A complete maxillofacial
Easy patient positioning
Open patient positioning and side entry minimize errors caused by incorrect patient positioning, allowing you to monitor the patient freely from both the front and side. Side entry allows easy access for all patients – standing or seated. Patient positioning is assisted by our triple laser beam system, which indicates the correct anatomical positioning points.
User interface provides guidance
The full-color graphical user interface provides clear texts and symbols to guide you through your procedure. Settings are logically grouped and easy to understand, speeding up imaging and allowing you to focus on your patients.
Autofocus – for perfect panoramics every time
The unique Autofocus feature automatically positions the focal layer using a low-dose scout image of the patient’s central incisors. Landmarks in the patient’s anatomy are used to calculate placement, enabling practically error-free patient positioning and dramatically reducing the need for retakes. The result is the perfect panoramic image, every time.
Robotic arm technology
Planmeca ProMax® features highly advanced and exclusive robotic SCARA (Selectively Compliant Articulated Robot Arm) technology – providing flexible, precise and complex movements required for rotational maxillofacial imaging.
User benefits for SCARA
The precise free-flowing arm movements allow for a wider variety of imaging programs not possible with other X-ray units with fixed rotations. SCARA offers superior imaging capabilities for both existing and future technologies.
All the imaging programs you need
Our Planmeca ProMax® X-ray unit offers the widest variety of imaging programs available – easily meeting all your clinical needs. You can also select the correct exposure formats to minimize the radiation dose for all types of patients and diagnostic purposes.
In addition to the Standard panoramic program, the following programs are offered:
Interproximal panoramic program: generates an image, where interproximal teeth contacts are open. Primarily used for caries detection.
Orthogonal panoramic program: produces an image with clearly visible alveolar crest for improved diagnostics. Ideal for periodontal imaging and implant planning.
The Bitewing program uses improved interproximal angulation geometry. The result is a bitewing image pair with low patient dose and excellent diagnostic quality.
The Sinus programs provide a clear view of the maxillary sinuses.
Horizontal and vertical segmenting for panoramic program
With horizontal and vertical segmentation, exposure can be limited to the diagnostic region of interest. Patient dose is reduced by up to 90% compared to full panoramic exposure.
The TMJ imaging programs produce lateral or posteroanterior views of open or closed temporomandibular joints. The imaging angle and position can be adjusted to correspond to the anatomy of each individual patient.
The Lateral-PA TMJ program captures lateral and PA views on the same radiograph, while the multi-angle TMJ programs produce three different angles of radiographs from either the lateral or PA view.
New opportunities for tomography
Planmeca ProMax® 2D tomography programs provide accurate tomographic information for the analysis, planning and follow-up of implant and surgical procedures.
The tomography programs include a wide range of manual and automatic cross-sectional and longitudinal imaging programs and their combinations. Combined tomography is highly valuable in implant planning, integrating cross-sectional and longitudinal views on the same radiograph. Both transversal and longitudinal views show the same position in two perpendicular projections, giving three-dimensional information on the target with the same magnification.
Easy upgrade from 2D to 3D
Planmeca ProMax® – future proof and a great investment
Planmeca ProMax® 2D is designed with upgradeability in mind. The unit’s modular structure allows easy conversion to different imaging modalities, while the software-driven SCARA is extremely flexible, allowing you to benefit from new imaging projections.
Whether you’re upgrading your 2D unit to 3D, or adding a cephalometric arm, Planmeca has the right solution for you. Individual options can be installed before delivery or added later, making Planmeca ProMax the most versatile all-in-one X-ray unit available.
