exocad’s DentalCAD platform includes an optional DICOM Viewer* that allows you to visualize voxel data from CT machines during the design of dental restorations.
Get enthused about the high-speed processing of large CBCT files. Driven by optimized data handling algorithms and snappy graphics rendering, the DICOM Viewer provides market-leading DICOM loading and visualization speeds.
*Note: DICOM Viewer is not for diagnostic/medical purposes.
Add-on Module: Smile Creator In-CAD Smile Design
Create added value with Smile Creator – exocad’s innovative In-CAD smile design solution for predictable esthetic smile makeovers. Integrated into the DentalCAD platform, Smile Creator empowers you to reliably create prosthetically feasible esthetic designs thanks to our innovative 2D/3D technology. By combining patient photos, outlines and 3D situations, esthetic relationships between teeth, smile and face can be evaluated. Patient photos are automatically converted to 3D objects, which are then matched to the 3D scans of the teeth. This offers dentists and dental technicians a realistic perspective for a restorative treatment plan. In addition to greater control over the outcome, this improves communication between dental labs, dentists and patients. Thanks to its guided workflows and extensive features, Smile Creator is an intuitive, yet powerful digital planning solution for cosmetic dentistry.
