Planmeca’s Emerald and PlanScan intraoral scanners have been accepted for use with the ClearCorrect clear aligner system. According to Planmeca, these devices can be integrated smoothly into any practice’s clear aligner workflow. After scanning the upper and lower arches in occlusion, users can instantly export the scans and upload them safely and securely to ClearCorrect’s online doctors’ portal.

“We always want to ensure that doctors have the best possible orthodontic tools and systems to work with. We are very pleased that both Planmeca Emerald and Planmeca PlanScan intraoral scanners are accepted for use with ClearCorrect aligners,” said Jukka Kanerva, vice president of Planmeca’s dental care units and CAD/CAM division.

“We believe that doctors should be free to choose the intraoral scanner that works best for their practice,” said Jarrett Pumphrey, ClearCorrect CEO. “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.”
