James R. Glidewell Dental Ceramics, Inc. Key Developments

Align Technology, Inc. Expands Distribution for iTero Element and Enhances Same-Day Dental Restorations with Glidewell Dental

Align Technology, Inc. announced an agreement with Glidewell Dental to distribute the iTero Element® intraoral scanning system in North America with the newly unveiled glidewell.io™ In-Office Solution, a chairside restorative ecosystem designed to simplify the process of prescribing and delivering laboratory-quality dental restorations. Glidewell Dental has provided digital laboratory services for more than 215,000 iTero restorative cases. This new, expanded collaboration will provide doctors with affordable access and a trusted workflow to support same-day dental restorations. The iTero Element scanner will feature Glidewell's fastdesign.io™ software, which serves to auto-design restorations for the clinician's approval or communicate with a lab's digital design technicians as needed. Final designs can be used to prescribe a laboratory milled restoration, or sent to the fastmill.io™ In-Office Unit for immediate chairside milling. The iTero Element scanner featuring the glidewell.io In-Office Solution is being previewed at the upcoming Greater New York Dental Meeting, November 24 through 29 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. The iTero Element featuring the glidewell.io In-Office Solution is expected to be available to North American customers in first quarter of 2018.

Glidewell Laboratories Launches Newport Biologics Line of Regenerative Materials

Glidewell Laboratories announced the availability of a new line of bone grafting products, to be sold under the Newport Biologics brand name. Featuring allograft and alloplast bone graft options, as well as resorbable barrier membranes and a collagen-based wound dressing, this product line is aimed at increasing clinician access to top-quality regenerative materials for use in cases marked by bone or soft tissue deficiencies. Along with the damaging cycle of tooth loss and tissue resorption known to result from periodontal defects, extraction sockets, and other bone deficiencies, industry trends suggest that an increasing percentage of dental implant procedures require bone grafting to optimize the esthetic and functional result. These and other factors have led to a discernible rise in the demand for grafting procedures in the modern dental practice. Newport Biologics products are carefully selected for the dental practice and processed in accordance with rigorous U.S. FDA regulations. The allograft materials are sourced from the venerable University of Miami Tissue Bank, the oldest in the nation, and resorbable membranes are engineered to optimize handling characteristics to support the clinician's preferred bone grafting techniques. Individual product names are intended to clearly reflect the material's composition and usage.
