Planmeca’s new dental care unit offers functionality and flexibility for every dentist

Press release   •   Oct 29, 2019 07:00 UTC

The small, swift and clever Planmeca Compact i3 dental care unit is a smart choice for any dentist looking for a space-saving and functional solution. Combining great ergonomics, a smooth workflow and ease of use, this truly flexible unit allows both right and left-handed dental professionals to work comfortably in any position.

Planmeca Compact™ i is Planmeca’s most widely sold dental unit range with over 50,000 deliveries to dental clinics around the world. The tried, tested and proven product line is now growing with a new swift and small member to meet the needs of all dental professionals, but especially those of large clinics and dental chains.

The flexible movement range of the unit’s delivery arm brings both ergonomic and space-saving benefits to dental clinics. Planmeca Compact™ i3 can be switched from right to left-hand use in just 10 seconds simply by moving the instrument console − without having to move the operating light. This makes it a practical solution for all clinics where several dentists use the same dental unit and space is limited.

Due to its slim design, Planmeca Compact i3 fits into any clinic layout. With plenty of working space around it, the unit allows the dental team to work comfortably whether sitting or standing. The small instrument console can be positioned above the patient, making it easier to maintain an ergonomic position throughout the day. The unit’s swivel function can be used to make further fine adjustments according to one’s preferences. The unit is suited for both two and four-handed working techniques.

Designed to simplify everyday dentistry, Planmeca Compact i3 is both easy to learn and easy to use. The intuitive touch panel guides the user in their preferred language, and the simplicity of the unit’s design makes external infection control procedures easy and straightforward to perform. The unit can also be customised to individual preferences and upgraded with the features of one’s choice, such as an integrated intraoral scanner.

To fit the needs of large clinics, the one-of-a-kind Planmeca PlanID™ sign-in system allows dentists to access their personal settings instantly from any dental unit with a simple flash of a card. This helps clinics utilise their equipment flexibly, since dental units no longer need to be assigned to specific users. All usage information is stored in the Planmeca Romexis® software – this way, large clinics and chains can benefit from knowing when, how and by whom the unit has been used.

“We believe that great ergonomics, ease of use and a smooth workflow should be necessity, not a luxury. Just like all our dental unit models, the new Planmeca Compact i3 offers all these advantages and more,” says Jukka Kanerva, Vice President for Planmeca’s Dental Care Units & CAD/CAM division.
