Ultra-fast intraoral scanner
Planmeca PlanScan is the first dental unit integrated intraoral scanner for 3D digital impressions. No need for uncomfortable impressions, you are now able to train your nurse to take digital impressions quickly and easily. This means you no longer have to store impression materials or impressions; you simply store the digital image within your practice management software. The open software means the digital image can also be sent to your laboratory for design and milling.
Dental Unit Integration
The ultra-fast and accurate PlanScan can now easily be integrated into your digital Planmeca dental unit. Thanks to the new chairside integrated full HD tablet device, you have constant and optimal access to live scanning data. This allows you to focus on clinical work in the treatment area without any distractions. For an even smoother workflow, scanning can also be controlled from the dental unit’s wireless foot control, leaving your hands free for scanning and patient treatment at all times. You can use the foot control to easily toggle between prep, opposing and buccal views, so that you can focus on scanning without interruption. Hands free operation also guarantees impeccable infection control.
Easy and flexible use
Planmeca PlanScan has been designed for an efficient workflow – it is used just like any other 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 allows simultaneous use on multiple workstations during different CAD/CAD workflow steps.
