  • Planmeca Romexis® 5.2 - This release adds a new module to the Planmeca Romexis software, Model Analyzer, and streamlines specialty workflows. Model Analyzer is designed to allow direct capture of intraoral scans for dental model measurement, visualization and analysis for treatment planning or future use. Improvements to the imaging and imaging workflows are said to create a streamlined process for clinicians. An enhanced implant library now features fixation pins for fully edentulous patients and new and updated implants and sleeves.

  • Planmeca PlanCAD® 6.0.5 - New features include Contralateral Copy for replicating contralateral dentition or design. HD Snapshot enables the user to take a high-definition picture with the Planmeca Emerald scanner and the PlanScan® DASH is said to increase the scanning rate of your Planmeca PlanScan for faster image capture.

  • Planmeca Emerald™ Slim Line Scanning Tip – The Planmeca Emerald Slim Line Tip is 27 percent thinner than the standard tip. The Planmeca Emerald Slim Line Tip features the same hygienic, autoclavable tip and SMART functionality with usage tracking and anti-fog system. The slimmer scanning tip is said to be ideal for patients with smaller mouths or compromised dentition. It also reportedly enhances posterior reach and elevates the patient’s experience through easy capture of interproximal areas.
