Planmeca unveiled its new PlanScan with optional color capability and optimized scanning speed in the latest software update – PlanCAD 5.7. When activated for color, PlanScan gives dental professionals a new tool to accurately capture and visualize the oral environment in full color and boasts increased speed for the ultimate chairside solution.
Color at the Change of a Tip
Planmeca’s innovative color tip technology and activation kit allows dentists to upgrade and activate their existing PlanScan scanners to color. The new autoclave color tips are available in the standard size and are interchangeable with all PlanScan digital scanners. Once a scanner has been activated for color, the user can switch back and forth between all tips (B&W Standard, Portrait, and Landscape or Color Standard) on that scanner. “There is nothing like it on the market today. With a simple 5.7 software update, the revolutionary tip design allows me to scan in color without the need to purchase a completely new scanner. Economically, it makes sense,” Said Dr. Mike Moroni. “Clinically, full color enhances the detail and margin definition, assisting the clinician to distinguish between tissues and restorative materials to better facilitate patient treatment planning.”
Scan 40% Faster than Ever
Planmeca PlanCAD 5.7 provides users with significantly improved working speed and allows users to process 3D scans faster than ever before. Powerful optics, rapid data processing, portability and network capability optimize the restoration process with speed, ease, and accuracy.
“We are very proud to offer an affordable and innovative upgrade to PlanScan that will not only add value to the clinician’s practice but also improve patient treatment planning. This upgrade demonstrates Planmeca’s commitment to continually improving our product by providing new capabilities without the burden of buying new equipment,” said Jukka Kanerva, President of Planmeca CAD/CAM group.
All components of the Planmeca FIT System are distributed exclusively in North America by Henry Schein Dental. Visit the Planmeca website for a video demonstration of the new full color scanning software
