Planmeca’s full range of open CAD/CAM solutions for dentists and dental technicians includes the dental unit integrated intraoral scanner Planmeca PlanScan®. The scanner’s unique integration with Planmeca dental units guarantees a smooth workflow, as real-time scanning data is now immediately available from the chairside tablet device. Scanning can also be controlled from the dental unit’s wireless foot control for hands-free operation.
The ultra-fast and accurate Planmeca PlanScan® can now be easily integrated with any digital Planmeca dental unit. Thanks to the dental unit’s Full HD tablet device, the dental team has constant and optimal access to live scanning data. This allows them to focus on the treatment area without any distractions. The scanner also provides practical sound guidance to ensure optimal data capture.
What also sets Planmeca PlanScan apart from other scanners is that it can be conveniently controlled from the dental unit’s wireless foot control, leaving the user’s hands free for scanning and patient treatment at all times. The foot control allows easy toggling between prep, opposing and buccal views, so that the dentist can focus on scanning without interruptions. Hands-free operation also guarantees impeccable infection control.
Planmeca PlanScan has been designed for an efﬁcient workﬂow – it is used just like any other dental instrument and shared effortlessly between different users. The plug-and-play scanner can also be easily installed in different dental units and different rooms. The ﬂexible licensing system enables different CAD/CAM work phases (scanning, designing and manufacturing) to be performed simultaneously by different users.
“This is a truly innovative product that guarantees a smooth and effortless chairside workflow and lets dentists concentrate on their patients. The system is built on our Planmeca Romexis® software platform – the first software in the world combining CAD/CAM and X-ray imaging. This means that all images and scans are conveniently available through one user interface. Together with our other Planmeca CAD/CAM™ solutions, Planmeca PlanScan contributes to better patient care and helps to increase the clinic’s productivity”, says Mr Jukka Kanerva, Vice President for Planmeca’s Dental Care Units and CAD/CAM.
