WIN System Now Accepts Planmeca Emerald Scans

Dentistry Today


Lingual orthodontics correct misaligned teeth by using a fixed brace bonded on the inner surface of the teeth. DW Lingual Systems’ WIN lingual braces work like conventional fixed braces, with full tooth control and movement, but are invisible from the outside.

Now, the WIN System accepts files from the Planmeca Emerald intraoral scanner. After scanning the upper and lower arches in occlusion, WIN certified doctors can send the data to WIN via the secure Planmeca Romexis Cloud service.

“We are thrilled that the users of our brand new intraoral scanner can now benefit from this integration and enjoy a smooth orthodontic workflow. The extremely lightweight and fast Planmeca Emerald offers exceptional patient comfort, and so do the WIN lingual braces with their flat design that is perfectly adapted to the tooth shape. So it’s a great match,” said Jukka Kanerva, vice president for Planmeca’s dental care units and CAD/CAM division. 

“On the basis of Planmeca Emerald intraoral scans, we can fabricate excellent WIN appliances thanks to the high precision of the data acquisition. In our opinion, the dimensional stability of the 3-D scans is equal to a perfect silicon impression,” said Dirk Wiechmann, managing director of DW Lingual Systems.
