Three types of 3D data with one Planmeca unit

New Products

Planmeca's 3D X-ray unit range now offers a unique combination of three different 3D data. With just one unit, the user can acquire a patient CBCT image, 3D face photo and 3D model scan, and combine these data in one software suite. Planmeca is the first to introduce this type of a concept. A virtual patient is created for different clinical needs.

3D model scanning

Planmeca is proud to introduce a new imaging mode to its Planmeca ProMax® 3D X-ray units. The imaging mode is designed for scanning impressions and plaster casts. Impressions are automatically inverted to digital casts and instantly stored in the Planmeca Romexis® software in standard STL format. "In Planmeca Romexis, the patient's digital cast and CBCT image can be superimposed for further visualisation and planning", says Ms Helianna Puhlin-Nurminen, Vice President of Digital Imaging and Applications division at Planmeca Oy. "The combined data set provides an artefact-free model about the patient's dentition including bone, crowns and soft tissue, which can be utilised in implant planning and surgical guide manufacturing. For orthodontic purposes, the STL data can be further analysed in the Planmeca Romexis 3D Ortho Studio module, where dental cast analysis and orthodontic treatment plan can be done in 3D. The Romexis database stores all digital casts together with other patient images. The 3D model scans can also be utilised in orthognatic surgery planning and for follow-up of the patient's treatment progress."

Planmeca ProFace® - the face in 3D

Planmeca ProFace is a unique 3D face photo system available for the whole Planmeca ProMax 3D family. Designed to fulfil the most diverse diagnostic needs of today's maxillofacial and dental professionals, the system generates both a 3D face photo and a CBCT volume in just one imaging session. This combination gives the medical or dental professionals an effective tool for planning operations, for communicating with colleagues and patients and for documenting follow-up images. The 3D photo can also be acquired separately in a completely radiation-free process.

Planmeca ProMax 3D family - an optimal volume size for all imaging needs

The Planmeca ProMax 3D family is an intelligent, all-in-one X-ray unit range designed to obtain complete information on patient anatomy in the minutest detail. The units provide digital panoramic, extraoral bitewing, cephalometric, and 3D CBCT imaging, 3D face photos and now also 3D model scans. The wide selection of volume sizes allows optimising the imaging area according to a specific diagnostic task – always complying with the best practices of dentistry and the ALARA (as low as reasonably achievable) principle to minimise radiation.

All patient images are conveniently processed in a single software suite, Planmeca Romexis.
