As doctors look for opportunities to improve their practices and streamline their workflows, digital dentistry has emerged as one of the fastest-growing areas in the field. Developed by Glidewell, the glidewell.io™ In-Office Solution stands out as a comprehensive way for Dental Service Organizations to benefit from these innovations. Offering convenient same-day crown delivery, this innovative CAD/CAM system eliminates the need for cumbersome temporaries, providing patients with new restorations without the wait. Meanwhile, the integration of CrownAI™ empowers dentists with AI-driven crown design software, ensuring unparalleled accuracy and consistency. Beyond enhancing patient satisfaction clinical control, glidewell.io significantly cuts operational costs by allowing practitioners to fabricate restorations in-house and reducing appointment times.

Easier Workflow

The glidewell.io In-Office Solution presents an opportunity for dental practices to make their workflows significantly more efficient with better clinical care — without sacrificing time and resources. With this CAD/CAM system, patients no longer have to wear temporaries while waiting on lab-made crowns. Instead, they can receive a new restoration in just one appointment. From start to finish, the interface of the glidewell.io software is user-friendly, empowering practitioners as well as their staff to easily navigate the process of designing and milling crowns. Training is also provided to doctors and their staff to ensure that every clinic maximizes the potential of each piece of hardware and software in the glidewell.io system. If additional assistance is needed, our team of specialists are always available via text, chat, email or phone for real-time tech support. Unlike other companies who outsource their tech support to overseas call centers, every Glidewell support member is located on-site at our campus in Irvine, California.

AI Enhancement

Part of what makes glidewell.io so easy to use is the integration of artificial intelligence through its proprietary crown design software, CrownAI. This innovative technology revolutionizes the crown design process by harnessing AI algorithms to generate custom designs tailored to each patient’s unique morphology and needs. Drawing on a database of 20 million successful cases, CrownAI ensures precision and reliability in crown fabrication, mirroring the standards upheld by Glidewell labs. When a scan is uploaded, CrownAI generates a design ready for approval within seconds. This intuitive process eliminates the need for complex manual intervention, thus streamlining the treatment timeline and enhancing overall productivity. If needed, doctors can also adjust the margins, occlusion, and shape, resulting in better-fitting, more esthetic results.

From Mill to Mouth — No Oven Needed

Complementing the digital workflow of glidewell.io is the fastmill.io™ In-Office Mill, a compact chairside milling unit. Measuring just 17.88” x 17.44” x 13.25”, about the size of a microwave, its small footprint makes it easy to fit in any office. The chairside mill is remarkably fast, enabling doctors to fabricate BioTemps® and CAMouflage® crowns in under ten minutes and BruxZir® NOW crowns in under 40 minutes. As a fully sintered zirconia, BruxZir® NOW eliminates the need for an additional step of oven firing, thus saving significant time. In fact, creating a durable, lifelike restoration using glidewell.io requires only half the steps required compared to conventional chairside zirconia. Doctors will also be happy to know that every material block includes a brand-new bur.

Patient Satisfaction and Retention

Same-day dentistry with glidewell.io significantly enhances patient satisfaction and retention by offering convenience, efficiency, and immediate results. By providing treatments and restorations in a single visit, patients experience reduced waiting times and avoid the inconvenience of multiple appointments. This streamlined approach not only saves time but also minimizes disruptions to their daily schedules, leading to a more positive overall experience. The need for anesthesia, which can be costly and stressful for patients, is also kept to a minimum. Having to undergo anesthesia twice due to a remake can be a significant inconvenience. In turn, this gives the practice a competitive edge because patients are more likely to recommend clinicians who offer same-day crowns. 

In the rapidly evolving landscape of dental care, the glidewell.io In-Office Solution emerges as a beacon of innovation and efficiency for forward-thinking Dental Service Organizations (DSOs). By seamlessly integrating digital technology into the workflow, glidewell.io not only enhances clinical care but patient experiences as well. With its user-friendly interface and AI-powered CrownAI software, practitioners can effortlessly design and fabricate custom crowns tailored to the individual needs of each patient with greater accuracy than ever before. With real-time tech support and comprehensive training provided, glidewell.io ensures that every clinic can maximize the potential of their digital tools, even digital newcomers.
