Easily upgrade from 2D to 3D

Planmeca ProMax® – a future-ready equipment investment

Planmeca ProMax® 2D is designed with upgradeability in mind. Its modular structure allows easy conversion to different imaging modalities, while software-driven SCARA technology is extremely flexible, allowing limitless imaging possibilties.

Whether you’re upgrading your 2D unit to 3D, or adding a cephalometric arm, the Planmeca ProMax offers accomodations. Individual options can be installed before delivery or added later, making Planmeca ProMax the most versatile all-in-one X-ray unit on the market.

All the imaging programs you need

Our Planmeca ProMax® X-ray unit offers the widest variety of imaging programs available – easily meeting all your clinical needs. You can also select the correct exposure formats to minimize the radiation dose for all types of patients and diagnostic purposes.

Panoramic imaging

In addition to the Standard panoramic program, the following programs are offered:

Interproximal panoramic program: generates an image, where interproximal teeth contacts are open. Primarily used for caries detection.

Orthogonal panoramic program: produces an image with clearly visible alveolar crest for improved diagnostics. Ideal for periodontal imaging and implant planning.

Extraoral bitewings

The Bitewing program uses improved interproximal angulation geometry. The result is a bitewing image pair with low patient dose and excellent diagnostic quality.

Sinus imaging

The Sinus programs provide a clear view of the maxillary sinuses.

Horizontal and vertical segmenting for panoramic program

With horizontal and vertical segmentation, exposure can be limited to the diagnostic region of interest. Patient dose is reduced by up to 90% compared to full panoramic exposure.

TMJ imaging

The TMJ imaging programs produce lateral or posteroanterior views of open or closed temporomandibular joints. The imaging angle and position can be adjusted to correspond to the anatomy of each individual patient.
The Lateral-PA TMJ program captures lateral and PA views on the same radiograph, while the multi-angle TMJ programs produce three different angles of radiographs from either the lateral or PA view.
