Hot Technologies for Digital Dentistry in 2019


With the holidays quickly approaching, it’s not too early to start thinking about your New Year’s resolutions. Perhaps your resolution is to acquire high-resolution digital images, or maybe 2019 is the year you’ll finally take the leap into CAD/CAM. No matter what your digital goals are, it’s helpful to choose a manufacturer that offers compatible technologies and comprehensive support across a range of products. Planmeca is one such manufacturer.

Here are just a few of Planmeca’s digital products that you might consider adding to your practice in 2019:

Planmeca Viso 

The Planmeca Viso CBCT unit is Planmeca’s latest innovation and combines premium image quality with one of the manufacturer’s largest fields of view (FOV), 30 cm by 30 cm.

Planmeca Viso has 5 key advantages:

1. Live virtual FOV positioning that enables the clinician to see the patient live from the control panel for flexible and exact FOV positioning

2. Freely adjustable volume that provides an unlimited FOV range to cover all clinical needs, from single tooth to full skull

3. Planmeca CALM, which provides new patient movement correction algorithm for perfect results every time

4. Planmeca Ultra Low Dose, which provides an even lower dose than panoramic imaging

5. Planmeca ProCeph option, which allows the Planmeca Viso CBCT to be equipped with the one-shot cephalostat.

Available as an option for the Planmeca ProMax 3D Mid and Max x-ray units, Planmeca 4D Jaw Motion is a CBCT-integrated system allows the user to view mandibular jaw motion in real-time for patients with sleep issues, TMJ, and other condyle-related disorders.

Planmeca Emerald is a plug-and-play device that can be easily transported between operatories. It’s built on an open-system platform, so it seamlessly integrates with other systems making collaboration with labs worry-free.

Planmeca PlanMill 30S

The milling unit is equipped with a rotary axis for milling blocks of choice, and a fixed tool changer for 3 tools. The unit integrates seamlessly with Planmeca’s intraoral scanners and Planmeca Romexis software suit, and it works with a simple touch of a button, as seen in the video below.
