Planmeca ProMax Imaging Unit

2D to 3D when you're ready

Category: OPG (Orthopantomogram)

  • The Planmeca ProMax OPG with Ceph

The Planmeca ProMax  is a complete unit for maxillofacial imaging. Their design and operation principles are based on the latest scientific research and technological innovations. The units are capable of fulfilling even the most demanding needs of modern-day panoramic dental imaging.

Fully Upgradable from 2D to 3D

Designed with upgradability in mind. The modular structure allows easy conversion to different imaging modalities.

Child Mode

The units have a child mode that allows imaging at lower doses by reducing the imaging area and exposure values.

Planmeca was established in 1971 and is a Finnish manufacturer of high-tech dental equipment, such as 3D and 2D digital imaging devices, dental units, CAD/CAM solutions and software. Planmeca offer dental clinics a completely digital solution, based on the capability to network all digital dental equipment with one software platform.

Open Patient Positioning

The open-face architecture of Planmeca ProMax offers an unrestricted view that helps you, position patients, accurately. This can be done either using the unit’s autofocus feature or manually, with a triple laser beam system accurately indicating the correct anatomical alignment points.

User-friendly Control Panel

With an interface that guides users through their work, Planmeca ProMax 2D panoramic dental imaging units always support a smooth imaging experience. Pre-programmed sites and exposure values for different image types and targets both save time and allow you to fully focus on your patients.

Adjustable Focal Layer

the imaging geometry matches the shape of the focal layer with the patient’s anatomy – resulting in clear panoramic images.

Automatically Adjusted Exposure Values

Planmeca's unique digital Dynamic Exposure Control (DEC) feature automatically adjusts the exposure values for each individual patient based on their anatomic structure and bone density. DEC improves the quality of both panoramic and cephalometric images with more consistent brightness and contrast.
