Connect for the dental practice

Direct communication with your laboratory

The Connect software and the Connect Case Center simplify the cooperation between dental practice and laboratory. Once registered, both sides communicate directly through the Connect Case Center. The data model is transferred within a few minutes and gives the laboratory an exact picture of the case.

The direct transmission of model data to your lab within a few minutes allows your dental technician to look at the case almost simultaneously with the practice. Thus, a first consultation with your laboratory can already be done while the patient is still in the treatment room. Another advantage over conventional impression methods.


Easy to use

Prepare, scan, send - the digital impression is so simple. It can be easily integrated into your existing treatment process. The complete design of the restoration is carried out as usual by the laboratory of your choice.

The workload in your practice is considerably simplified. With just a few scans, you can capture your preparation, neighboring teeth and antagonists. A half-jaw can be recorded in less than a minute. You can maintain a convenient treatment position the entire time. The 3D preview of the individual recordings also makes your work easier.

Benefits for the dental practice

Patient-oriented modern treatment concept

Exceptional treatment comfort:

Patients do not experience the urge to gag

Very user-friendly

Precise and rapid procedure:

Simply take the impression and send

Ideal integration in the practice workflow and subsequent laboratory commissioning

Proven laboratory quality for the well-being of the patient


Enjoy the scan.

Innovation requires commitment to ambition: Primescan sets new standards in dental technology, making scanning more accurate, faster and easier than ever.

Digital impressions in the dental practice

Connect is like no other digital impression system with an intelligent workflow that is perfectly matched to the needs of practitioners and patients alike. Short scanning times, intuitive handling of scanner and software and direct laboratory commissioning define this modern treatment method.

Dentist scanning

1. Scan

The preparation, antagonist and bite registration in the patient's mouth are quickly and precisely recorded. The scanner head is moved smoothly and closely over the teeth to be scanned and the 3D color model is successively depicted on the screen. The scanning process can be interrupted at any time and then resumed.

2. Check

The Connect software controls intraoral acquisition and subsequently calculates the virtual 3D model in seconds. The practitioner can define the preparation line himself or delegate this task to the dental laboratory.

Connect SW upload patient data

3. Send

The practice uploads the 3D model to the Connect Case Center in just seconds and completes the digital order sheet. The desired dental laboratory is then selected and the order data transmitted.

Connect SW 4 phases of digital impressions

Practice users are guided through the four phases of digital impressions step-by-step:

  • Administration of patient and case information
  • Acquisition of digital impression
  • Model: 3D model calculation, review and, if relevant, definition of the preparation line.
  • Connect: Transmission of order information to the laboratory
Connect SW model

The digital impression is visualized on the monitor as a 3D model. Different surfaces are shown in their natural color for improved orientation in the oral cavity and clear distinction between the preparation margin and gingiva.

Connect SW indications

Digital impressioning with Primescan and Omnicam supports a large range of indications from single tooth and bridge restorations to implant planning and design, as well as orthodontic applications.

Two outstanding scanners for your perfect workflow
