Planmeca, a global leader in dental technology, has announced an expansion of the Planmeca PlanMill® 60 S capabilities, now including the precision milling of titanium custom abutments. This advancement, achieved through collaboration with Elos Medtech and utilizing the Elos Accurate® Pre-Milled Blank Solution, brings a new dimension to chairside milling, enabling clinicians to deliver unparalleled esthetic results with a validated, United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-compliant process, according to a press release from the company.

The comprehensive workflow combines the cutting-edge Planmeca Emerald® S scanner, the intuitive Planmeca PlanCAD® Premium Design software, and the Elos Accurate Pre-Milled Blank Solution seamlessly milled in the Planmeca PlanMill 60 S. This integration empowers dental professionals to plan and execute customized titanium abutments efficiently, enhancing the overall restorative care experience for patients.

"Practices offering chairside milling focus on a positive, convenient patient experience for a differentiated level of dentistry," stated Lou Vodopivec, Planmeca Vice President of Marketing and Education. "This addition to the capabilities of our most versatile mill–the Planmeca PlanMill 60 S–makes it an attractive feature for offices attuned to the benefits of a high-capacity production mill for outstanding restorative care."

The collaboration between Planmeca and Elos Medtech aims to simplify the end-to-end process, providing stability and predictability in outcomes without the need for outsourcing, per the press release. Gavin Sternberg, Director of CAD/CAM and Technical Support at Planmeca, emphasized the economic advantages for clinics, stating, "Clinics choosing a Planmeca understand the benefits of reduced costs and increased revenue. The high degree of personalization with custom titanium abutments is another plus for a practice to deliver exceptional restorative care that is important to our customers."

Elos Medtech, a key partner in this venture, plays a crucial role in ensuring FDA compliance. Søren Olesen, Executive VP of Dental at Elos Medtech, expressed pride in the collaboration, stating, "Our partnership has streamlined the process of manufacturing titanium custom abutments in-house and made it possible for clinics to deliver personalized and esthetically pleasing results to patients, secure in the knowledge they are in full regulatory compliance."

This expansion of the Planmeca PlanMill 60 S capabilities marks a significant stride towards providing dental professionals with an efficient, reliable, and compliant solution for in-house milling, ultimately raising the bar in esthetic dentistry and patient care.
