industry // news Sirona Expands Orthodontic Product Line CEREC Omnicam and its new CEREC Ortho Software can now be used to submit digital impressions for Invisalign clear-aligner therapy. The new CEREC Ortho SW 1.1 features a patent-pending, guided scanning process and connects CEREC with Invisalign treatment. Digital models created from CEREC Omnicam intraoral data are transferred to Align Technology and used as part of the record submission for an Invisalign treatment. This eliminates the process of creating and sending physical impressions, which results in faster processing of the case. The new software, exclusive for CEREC Omnicam systems, will be available in selected markets by the summer of 2015. Biolux Research Announces Product Approval in Australia and New Zealand Biolux Research has announced that its product, OrthoPulse, has received two new regulatory approvals. These recent approvals, in Australia and New Zealand, will enable doctors in those countries to offer this technology to their orthodontic patients. OrthoPulse utilizes low-level light therapy, or photobiomodulation, to stimulate the periodontium and alveolar bone surrounding the roots of the teeth to significantly increase tooth movement and reduce treatment time for braces or clear aligners. Biolux CEO Kevin Strange said the product has already received regulatory approval in Europe and Canada and may receive more approvals in the near future.
