How Planmeca ProMax 3D Helps Your Practice and Your Patients

Planmeca ProMax 3D equipment, available as a refurbished system from Renew Digital, provides integral imaging capabilities for dentists across many specialties. This unit also comes equipped with 2D panoramic X-ray imaging, Selectively Compliant Robotic Arm (SCARA) technology, and several 3D cone beam fields of view. These are just some of the things that make Planmeca ProMax 3D so diverse and adaptable. Below are some of the most common dental specialists who use Planmeca ProMax 3D equipment for diagnostic and treatment purposes.

Airway and Sleep Specialists

Treatment of sleep disorders is a unique dental specialty of its own. Dentists and medical providers often work together to ensure that a patient receives the correct diagnosis of a sleep disorder and an appropriate treatment plan to address it. The Planmeca ProMax 3D makes it possible to locate the precise spot to target treatment through a process called airway visualization.

Patients with serious sleep disorders have often visited numerous providers in the past and left feeling frustrated. They can finally get real help thanks to the airway feature of the Planmeca ProMax 3D.


The endodontic visualization feature within Planmeca ProMax 3D makes it possible for you to see the tiniest anatomical details and abnormalities in the teeth, gums, and jaws of your patients. This allows you to determine whether your patient has infected pulp that requires a root canal or other types of infections that would benefit from immediate treatment. Having immediate access to detailed CBCT images can help minimize the discomfort patients may feel with an oral infection as they wait to receive a definitive answer on the cause and plan for treatment.

Implant Dentistry

Placing a dental implant requires exact precision, which would not be possible without equipment like the Planmeca ProMax 3D. The software library includes more than 40 implants available from different manufacturers to help guide you through every phase of dental implant surgery. This level of precision can shorten each appointment for the patient, something they will appreciate when having to schedule multiple appointments to complete the dental implant procedure.


The combination of Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT), dedicated panoramic imaging and optional cephalometric imaging with the Planmeca ProMax 3D system means that you can provide safer and more affordable imaging options for your orthodontic patients. The Ultra Low Dose CBCT option allows you to minimize patient radiation during cone beam exams while providing the details you need to locate bone around roots, visualize impacted and/or non-erupted teeth, and determine areas of orthodontic concern.

The more accurate your images are at the beginning of the patient’s treatment, the faster and more accurate the actual treatment will be. Finishing treatment even a few months earlier than expected makes a big difference for patients who may not have felt too excited about getting braces in the first place.

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ)

Even the National Institutes of Health (NIH) recommends that dentists obtain images for patients struggling with this painful condition using equipment with CBCT capability. In a 2013 report, it indicated preference for this evaluation method due to the low dosages of radiation emitted and its highly accurate spatial resolution properties. While knowing the cause of TMJ is not necessarily important, you do need to see where the problem originates to understand how it affects your patient. The 3D capabilities of this Planmeca unit isolate the damaged areas from the healthy areas to enable you to begin treatment planning.
