DENTSPLY Implants expands further into the area of digital dentistry with
intraoral scanning services for ATLANTIS abutments, the latest business
development that will provide dental clinics and dental laboratories with an
improved digital workflow.

This new development was made possible through an agreement with Align
Technology, Inc., paving the way for an interface where ATLANTIS
patient-specific abutments can be ordered based upon scans from the iTero
intraoral scanner.Intraoral scanning for ATLANTIS abutments will allow the
dental laboratory to provide a complete patient-specific restorative solution
to the clinician, based on a digital impression. The added value includes
cost-savings, more precise impressions, increased patient well-being and
expedited treatment processes. The launch is planned for the second half of
2014.

“Moving forward in this expanding area of digital dentistry, dental scanning
is a strategic business opportunity. This will further strengthen DENTSPLY
Implants and our ATLANTIS offer in the areas of implant dentistry and digital
open solutions, respectively. More importantly, we are creating added value
for our customers and their patients,” says Mikael Sander, Group Vice
President ATLANTIS Digital Implant Solutions, DENTSPLY Implants.

Align Technology Inc. is based in San Jose, California with offices worldwide.
The iTero Intraoral Scanner, available in over 30 countries, is an open
architecture system which allows for compatibility with multiple
laboratory-based CAD/CAM milling systems and more than 1,200 dental labs.
