DENTSPLY SIRONA Inc. (“Dentsply Sirona”) (NASDAQ: XRAY) Dentsply Sirona is pleased to announce that the upcoming Q1 launch of inLab SW 18 will allow Dentsply Sirona inLab users the ability to mill Digital Dentures right in-house using the inLab MC X5 milling unit.

Dentsply Sirona, The Dental Solutions Company®, today announced several strategic collaborations set to further enhance its Digital Denture solutions.

Specifically, labs that use inLab MC X5 milling units and/or DGSHAPE, imes-icore will be able to mill Dentsply Sirona Digital Dentures in-house after they are designed by AvaDent.
“These collaborations are an exciting endeavor, and completely synergistic with the Dentsply Sirona vision to deliver innovative dental solutions to improve oral health worldwide,” remarked Tom Leonardi, Dentsply Sirona Group Vice President, Global Prosthetics. “Together we will advance digital denture solutions in the dental lab market, bringing Dentsply Sirona’s market leadership in removable prosthetic materials and CAD/CAM solutions.

In this spirit, it is a pleasure to officially welcome DGSHAPE and imes-icore as our new partners in digital dentures. Both companies are a great complement to our product line, and I believe that these agreements greatly underscore our commitment as a leader in removable prosthetics.”
