Digital Solution from DIO

the leader of the dental market trend and digital dentistry


Along with dissemination of digital equipment,
perception of digital dentistry changes positive.

As the flow of the continuously growing in implant market, digital equipment such as CBCT, oral scanner, CAD/CAM SW, and 3D printer has become popular and the transition to ‘digital dentistry’ is accelerating. Digital dentistry refers to the digitalization of the entire medical treatment process. At the beginning, the penetration rate was low due to the burden of introduction cost and doubts about the new method.
However, as the number of successful cases increases due to the introduction of digital equipment, more clinicians now perceive digital dentistry as an investment for profitability.

Economics of
digital dentistry

More precedures in the same amount of time = Greater production per hour

Increasing production and doing less rework = Higher profitability

Saving your patient time, reducing inconveniences = Increased perception of value and case acceptance

As a result of a survey conducted by ‘Gordon J. Christensen Clinician Report’ of 385 dentists using an oral scanner in the United States, 72% answered that 'the introduction of an oral scanner was a better choice on a budget', only 9% answered no. In addition, when asked if they would like to purchase an oral scanner again, 84% answered 'will buy', which can confirm a positive change in perception after the introduction of digital equipment.

Digital Implant System DIOnavi. & DIOnavi. Full Arch


DIO, which had been paying attention to the digital dentistry market from an early stage, launched the first digital implant guide system ‘DIOnavi.’ that 100% digitally applied to the entire process in 2014.
'DIOnavi.', called a digital implant, is different from the existing analog implant procedure, with data obtained from an oral scanner and CT scan, the optimal placement position, angle, and depth are determined through computer program simulation, and digital surgeries that fit the patient's oral condition The surgical guide is made with a 3D printer and the surgery is performed.
‘DIOnavi.’, which showed an overwhelming presence in stability, accuracy, and convenience, has been leading the digitalization of dental care, predicting that it will exceed 600,000 cumulative installation holes within 9 years of launch and 700,000 holes in 2022.

DIOnavi. Full Arch

Thanks to the global success of DIO’s ‘DIOnavi.’, DIO launched ‘DIOnavi. Full Arch’, a solution for edentulous patients in 2018.
Although the number of edentulous patients continues to increase along with the aging of the population, edentulous patients have been using dentures for a long period of time or leave them as they are, leading to severe gum bone resorption, making implant placement difficult and treatment methods limited.
However, ‘DIOnavi. Full Arch’ applies a digital treatment method to accurately acquire the patient's gums, vertical dimension, and occlusion data. So that it reduces surgical errors and restore the function of the entire tooth with only 4 to 6 implants placed while ensuring minimal incision. Digital treatment method shortens the operation time and reduce the number of visits to the dentist, increasing the satisfaction of edentulous patients.

Full digital treatment solution DIO Ecosystem

Last year, DIO launched the digital treatment solution ‘DIO Ecosystem’ in line with the continuous growth trend of the global digital dentistry market. ‘DIO Ecosystem’ is a core solution for ‘chairside digital dental care’ that digitizes the entire process necessary for treatment and enables all processes from diagnosis to design, printing, and implantation.
‘DIO Ecosystem’ consists of full line up for digital treatment such as oral scanners for diagnosis, prosthesis design software 'DIO ECO CAD' that combines big data and artificial intelligence, 3D printer 'DIO PROBO Z', curing machine 'DIO PROBO Cure2', UV irradiator 'UV Activator2', and 3D printing materials, enables the realization of a digital dental treatment environment with convenience, accuracy, and economy.

DIO UV Implant System The first UV implant system with seconds speed ever

DIO, which achieved innovation in digital dentistry through ‘DIOnavi.’, has continued its momentum by launching the first UV implant system with seconds speed ever 'DIO UV Implant System' in 2019. ‘DIO UV Implant System’ is an essential solution to complete digital treatment that creates hydrophilicity for rapid osseointegration with an irradiation time of only 20 seconds.
When the irradiation is carried out with the UV irradiator ‘UV Activator2’, a UV lamp with a 360° cylindrical pattern irradiates without gaps to increase the transmittance and absorption of UV rays, which in turn results in the acquisition of hydrophilicity of the implant surface.
The excellence of UV-irradiated implants has been verified through various papers and clinical applications. Even though many UV-related products are on the market, ‘DIO UV Implant System’ is leading the popularization of UV implant systems by selling 1,000 units in just one year.
