Single-Tooth Replacement Solution Streamlines Digital Workflow

Dentsply Sirona’s Azento single-tooth replacement solution, which is highly customized to the needs and timeframe of dentists and patients, streamlines implant planning service, purchasing, and delivery, according to the company.

Dentists will receive a precise, customized digital treatment plan based on each patient’s digital scans, with imaging systems such as the Orthophos SL and intraoral scanners like the CEREC Omnicam submitted through a case management portal, Dentsply Sirona says. 

Azento includes all of the components and instruments necessary to complete an implant treatment, including a surgical guide, implant, and custom healing abutment, delivered within five days of approving the treatment plan. This eliminates the effort of coordinating purchases with multiple suppliers and monitoring inventory in the office.

“This streamlined workflow solution offers tangible financial and time-saving benefits by reducing administrative responsibilities, number of visits, and patient chair time,” said Joe Massoels, director digital implant solutions at Dentsply Sirona. “It is designed to help dentists select the best-fitting implant, determine optimal implant positioning, healing environment, and restoration for each case.”

Azento enables practices to achieve consistently excellent results thanks to the customized and prosthetically driven treatment plan, based on each patient’s digital scans, Dentsply Sirona says. It also includes a custom healing abutment, contouring the emergence profile and enabling a final aesthetic result. 

With Azento, dental professionals also will receive custom digital treatment plans that will help communicate the procedure clearly to patients, who will also benefit from the reduced number of visits and chair time, Dentsply Sirona says.

“The Azento team supports me in planning a truly restorative driven implant placement, reducing the risk of complications, ensuring accuracy, and producing excellent results,” said Dr. Daniel Butterman, a dental surgeon in Centennial, Colo.

Azento works with the Astra Tech Implant System and Xive. It also includes an Atlantis custom healing abutment and optional temporary restoration. The final restoration can be performed with Atlantis and CEREC or through an Atlantis dental lab.

Azento will be available in Canada and Europe in 2019.
