The compact and extremely light Planmeca Emerald™ intraoral scanner makes intraoral imaging easy for the dentist and highly comfortable for the patient. The small size and seamless design of the scanner guarantee a great patient experience.

“This revolutionary product makes chairside workflow effortless. The accuracy of the impressions meets the most demanding needs with a fully integrated colour scanning option,” commented Jukka Kanerva, Vice President of Planmeca’s Dental care units & CAD/CAM division.

The lightweight structure and user-friendly form of the scanner ensure optimal ergonomics. With the active antifog feature of the scanner’s tip mirror, visibility is always clear. It is an easy and simple plug-and-play solution which makes it easy to share between operatories.

Infection control of the scanner is impeccable due to the autoclavable tip and seamless design. The dental unit integration enables hands-free operation with the foot control. The scanner is compatible with Planmeca Romexis® and Planmeca PlanCAD® Easy software suites for constant access to real-time scanning data.

“Small in size, light in weight, outstanding speed, and superior accuracy, also in full natural colours. I’m confident that with these features Planmeca Emerald will become one of the most precious tools in the world of intraoral scanning,” Mr. Kanerva concluded.
