Planmeca USA, Roselle, Ill, announced a number of product and technology upgrades.

These upgrades will be launched throughout the fall tradeshow season.

The company will release Planmeca Romexis® 5.2. The update adds a new module to the Planmeca Romexis software, Model Analyzer, and streamlines specialty workflows. Model Analyzer allows 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 intended to create a streamlined process for clinicians. The update will also include an expanded implant library, which now features fixation pins for fully edentulous patients and new and updated implants and sleeves.

Planmeca PlanCAD® 6.0.5 will roll out with new features including Contralateral Copy for replicating contralateral dentition or design. Meanwhile, HD Snapshot will enable users to take a high definition picture with the Planmeca Emerald™ scanner and the PlanScan® DASH will increase the scanning rate of the Planmeca PlanScan for faster image capture.

Another addition to the Planmeca USA product line is the Planmeca Emerald Slim Line Scanning Tip. This tip is 27% thinner than the company’s standard tip, according to a press release from the company. The Planmeca Emerald Slim Line Tip features the same autoclavable tip and SMART functionality with usage tracking and anti-fog system. The slimmer scanning tip is ideal for patients with smaller mouths or compromised dentition, and makes posterior reach and capture of interproximal areas easier.
