Weighing just 183 grams with ergonomic styling, the Planmeca Emerald is designed to make full-color intraoral scanning easy for the dentist and comfortable for the patient. The active antifog feature on the scanner’s tip mirror ensures clear visibility, according to the company. As a plug-and-play solution, it can be shared among operatories. Its autoclavable tip and seamless design satisfy infection control concerns. Plus, its foot control and integration with the dental unit enable hands-free operation. And, the Emerald is compatible with the Planmeca Romexis and Planmeca PlanCAD Easy software suites for constant access to real-time scanning data. Deliveries will start in the third quarter of 2017, Planmeca estimates.
