BIOLASE to Introduce Galaxy BioMill(TM) CAD/CAM System

BIOLASE to Introduce Galaxy BioMill(TM) CAD/CAM System 
Most Innovative and Competitively Priced Chair-Side Milling System in
the Market; Galaxy BioMill to Be Fully-Integrated With 3Shapes's
Trios Intra-Oral Scanner 
IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/11/13 --  BIOLASE, Inc. (NASDAQ:
BIOL), the world's leading manufacturer and distributor of dental
lasers, and a pioneer in laser surgery in other medical specialties,
today announced that it plans to introduce its Galaxy BioMill CAD/CAM
System at the upcoming Greater New York Dental Meeting, the largest
dental congress and exposition in the United States, which will be
held from November 29 through December 4, 2013.  
The Galaxy BioMill, developed and designed by BIOLASE in conjunction
with imes-icore GmbH in Germany, is a CAD/CAM system for scanning,
designing, milling and finishing crowns, inlays, and veneers in the
dental office in a single appointment. Also termed "chair-side"
milling, the market is currently estimated to have reached 15% market
penetration in the U.S. and, according to independent research, is
one of the fastest growing segments in the dental market. The Galaxy
BioMill System will utilize 3Shape Corporation's Trios fast and
highly accurate intra-oral scanner to capture high resolution
three-dimensional ("3-D") digital images of the teeth and
crown-preparation site, which are then processed through a CAD/CAM
software program to design the dental restoration. The design is then
transferred to the Galaxy BioMill to mill the crown using the latest
in aesthetically pleasing, biological compatible, and long-lasting
tooth colored materials. 
Federico Pignatelli, Chairman and CEO of BIOLASE, explained, "We
believe that the Galaxy BioMill is the final key step in the
completion of our Total Technology Solution. We can now offer a
complete portfolio of unique and standard-of-care changing hard- and
soft-tissue dental lasers, 2-D and 3-D digital radiography, and the
best-in-class CAD/CAM products. With the addition of the Galaxy
BioMill, we can provide a one-stop-shop for dentists for all major
high-tech dental capital equipment investments. With this innovative
approach, we will allow dentists to obtain training, service, and
support of multiple high-tech units from one source only, instead of
multiple s
ources.  
"Imes-icore is a world leader in milling technology and the BioMill
component of the Galaxy System features unmatched accuracy and has
the flexibility to process virtually all CAD/CAM milling block
materials up to 60mm for size in both wet and dry milling. This
flexibility is further enhanced by features normally only found in
high-end mills used by dental laboratories, such as a 6 position tool
changer with digital tool management, 4 axis processing, and a high
precision 360 degrees  A-axis processing station which provides
all-important vibration-free stability. 
"With its open architecture, the Galaxy BioMill with 3Shape CAD/CAM
software can also provide a cost-effective milling solution for the
many Cadent iTero, 3M Lava, and, of course, 3Shape Trios intra-oral
scanner users who recognize the significant return on investment that
it offers and clinical benefits of adding chair-side milling to their
practices. The Galaxy BioMill System will compete with market leaders
such as the Cerec CAD/CAM System, from Sirona, and the E4D System,
distributed by Henry Schein," concluded Pignatelli. 
Cristoph Stark, Managing Director of Imes-Icore GmbH, said, "We are
very excited about this strong alliance and partnership with BIOLASE
and 3Shape. 3Shape and imes-icore were one of the first partners to
cooperate in creating full dental CAD/CAM solutions on a high level,
and both parties have vast experience and interest for developing
additional chairside functionality. We look forward to expanding our
technology into dental practices with BIOLASE as a very powerful
partner in North America." 
3Shape's General Manager, North American Operations, Henrik
Vestermark, also commented, "3Shape is pleased to play a key part in
the joint development of the Galaxy BioMill System and welcomes the
significant opportunity for increased penetration of the important
North American market that BIOLASE provides us. We have worked
closely with imes-icore for many years and believe that the move to
combining digital scanning with CAD/CAM restorations creates a
paradigm shift in dental care with benefits for dentists and patients
being proven every day."
