industry // news OrthoAccel Technologies Granted 3 New Patents in U.S., China 3Shape and Ormco Announce Trios Integration with Insignia Advanced Smile Design OrthoAccel Technologies has been granted two new patents from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and one international patent from China's patent office in the category of vibrating dental devices. The new patents protect key design elements and ranges of parameters for AcceleDent, an FDA-cleared vibratory orthodontic device that can speed up orthodontic treatment by as much as 50 percent and reduce the discomfort associated with orthodontic treatment. A Class II medical device, AcceleDent is available by prescription in more than 3,000 locations in North America and nearly 800 more internationally. To use AcceleDent, patients bite on the product mouthpiece for 20 minutes daily while vibrations from its patented SoftPulse Technology accelerate bone modeling and remodeling in the craniofacial region. For more information about the Acceledent device, go to acceledent.com/orthodontists. Trios, 3Shape's digital color impression solution, is now integrated with Insignia Advanced Smile Design, a computer-designed treatment planning and custom-fabricated appliance software system by Ormco, a manufacturer and provider of advanced orthodontic technology and services. The integration took effect June 20. The time-saving workflow integration enables orthodontists to send Trios intraoral scans with just a click to Ormco for the planning and delivery of its Insignia bracket treatment system. For orthodontists using Trios, the integration eliminates the steps of having to either take an analog PVS impression or manually upload a large and bulky intraoral scan file to a server. Now they can just choose Insignia from their 3Shape Communicate account to submit the case and send the Trios digital color impression file to Ormco, which then uses the intraoral scan to create its customized digital orthodontic treatments. With a keen focus on the orthodontist and their clinical needs, Insignia has been recently updated to include enhanced custom TIB tubes with reduced profiles and increased bond strength. To offer orthodontists better, more accurate tracking and planning information, Insignia also offers dynamic case tracking.
