Planmeca announced today that its Planmeca Emerald intraoral scanner has been accepted for use with the ClearCorrect clear aligner system. Both the Planmeca Emerald and Planmeca Planscan can now be smoothly integrated into dental practices’ clear aligner workflow.
The Planmeca Emerald is a next-generation scanner designed to quickly deliver images with excellent detail, and now with this integration, dentists simply scan the upper and lower arches in occlusion and instantly export the scans, uploading them securely to ClearCorrect’s online doctor’s portal. The scans are then used to create ClearCorrect’s discreet, custom-made plastic trays that gradually straighten teeth without metal wires or brackets.
In a statement released by Planmeca, ClearCorrect CEO Jarrett Pumphrey explained, “We believe that doctors should be free to choose the intraoral scanner that works best for their practice. Like Planmeca, we believe in supporting open standards like the STL format, rather than locking customers down to particular systems. Together, we’re happy to bring effective orthodontic solutions within reach of more doctors and patients.”
