Planmeca Emerald from Digital Dental: "The crown jewel of intraoral scanning"
Now available from Digital Dental imaging specialists: the brand new Planmeca Emerald intraoral scanner, claimed as the "crown jewel of intraoral scanning". Its speed and superior accuracy makes it ideal for orthodontic and restorative planning, and taking digital impressions has never been easier.
Perfect for a digital implant workflow, the Emerald scans the proposed implant site which is then overlaid onto the CBCT scan for implant planning; at this point a surgical guide can also be designed if required. The model and guide can then be milled or 3D printed. Following the implant healing period, the Emerald scans the implant site for its emergence profile and then does so again with an implant scan body in place. This captures the data needed for accurate, screw-retained implant placement.
Images are almost instantly produced with a richer, more vibrant natural colour palette, and the open STL data can be sent to CAD/CAM software for orthodontic and implant treatment planning, dental labs, or 3D printers. There are no annual license fees, no click fees and no data storage fees.
On the practical side, the lightweight scanner has automatic fog prevention for continuous scanning and reduced scan times, and its USB-3 ‘Plug and play’ capability means the scanner can be shared between surgeries. The scanner’s smaller, seamless, autoclavable tips ensure enhanced patient comfort and highly efficient infection control, and its replaceable cord helps extend the Emerald’s working life.
