With another spectacular IDS behind us, it’s time to look back at Planmeca’s outstanding show and presence at the leading international trade fair in the dental industry. At this year’s event, Planmeca was thrilled to present a sensational line-up of trailblazing new products which both expand and complement our range of advanced digital dental equipment.
Leading the way was our lightning-fast new intraoral scanner Planmeca Emerald™ S. Continuing the legacy of its predecessor Planmeca Emerald™, Planmeca Emerald S combines high speed with high precision to provide easy, accurate and even faster digital impressioning. The scanner’s new scanning algorithm, transillumination tip for caries detection and tooth shade assistant ensure an unparalleled and incredibly fast scanning experience.
At this year’s event, Planmeca also brought 3D printing to dental clinics. Designed specifically for dental professionals, Planmeca Creo™ C5 is a high-performance chairside 3D printer which enables fabricating patient-specific surgical guides, dental models and aligner bases reliably and in a single patient visit. Its compact and robust aluminium body makes it ideal for clinics and labs of any size.
The growing Planmeca Viso™ family of next-generation imaging units was expanded with the phenomenal Planmeca Viso™ G5. The newest addition to our range of CBCT imaging devices provides exceptional ease of use through e.g. unique patient positioning and intelligent FOV adjustments. With its many accessible features, low dose imaging protocol and patient movement, noise and artefact correction, Planmeca Viso G5 is set to become a staple of the dental practice.
The intelligent Planmeca Solanna™ Vision made operating lights even brighter – in every sense of the word. In addition to providing superior lighting over the entire treatment area, the cutting-edge operating light comes with, among other things, computerised image processing capabilities and two fully integrated 4K cameras which allow recording treatment sessions for e.g. patient education or consultation purposes.
Planmeca also introduced Planmeca ActiveAqua™, a state-of-the-art water treatment system to complement our new Planmeca Compact™ i5 dental unit. Planmeca ActiveAqua purifies the water entering the dental unit without added chemicals, resulting in clean and soft water that is safe for the dental team, patient and dental unit. The revolutionary system is based on electro-chemical activation (ECA) and is fully integrated into the dental unit – marking the first of its kind in the industry.
Finally, everything came together seamlessly in Planmeca Romexis® 6.0, the latest and greatest version of our powerful all-in-one software. The new software version includes a wide selection of new tools and features alongside a modern user interface. With a particular focus on usability, Romexis 6.0 offers an easier navigation with fewer clicks and a streamlined workflow for all stages of treatment – from image acquisition to diagnosis and treatment planning.
All of our new products were on display at our IDS booth, where visitors were excited to see and get a feel for the technology. Together, these products make an incredible addition to Planmeca’s solutions, which make digital dentistry easy, efficient and thoroughly enjoyable.
