To create temporary crowns and bridges
exocad‘s virtual articulator allows users to consider dynamic occlusion when designing crowns and bridges. The positioning of the stone models within the physical articulator can be precisely transferred into the software (with the aid of a scanner that supports virtual articulation as well), for perfect patientspecific results.
Parameters such as condylar angle, bennet angle, immediate side shift, can be adjusted just like on a physical articulator and can also be imported from 3rd party measurement systems through an open, XMLbased format. The articulator module requires a high-accuracy 3d scanner capable of measuring the position of the models relative to the specific articulator type used.

With exocad's bite splint module, therapeutic night guards can be designed quickly and in high quality. We recommend to use the bite splint add-on in combination with the virtual articulator module, for optimal patient-specific results. Output files can be both milled or 3D printed.
exocad‘s Dental CAD platform includes an integrated DICOM viewer that allows you to visualize voxel data from CT machines, during the design of dental restorations. Thanks to its integrated HTTP server, exocad‘s exoplanviewer enables on-line exchange of implant and tooth position data with third-party programs, such as implant planning software. The exoplan viewer functionality is available as an add-on module and requires a graphics card with at least 1.5 GB of video memory.
Note: exoplan viewer is not for diagnostic/medical purposes
exocad‘s TruSmile technology provides nearly photo-realistic rendering of dental restorations – in real-time, already during the design process. In addition to providing a “What You See is What You Get“ user experience, TruSmile can also become a powerful marketing tool for dentists using chairside CAD/CAM systems – e.g. to convince a patient to get a ceramic restoration instead of a metal crown.
Rendering presets are available for common materials such as ceramic, NP metal, or zirconia; in addition, OEM s can customize render effects to match the visualization the materials they offer. TruSmile provides realistic single tooth color selection. TruSmile is available as an add-on module, and requires at least a mid-range 3D card (nVidia GeForce GTX 460 or faster).

exocad's model creator helps you create physical models from intra-oral scan data, or impression scans. Both the design of models with detachable segments (using premanufactured bases), and the design of monolithic models (where only the prepared die is removable) is supported.
exocad's implant module is available as an add-on for our Dental CAD platform. With this module, custom abutments and screw-retained bridges can be designed easily.
Custom abutment design
With exocad‘s implant module, the design of custom abutments is easy and straightforward. When designing bridges on custom abutments, the software will ensure that all abutments holding the bridge will have the same insertion axis.
Screw retained bridges
The design of screw retained bridges, crowns, and copings also becomes an easy task. Take advantage of our advanced screw channel design, to simplify subsequent ceramic coating and minimize risk of chipping.
High productivity and process reliability
Custom abutments and suprastructure can be designed together in a single CAD session. Since milling parameters for both abutment and suprastructure are correctly considered during the design phase, optimal fitting is possible when producing all parts in one go – without the intermediate step of rescanning the produced abutment in order to design the suprastructure. It’s your choice if you mill in-house or send out your files for production a wide range of in-house milling systems are supported, and leading production centers will accept files written by exocad software.

To create physical models
exocad‘s bar module allows both fast and easy realization of standard dental bars, as well as advanced custom bar design. Attachments or retentions can be added to the design; cylindrical holes or even arbitrary geometries can be cut out in order to bolt or glue pre-fabricated attachments onto the bar.
Thanks to its elaborate design options, exocad‘s bar module allows you to design dental bars that deal gracefully with complex clinical situations, and provide maximum comfort for patients. Producing bars with optimal fitting requires an ultraprecise scanning system. Our software features work flow integration with high precision measurement devices, including tactile scanners, to ensure perfect process reliability.
With the provisional module, individual temporary crowns and bridges can be designed using the eggshell technique. The temporaries are created based on scans of the pre-operative situation; the shape of the provisional crown/bridge can either be copied from the original anatomy (if the original tooth is still in reasonably good shape), or the tooth libraries can be used.
