Planmeca Emerald’s seamless, autoclavable and exchangeable tips make infection control measures simple and efficient. The scanner’s two buttons allow it to be operated without touching a mouse or keyboard, and it can even be controlled from a foot pedal when connected to a dental unit. The scanner’s plug-and-play capability allows it to be effortlessly shared between different rooms and laptops. Furthermore, owing to its small size and light weight, the scanner provides superior control and is comfortable for patients, the company said.
According to Planmeca, the scanner has the flexibility to support various workflows. It can be used for a wide range of treatment modalities and offers benefits across several disciplines, such as implantology, orthodontics, prosthodontics and maxillofacial surgery. With open export and import options, regular updates and constant new features becoming available, the company continues to evolve and improve the scanner further. By using a multicolour laser-based system, Planmeca Emerald produces images with a vibrant colour palette for realistic digital impressions that allow dentists to distinguish between hard and soft tissue.
The Planmeca Emerald scanner is part of the Planmeca FIT chairside CAD/CAM system that integrates the entire chairside restorative workflow—from scanning to milling.
