties.

  • Renishaw will demonstrate the improved functionality of its new scanning equipment at the Dental Technology Showcase (DTS), taking place 12th – 13th May 2017 at the NEC Birmingham, UK. On stand H10 Renishaw will exhibit its innovative dental scanners and promote advances in digital partial dentures and promote its additively manufactured maxillofacial implants.

    As a well-established manufacturer with extensive knowledge of the dentistry industry, Renishaw will exhibit its range of new dental scanners, developed by Medit. The new scanners allow dental labs to provide a more efficient and cost effective service to their customers.

    Visitors to the stand will also be able to see Renishaw’s innovative metal 3D printed removable partial dentures (RPDs), known as LaserRPDTM. These additively manufactured dentures have strong flexible clasps to firmly hold the dentures in place whilst allowing for easy fit down. LaserRPDs can be quicker and cheaper to produce and create less waste than traditional methods.

    To show the benefits of a full digital workflow, Renishaw will have a specialist on hand to answer questions and aid best practice:

    James Cox of Intelligent Dental Design, an exocad expert, will be on-hand to offer scanning and CAD demonstrations as well as show the more advanced features available.
