ClearCorrectPlanmeca, Helsinki, Finland, announced that its new Planmeca Emerald intraoral scanner is now accepted for use with the ClearCorrect aligner system, joining the Planmeca PlanScan® intraoral scanner.

After scanning the upper and lower arches in occlusion, scanner users can export the scans and upload them securely to ClearCorrect’s online doctor’s portal.

“We believe that doctors should be free to choose the intraoral scanner that works best for their practice,” says Jarrett Pumphrey, CEO of the Round Rock, Tex-based ClearCorrect. “Like Planmeca, we believe in supporting open standards like the STL format, rather than locking customers down to particular systems. Together, we’re happy to bring effective orthodontic solutions within reach of more doctors and patients.”

In December, the company announced that the Planmeca Emerald and Planmeca PlanScan intraoral scanners were now accepted for use with the ClearCaps clear aligner system.
