ProMax 3D Classic
Genuine all-in-one unit
Planmeca ProMax® 3D units are designed to obtain complete information on patient anatomy in the minutest detail. These intelligent, multipurpose X-ray units provide digital panoramic, cephalometric, and 3D imaging as well as 3D photo. Thanks to unique, technologically advanced design, any Planmeca ProMax® can be upgraded into a 3D CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) unit. As a result, one X-ray unit can meet virtually any need in maxillofacial imaging.
Full range diagnostics
Both Planmeca ProMax 3D s and Planmeca ProMax 3D X-ray units comply with a multitude of diagnostic requirements: those of endodontics, periodontics, orthodontics, implantology, dental and maxillofacial surgery, and TMJ analysis. The images can be taken anywhere within the maxillofacial region.
With Planmeca ProMax® 3D, study volume sizes can be selected to meet the diagnostic needs without excess radiation outside the area of interest. The Ø80 x 80 mm image size is optimum for most diagnostic applications
that require whole dentition, mandible, and maxilla in the same study volume. The Ø80 x 50 mm volume can be used for single views of the mandible or maxilla, and the small 40 x 50 mm volume is intended for molar area studies or for planning 3rd molar extractions. The basic volumes can also be stitched together to generate a larger view of patient anatomy. A special high definition program is developed for imaging of small size ear bones. The unit also offers a special program for scanning impressions and plaster casts.
Planmeca Romexis® is a comprehensive software solution for acquiring, viewing, and processing 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.
Sharing the results
Studies can be quickly converted into multi-page printouts or handed out on the free Planmeca Romexis® Viewer media. Cases can be seamlessly transferred to mobile devices or partner clinics that also use Planmeca Romexis. DICOM standard compliance guarantees that images can be processed with 3rd party software or shared via hospital PACS.
Convenient 3D diagnosis
The Planmeca Romexis 3D rendering view gives an immediate overview of the anatomy and serves as an excellent patient education tool. The images can be instantly viewed from different projections or converted into panoramic images and cross sectional slices. Measuring and annotation tools such as nerve canal tracing assist in safe and accurate planning of treatment.
Implant planning made easy
Planmeca Romexis allows easy planning and verification of implant placement using realistic implant models from several manufacturers. A soft tissue surface scan and crown design can be imported and superimposed with 3D X-ray data providing a perfect environment for implant planning. The virtual treatment plan can be used to place an order for a Materialise Dental SurgiGuide® drill guide that can be used to deliver your treatment plan exactly as designed.
Planmeca Romexis® Surface module allows viewing and processing surface models captured using the Planmeca ProMax 3D impression scan program or imported in STL format from other sources such as desktop scanners. Before and after model comparisons can be performed and the degree of change displayed in a color map. Surface models can be superimposed with CBCT data providing soft tissue information to aid in implant planning for example
SmartPan™, unique panoramic imaging
A unique SmartPan™ imaging system uses the same 3D sensor also 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.
Planmeca ProFace™ – a unique 3D facial photo option
Planmeca ProFace™ is a unique 3D facial photo option available for the whole Planmeca ProMax® 3D family*. A Planmeca 3D X-ray unit completed with Planmeca ProFace generates both a 3D photo and a CBCT volume in one imaging session. Alternatively, the 3D photo can be acquired separately in a radiation-free process: the lasers scan the facial geometry and the digital cameras capture the colour texture of the face.
Designed to fulfil the most diverse diagnostic needs of today’s maxillofacial and dental professionals, Planmeca ProFace gives the medical or dental professional the opportunity to plan operations and document follow-up images.
Safer and faster facial surgeries
The 3D photo visualises soft tissue in relation to dentin and facial bones, providing an effective follow-up tool for maxillofacial operations. As both a CBCT image and a 3D photo are generated in one imaging session, 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.
Simple, effortless patient positioning
Patient positioning is made incredibly easy .
- The intuitive graphical user interface offers preprogrammed target sites and exposure values for different image types and targets.
- Positioning laser and joystick are used for fine adjustment. A scout image can be used to verify correct positioning.
- Full view open patient positioning
- Side entry for easy access; wheelchairs easily accommodated
Pulsed X-ray – increased image quality, reduced patient dose
Pulsed X-ray reduces patient radiation dose considerably and forms stroboscopic X-ray effect which, together with the short rotation scan, virtually eliminates artefacts, contributing to outstanding image quality. The total scanning time is 18 seconds for one volume, but the actual exposure time is only 3 seconds at shortest.
With Planmeca ProMax® Cephalostat cephalometric imaging is easier and more accurate than ever before. By changing the place of the digital sensor the unit switches from panoramic to cephalometric imaging modality. The unit can also be equipped with two fixed digital sensors.
The functionally designed, easy-to-use head support guarantees accurate patient positioning in all cephalometric projections. The carbon fibre ear posts and nasal support are extremely durable, hygienic, and fully transparent to radiation.
Wide range of image sizes
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.
Advanced SCARA Technology
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.
