Planmeca has made a strong commitment to improve the daily workflow of dentists all over the world. The newest addition to the company’s vast product portfolio is Planmeca Romexis® Smile Design – a powerful and intuitive software program developed for smile designing, visual communication and treatment planning. It revolutionises dentists’ communication with other specialists, dental labs and patients – resulting in a higher rate of case acceptance, as well as an improved realisation of created designs.
Planmeca Romexis® Smile Design allows dentists to design new smiles using a simple 2D facial smile photo and intelligent teeth silhouettes. As is the Planmeca standard, the software enables a workflow that is characterised by its ease-of-use. Designing a smile is a straightforward process – it takes only a matter of minutes and can be done with a few clicks.
All the needed tools for designing warm new smiles are included in Planmeca Romexis Smile Design, as the software allows manipulation of the position, shape and dimensions of teeth – individually or as a group. Planmeca Romexis Smile Design automatically shows the dimensions and ratio of tooth height to width and also provides all the required measurement tools for analysing proportions of the teeth and face. Modifying teeth has never been as easy and designs can be completed precisely according to patients’ distinctive needs. The result is a photorealistic simulation of a patient’s new harmonious smile.
Planmeca Romexis Smile Design is a powerful tool for marketing, patient education and communication. The software actively involves patients in the designing process and allows them to see the full potential of their smiles beforehand. Foreseeable results help to build trust and decrease uncertainty, as patients can rest assured that the outcome of the treatment will match their expectations.
Planmeca Romexis Smile Design also provides dentists with the means to visually and numerically communicate with other specialists and dental laboratories in determining the correct treatment options for patients. Interdisciplinary collaboration improves the quality of care significantly and reduces the possibility of misunderstandings. Designs can be printed out or securely sent to patients, dental labs or other specialists via the Planmeca Romexis® Cloud file transfer service.
Compatibility with CAD/CAM and orthodontic software
Planmeca Romexis Smile Design is more than a visualisation tool, as finalised 2D designs can act as a visual guide or reference for physical mockup designing, as well as final restoration. “Completed smile designs can be easily connected to a 3D reality, as they can be exported on to Planmeca PlanCAD® Easy, Planmeca Romexis® 3D Ortho Studio, or any other orthodontic or CAD/CAM software,” says Ms. Helianna Puhlin-Nurminen, Vice President, Digital Imaging and Applications division at Planmeca. “Planmeca Romexis Smile Design is an invaluable link between treatment planning and implementation, as it revolutionises the way dentists communicate with labs and specialists visually.”
Planmeca Romexis Smile Design is available for Windows and Mac OS. It is sold as a standalone version, as well as a module for Planmeca Romexis® – the comprehensive software platform combining 2D and 3D imaging, implant planning, CAD/CAM work, as well as orthodontic planning.
