Planmeca ProFace

3D facial photo option

Planmeca ProFace is a unique option available for the whole Planmeca ProMax 3D family. The upgraded unit captures a realistic 3D face photo in addition to traditional maxillofacial 2D and 3D radiography.
The 3D face photo is acquired in a radiation-free process. Combined with the patient’s CBVT image, the 3D photo is a valuable asset for both pre-operative planning and treatment follow-up. Planmeca ProFace is designed to complete the Planmeca ProMax platform which utilizes the acknowledged SCARA technology and delivers clear 3D imaging with a limited radiation dose.

Planmeca ProMax 3D ProFace

ProFace ImageAcquiring a 3D face photo requires no additional steps in the workflow. The Planmeca ProMax 3D unit equipped with ProFace acquires both a 3D photo and a CBVT image in one rotation. Alternatively, the 3D photo can be acquired separately. The 3D photo is a result of a completely radiation-free process: lasers scan the facial geometry, and digital cameras capture the colour texture of the face. The Planmeca Romexis software then combines the information into a 3D photo that can be analysed as a separate image or as part of a CBVT image.
ProFace image The 3D photo visualizes soft tissue in relation to facial bones and dentine, making it a safe and effective follow-up tool for orthodontic, maxillofacial and aesthetic operations. As the upgraded unit acquires both a CBVT image and a 3D photo in a single scan, the patient position, facial expression, and muscle position remain unchanged. This results in perfectly compatible images. A 3D photo makes the comparison of pre and postoperative situations easy by visualizing the aesthetic results, and is thus a great tool for preoperative planning and treatment follow-up. Furthermore, the medical professionals can study the facial anatomy more carefully to facilitate a more detailed operation resulting in improved outcomes.
