Sirona Dental Systems has released its latest dental CAD/CAM system for automatic capture of digital tooth impressions. The system revolves around a blue LED powered camera that automatically takes pictures without intervention by the dentist.
Features from the product page:
The blue light emitted by the CEREC Bluecam illuminates the treatment site perfectly and allows you to capture near inaccessible areas with the utmost precision.
Automatic image capture
The camera automatically detects the right moment to trigger the exposure. All you have to do is move the CEREC Bluecam step by step over the relevant area. In this way you can acquire whole quadrants in a single streamlined operation.
The built-in shake detection system, combined with the short capture time, ensures that images are acquired only when the camera is absolutely still. The CEREC 3D software automatically eliminates substandard images.
The CEREC Bluecam is based on the design of the highly successful CEREC camera, which has proved itself many thousands of times in practical application. The compact dimensions of CEREC Bluecam give you easy access to posterior teeth. With the help of the CEREC camera support you can place the CEREC Bluecam directly on the teeth and hence maintain the correct clearance for optimum optical impressions.
Outstanding depth of field
You can either place the CEREC Bluecam with the camera support directly on the tooth, or capture the images leaving a small clearance from the surface. In both cases the parallel light beam ensures an optimum depth of field as well as a high level of handling flexibility. The versatile CEREC Bluecam allows you to acquire optical impressions in near inaccessible areas of the oral cavity — quickly and simply.
Enhanced preparation margin precision
Resulting from its improved depth of field, the CEREC Bluecam generates high-precision images of the preparation margins — a crucial factor for the quality of the restoration. This would be unthinkable without the short-wavelength blue light.
