Imaging console In modern dentistry, the demand for implant surgery is steadily growing, which has created a need for more advanced X-ray imaging systems.
To meet the needs of modern surgical dentistry and to supply clear, dependable imaging in a three-dimensional format with limited patient radiation dose, Planmeca ProMax 3D Max utilises Cone Beam Volumetric Tomography (CBVT) technology.
This innovative, versatile, and dynamic imaging device will open up new possibilities for on-site dentists. Planmeca ProMax 3D Max complies with a multitude of diagnostic requirements: those of endodontics, periodontics, orthodontics, implantology, as well as dental and maxillofacial surgery, and TMJ analysis.

Planmeca ProMax 3D Max produces high-resolution volumetric studies of the mandible and maxilla for analysing the available bone structure, the location of the mandibular canal, and the correct position for the implant. Pre-surgical planning reaches a new level of precision.

ImagesThird molars, maxillary cuspids, supernumerary teeth, and impactions challenge the clinician to identify the tooth”s orientation. By using Planmeca ProMax 3D Max, all angles and orientations become clearly visible. Imaging any region of interest in the maxillofacial region is effortless, as the volume sizes include everything from full maxillofacial image size to the smallest size intended for single tooth imaging. Planmeca ProMax 3D Max studies provide full visualisation of all classes of orthodontic malocclusion. This is highly advantageous in orthodontic planning, as time is saved and patient radiation dose reduced. Planmeca ProMax 3D Max provides the image data in the correct anatomic 1:1 ratio, with no need to correct for geometric magnification. Planmeca ProMax 3D Max also provides high-resolution TMJ studies for true and accurate evaluations of the joint arthritides, condylar morphology, and the condyle-fossa relationship.

The ROI (Region of Interest) reconstruction function can generate a new small voxel volume from the image data of a previously taken large voxel volume. This enables more precise diagnosis without producing any extra dose for the patient.

Adjustable volume size


Planmeca ProMax 3D Max complies with a multitude of diagnostic requirements: those of implantology, endodontics, periodontics, orthodontics, as well as dental and maxillofacial surgery, and TMJ analysis. It is also an excellent tool for diagnosing ear, maxillary sinus, and respiratory tract diseases. Planmeca ProMax 3D Max provide volumes sizes for every clinical application with possibility to adjust volume position according to acquired scout images.

The 3D image volume range covers everything between single tooth and whole facial region. The smallest 42 x 30 mm volume is intended e.g. for molar area where the largest 230 x 260 mm volume size gives overview of the whole facial area e.g. for orthodontic applications. For every volume size, different resolution modes are available: high, normal and low dose resolutions.

Planmeca ProMax 3D Mid offers different imaging modes for different needs.
This allows the operator to easily select the optimal volume size, volume position, resolution and dose to produce the correct clinical outcome at the lowest possible patient dose.
Different programs are set up for different clinical imaging requirements to best harness the flexibility of this system and to ensure the best possible workflow. The low dose mode can be used for example in orthodontic studies. A special high definition program is developed for imaging of small size ear bones.

Planmeca Romexis is a comprehensive software solution for acquisition, viewing, and processing of 3D radiographs, 3D photos and intraoral surface scans. The powerful combination of these modalities provides the most accurate information of patient anatomy for different needs. Planmeca Romexis software offers specially designed tools for implantologists, endodontists, periodontists, maxillofacial surgeons and radiologists.
Romexis is available for PC & MAC OS platforms, and is fully DICOM compliant.

Implant Planning A unique SmartPan imaging system uses the same 3D sensor as used for panoramic imaging. This eliminates need to change sensors. The SmartPan system automatically calculates 9 different panoramic curves in 2 mm shifts from the panoramic exposure data and one layer where the sharpness is automatically adjusted for all regions. The user can browse between the panoramic images and select the most suitable for diagnosis after the exposure.
This is a low dose 2D application.

The panoramic exposure is optimised only to denture area. By adjusting image height and width the image area and thus patient dose can be significantly reduced. In a combined panoramic and TMJ program both temporomandibular joints will be showing in the image in an optimal and adjustable projection angle.

ProFace Planmeca's optional ProFace is a unique CBVT imaging upgrade to deliver integrated 3D face scanned imaging. Designed to fulfil the most diverse diagnostic needs of today”s maxillofacial and dental professionals, it acquires patient”s facial 3D photo in a radiation-free process giving the medical or dental professional opportunity to plan operations and document the follow-up images. One single scan generates both a 3D photo and a CBVT volume. Alternatively, the 3D photo can be acquired separately in a completely radiation-free process: the lasers scan the facial geometry and the digital cameras capture the colour texture of the face.

The 3D photo visualises soft tissue in relation to dentin and facial bones, providing an effective follow-up tool for maxillofacial operations. As Planmeca ProMax 3D ProFace acquires both a CBVT image and a 3D photo in single scan, the patient position, facial expression, and muscle position remain unchanged, resulting in perfectly compatible images. Careful preoperative planning, where the medical professional can study the facial anatomy thoroughly using Planmeca Romexis software, facilitates a detailed operation and enhances the aesthetic results.

The motorized patient support further improves the already easy patient positioning as the imaging arm automatically drives itself to the correct height. It takes stitching of several basic volumes into a new level. The patient positioning system keeps the patient stationary while the unit drives from imaging position to another.

Range of images The unique design allows an exceptional range of image sizes and formats with field sizes of up to 30 x 27 cm (11.8 x 10.6 in.) making digital lateral radiographs of the whole skull very easy. With the soft tissue filter applied in the Planmeca Romexis imaging software the images can be viewed with or without the filter.
Model The image data can also be used for ordering Planmeca ProModel, a patient specific physical model that serves as a beneficial tool for preoperative planning of advanced implant, oral and maxillofacial surgeries.
Range of movement

The Planmeca ProMax platform”s unique SCARA technology (Selectively Compliant Articulated Robot Arm) enables free image geometry formation. Planmeca”s patented, computer-controlled SCARA robotic arm can produce any movement pattern required, ensuring perfectly accurate and reliable image volume positioning and enabling image volume diameter adjustment.
