Dürr Dental presents a new high-end scanner for simultaneous scanning of two image plates at the same time

Intelligent, time-efficient, high-quality – with VistaScan Ultra View, global market leader Dürr Dental has launched a high-end device that is capable of scanning all formats of image plate and is specially designed to meet the tough demands of clinics and larger dental practices.

Exceptional image quality thanks to PCS

"The patented PCS Scan Technology for exceptional image quality even for the finest structures forms the basis of the success story of the VistaScan family. It goes without saying that this technology is also at the heart of the Ultra View system", explains Product Manager Michael Maier. VistaScan Ultra View is capable of reliably displaying even early stages of caries lesions and endodontic instruments.

Parallel scanning with 2 slots

This is the only scanner in the world with RFID technology and two slots so that users can scan and digitise two image plates at the same time and therefore save valuable time. Another bonus is the easy insertion concept; thanks to this innovation, users are able to insert multiple image plates quickly one after the other. The easy feed concept enables image plates to be fed into the unit and scanned straight away, one after the other – with no time wasted in between. The scan slots in the VistaScan Ultra View system can be easily adjusted to all intraoral image plate formats with the aid of interchangeable plate guides.

ScanManager – for even more efficient working

Just like all the other devices in the VistaScan View family, Ultra View can also be integrated in the practice network via LAN or WLAN, and it can also handle multiple scan tasks from different PCs. These are displayed with the aid of the Scan Manager on the hygienic, high-resolution 7" touchscreen display, which is made of glass. Select the required task on the display, carry out the scan and perform a diagnosis on the PC screen straight away.

AI – Intelligent Assisted Functions

In addition, in combination with VistaScan image plates IQ and the imaging software VistaSoft , Ultra View offers a range of helpful, AI-assisted additional functions. "A good feature to mention here would be the automated image plate quality check", says Maier. "Here, the system assesses the condition of the image plate and automatically recommends its replacement if necessary to ensure that image quality remains consistently high at all times."

Another new AI feature checks the orientation of intraoral X-ray images on the basis of the anatomical features seen in the image and then corrects the orientation if necessary. This step alone would need to be performed manually many times a day otherwise.

Can you hear the wind of change? A revolution has just begun. With Careclave, MELAG has developed the first 4-in-1 Solution for instrument reprocessing in dental practices and clinics. We summarize all the benefits and tell you why you will love Careclave!

The hygiene workflow in Germany will never be the same again. More than 500 dental practices and clinics have already implemented the workflow of the future and are enthusiastic about it. Why? MELAG combines standard compliant decontamination and oil care of dental hollow body instruments with a high-performance autoclave in just one device.

1. Cleaning & disinfection of hollow dental instruments.

With the Carebox, Careclave guarantees the best cleaning and disinfection results of up to eight transmission instruments, prophylaxis handpieces or ultrasonic scaler-tips. Reprocessing, including oil care and drying, takes only 16 to 18 minutes.

2. Oil care of dental handpieces including chuck care

The Carebox also takes care of the transmission instruments - gently and quickly. To ensure that the important chuck care is not forgotten it is performed manually at the end of the program directly on the ADDcare Station.

3. Sterilization of all instruments in Careclave

Careclave is also a modern class B autoclave. The unit sterilizes up to eleven kilograms of instruments on up to eight trays in a particularly short time. Depending on the load, a sterilization cycle takes only 13 to 22 minutes plus drying thanks to the patented double-jacket technology. Alternatively, the variable chamber concept allows instruments to be reprocessed and cared in the Carebox with simultaneous sterilization of other wrapped instruments on trays in just one cycle.

4. Digital documentation & approval

Bye Bye paper mountains! With ProControl, you can provide an error-free instrument reprocessing quickly, reliably and paperless. This is because documentation and approval can be carried out directly on the Careclave display without any extra software. The log files are stored on the MELAG USB stick or via network connection - for complete traceability and restful nights without worries!

So it comes as no surprise that Careclave has already conquered the hearts of over 500 dental practices and clinics. The conclusion is unanimous: The 4-in-1 Solution spreads joy, protects instruments and reduces running costs.

The manufacturer's promise is comprehensive: maximum safety, optimum protection and care of handpieces and contra-angle handpieces, 45% less space consumption and substantial cost savings. But can Careclave meet these expectations in practice? According to Dr. Thorsten Wilde, the answer is clearly YES.

Do you also want to join the revolution?

We've put together a quick guide to help you decide whether investing into a CBCT unit is right for you.

Think about the following:

1. Do you have room or can you create a room for a CBCT unit?

You need at least a 1.5m2 square room with a 2.3m ceiling height and space in that room for a PC and monitor.

2. What is your dentistry specialisation?

Do you do implants, endontics, Orthodontics, Oral or maxillofacial surgery for example.

3. What functions of a CBCT unit would enhance your dentistry specialisation?

Think about 2D imaging, 3D imaging, 4D Jaw motion, ultra low dose, the maximum volume size in a single scan, cephalometric scanning

4. Are you in a position to look at a long term investment?

You're more than likely to make this purchase on finance and probably looking at commitment of 3, 5 or even 7 years. You may also be able to make this investment pay for itself by taking on 3D scanning referrals from other Practices for example.

5. Do you want to be able to offer your patients a 'one stop shop'?

Times are changing and time is precious. Patients are looking to save time. Broadening your services and carrying out a scan and treatment in one visit will appeal to patients and 'word of mouth' will soon have

more patients knocking at your door. Going into digital dentistry is the future.

Plandemo is a hands on approach to choosing the right CBCT unit for you. We can bring Plandemo to your Practice and the CBCT unit experts can take a live CBCT of a

patient and talk through your needs and help match the right CBCT unit to you.

AG Dental can carry out a free site survey to inspect the room and provide the costings to get the room ready for your new CBCT unit. We have also partnered up Abacus Professions Finance who can help arrange your finance repayments.
