What Does Planmeca® PlanScan™ Do?
The Planmeca® PlanScan™ is an innovative intraoral scanner that uses CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing) technology. While CAD/CAM technology has been used in dentistry for many years, the PlanScan takes it to the next level. PlanScan is the only intraoral scanner that uses blue laser technology to produce sharper, more detailed images of both teeth and tissue. This means that our dentists can more easily provide detailed and accurate treatment plans.
PlanScan also offers several other benefits, including:
• Heated mirror head to prevent fogging
• Powder-free scanning
• Thunderbolt™ technology for transmitting data to a laptop almost instantaneously
• Detailed images help produce clinically accurate dental restorations in our office
• Dissipated heat, which allows us to quickly make a continuous scan without interruptions
Once your scan is complete, our dentists can use additional Planmeca technology to produce same-day dental restorations that are designed to look almost exactly like your natural teeth and provide natural-like support and functionality in your bite.
