D4D Technologies, an award-winning manufacturer of dental CAD CAM systems, announced the introduction of its new implant planning solution, E4D Compass, which integrates 3-D data from i-CAT® systems with E4D scan data to provide dental professionals a comprehensive and interactive view of the complete oral environment prior to implant placement.
Leading the way with restorative-based implant therapy, E4D Compass can aid in the design of the ideal restorative plan and then on the same system import DICOM data from i-CAT® cone beam systems to reveal the underlying 3-D structures for ideal implant positioning.
“The ability to do this at the chair is great for patient education and treatment plan acceptance, since it demonstrates the individual patient’s real data instead of using stock images or demonstration models. said Dr. Gary Severance, VP of Marketing and Clinical Affairs for D4D Technologies.
“It is exciting to work with the E4D Dentist System to combine two incredible technologies into one powerful solution. By combining the surface data from E4D with the underlying anatomy from the cone beam 3-D scan, doctors now have access to the full picture for complete implant and restorative treatment planning. One of the best aspects of the E4D Compass system is how easy it is to use and the fact that the entire plan can be created chairside with the patient in a matter of minutes,” said Mark Hillebrandt, Director of Marketing at Imaging Sciences International.
E4D Compass is available exclusively through Henry Schein Dental and is compatible with E4D Dentist systems running DentaLogic 2.0 and i-CAT and i-CAT Precise.
