2009

PIC system is released

 

Initially called just "PIC camera", the world’s first and most precise implants oral scanner became a reality. The recently founded company began to build a network of distributors and customers around the world

The idea of a digital transformation was still a utopia-like concept for most of the dental industry at the time. Back in 2009, very few dental practices owned in-house digital solutions such as the intraoral scanners that are commonplace today.

PIC dental’s in-house hybrid production center

 

May 2013 was when the Sintermec Project was founded. It was an in-house dental prostheses production center that combined laser sintering and milling technologies, which offered digital impression services with the PIC system and production of CAD/CAM structures for dental prosthesis.
 

This project continued for several years as it allowed PIC dental to complete thousands of full arch implant restoration cases in-house to validate the performance of the PIC system and quickly refine the PIC pro workflow.

Over 3,000

in-house full arch clinical cases completed

 

In 2015, PIC dental completed an average of 60 full arch prostheses each week. The in-house production center became the main solution for many customers in addressing their most complex cases.

PIC center kept ramping up its capacity year-over-year. The star product became the immediate loading treatments, achieving 500+ same-day full arch screwed provisional deliveries.
 
Getting the impression, designing and manufacturing in the same day was not an issue anymore. The daily workload for immediate loading cases became a standard solution for our customers.

After thousands of successful clinical cases, PIC dental sold its production center and finished providing in-house cases as a service due to the growing success of sales, leading to an exponential increase in patients treated directly by PIC system owners.

By this time, over 200,000 patients were successfully treated worldwide using a PIC system to get a passive fit in their full arch cases.
