Unique 3D combination – an industry first

We’re the first company to combine three different types of 3D data with one X-ray unit. The Planmeca ProMax® 3D family brings together a Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) image, 3D face photo and 3D model scan into one 3D image – using the same advanced software. This 3D combination creates a virtual patient in 3D, helping you with all your clinical needs.




Solve the challenge of movement artefacts with Planmeca CALM™

Planmeca is the first company in the dental industry to introduce motion artefact correction, Planmeca CALM™ (Correction Algorithm for Latent Movement), to end users. With this new algorithm, patient movement during CBCT acquisition is no longer a reason for retakes. Planmeca CALM™ will not only save time for clinicians but also guard patients from unnecessary exposures.

The algorithm works with all volume and voxel sizes. Using it will add only 30–60 seconds to the overall reconstruction time. Planmeca CALM can be applied after an image has been captured, but it can also be selected preventively before exposures. This ensures that volumes are automatically corrected already before they are accessed in the Planmeca Romexis® software. Planmeca CALM is now available as an update for all Planmeca ProMax® 3D units. Ask your dealer about upgrading!

Pioneering Planmeca Ultra Low Dose™ protocol. An even lower patient dose than in panoramic imaging

Planmeca ProMax® 3D units offer a unique Planmeca Ultra Low Dose™ imaging protocol, enabling CBCT imaging with an even lower effective patient dose than standard 2D panoramic imaging. This pioneering imaging protocol is based on intelligent 3D algorithms developed by Planmeca and offers a vast amount of detailed anatomical information at a very low patient dose.

Best image quality with optimal dose

Best image quality

with optimal dose

Pulsed X-ray radiography reduces the patient dose considerably and creates a stroboscopic X-ray effect. Together with the short rotation scan it eliminates artefacts, contributing to the exceptional image quality.

ROI for higher resolution images

The ROI (Region of Interest) reconstruction function can generate a new small voxel volume from the image data of a previously taken large voxel volume. This enables more precise diagnosis without the need for an additional radiation dose for the patient.

Best image quality with optimal dose

SCARA technology

SCARA technology

The precise, free-flowing, computer-controlled SCARA (Selectively Compliant Articulated Robot Arm) arm construction can produce any movement pattern required. This enables accurate and reliable volume positioning and volume diameter adjustment, reducing the amount of radiation your patients are exposed to.

Scout images and 2D views help positioning and can even be used in preliminary diagnosis.

Easy imaging with ready-designed protocols

  • Imaging protocols designed for specific diagnostic tasks, areas, or target sizes
  • Appropriate volume size, resolution, and exposure values
  • Automatic selection and adjustment of the target position
  • Reduced volume sizes for child patients to prevent unnecessary radiation

Optimised imaging modes for different needs

  • Low dose mode takes the image with a minimal dose of radiation. Suitable for child patients in orthodontic studies. Voxel size 400 µm
  • Normal mode is the best choice for most common imaging needs. Voxel size 200 µm
  • High definition mode is designed for imaging of small objects, such as ear bones. Voxel size 150 µm
  • High resolution gives more detail, when necessary. Voxel size 100 µm
  • Endodontic mode offers the best resolution with the smallest size. Voxel size 75 µm

2D and 3D imaging with one sensor

Our advanced SmartPan™ imaging system uses the same 3D sensor also for 2D panoramic imaging. 

2D SmartPan™
Unique panoramic imaging

  • A unique system for 2D imaging
  • Uses the same 3D sensor for 2D panoramic imaging, eliminating the need to change sensors 
  • Calculates 10 different panoramic curves in 2 mm shifts, automatically adjusting the sharpness to one layer
  • Users can browse between panoramic images and select the most suitable one for diagnosis

Advantages of 3D model scanning

Digital models save space

3D digital models are stored in the Planmeca Romexis® database in standard STL format, which reduces the need to make or maintain physical plaster casts. 

Create your virtual patient

The scanned 3D model can be superimposed on to CBCT data, creating a virtual patient and helping you with all your clinical and treatment planning needs. The combined data set provides an artefact-free model of your patient’s dentition including bone, crowns and soft tissue. This offers valuable new options for implant planning, surgical guide manufacturing, orthodontic purposes and orthognathic surgery. 

Endodontic imaging mode

Endodontic imaging mode for Planmeca ProMax® 3D family

We are proud to introduce a new imaging mode that is specially designed for endodontic studies. The new imaging mode is available for all new Planmeca ProMax® 3D family units and provides perfect visualisation of even the finest anatomical details.

Thanks to our intelligent Planmeca AINO™ noise removal and Planmeca ARA™ artefact removal algorithms, the result is noise-free and crystal-clear images. The new imaging mode is ideal for endodontics and other cases with small anatomical details, such as ears.
