Sirona Dental Systems has generously donated a state-of-the-art 3D CEREC scanning machine to the dental clinic at Cerebral Palsy Alliance, a non-profit that provides services to thousands of people with a disability, and their families.

Mike Stone, managing director of Sirona, presented the world-class unit to the clinic at a special event held last month.

Guests on the special night were treated to a display of what is the ultimate in digital dentistry technology because it significantly reduces waiting times and discomfort for patients needing restorations.

For people living with a disability this is most welcome.

The CEREC unit removes the many challenges of taking impressions to provide treatment thus eliminating the need for multiple visits.

The patient remains in the comfort of their chair as a specialised wand operated by the dentist makes a scan. The dentist can then—during the same appointment—use this to create a custom-made crown, bridge or porcelain filling.

One patient, Kylie, had dentures that were uncomfortable and had started to rub her gums. She was one of the clinic’s first clients to be treated using CEREC. She now has a fixed bridge.

“Not having to wear removable dentures has changed my life and taken away the discomfort I used to endure. Thank you Sirona and the dentists,” she said.
