Doctors TV Show highlights the technological advance in chairside CAD/CAM.

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina--The Doctors TV Show, which airs on the CBS network, recently featured a segment on the CEREC AC system from Sirona Dental Systems.

CEREC AC, a technological advance in chairside CAD/CAM, gives dentists the ability to capture digital impressions and create precise dental restorations in a single appointment.

The segment may be viewed online at The Doctors or at CEREC Online.

At the heart of CEREC AC is the Bluecam handheld acquisition camera, which uses a highly visible blue light LED (light-emitting diode) to capture digital impressions.

The optics used in the Bluecam camera are optimized for a higher depth of field and accuracy, and are coupled with increased computing power to display crisp, detailed digital impressions:

The camera:

* Delivers precise 3D digital models
* Has easier and shorter acquisition times because it acquires the image automatically. It senses the right time to capture the image, and does so without intervention from the user
* Provides a uniform field of illumination for increased precision
* Captures digital impressions with speed--half-arch impressions in 40 seconds.

For more information about CEREC AC powered by Bluecam or to schedule a demonstration, call a local Patterson sales representative at (800) 873-7683 or visit CEREC.
