Planmeca ProMax® 3D is a product family consisting of exceptional all-in-one units. With three different types of three-dimensional imaging – as well as panoramic, extraoral bitewing and cephalometric imaging – these intelligent products can meet all your maxillofacial imaging needs.
Unique 3D combination – an industry first
We’re the fi rst company to combine three different types of 3D data with one X-ray unit. The Planmeca ProMax® 3D family brings together a Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) image, 3D face photo and 3D model scan into one 3D image – using the same advanced software. This 3D combination creates a virtual patient in 3D, helping you with all your clinical needs.
• Ideal resolutions and optimal balance between image quality and patient dose – always complying with the ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) principle
• The pioneering Planmeca Ultra Low Dose™ protocol enables CBCT imaging with an even lower dose than traditional 2D panoramic imaging
• Optimal volume size and location for every clinical need
• Special imaging protocols for dental and ENT applications
• Certified for use with the suresmile system for orthodontics
• Intelligent solutions for the best image quality
The precise, free-flowing, computer-controlled SCARA (Selectively Compliant Articulated Robot Arm) arm construction can produce any movement pattern required. This enables accurate and reliable volume positioning and volume diameter adjustment, reducing the amount of radiation your patients are exposed to.
New 120 kV tube voltage
120 kV tube voltage enables optimised image quality for challenging targets – reducing artefacts and ensuring higher contrast images.
Optimised imaging modes for different needs
• Low dose mode captures an image with a minimal dose of radiation. Ideally suited for orthodontic, pediatric and sinus studies. Voxel size 400 or 600 μm
• Normal mode is the best choice for most common imaging needs. Voxel size 200 μm
• High defi nition mode is designed for imaging of small objects, such as ear bones. Voxel size 150 μm
• Braces protocol offers optimised exposure settings for imaging patients with brackets. Voxel size 150 μm
• High resolution provides more detail, when necessary. Voxel size 100 μm
• Endodontic mode offers the best resolution with the smallest size. Voxel size 75 μm
ROI for higher resolution images
The ROI (Region of Interest) reconstruction function can generate a new small voxel volume from the image data of a previously taken large voxel volume. This enables a more precise diagnosis without the need for an additional radiation dose for the patient.
• Effortless patient positioning and unmatched comfort
• True all-in-one X-ray units not only for 3D imaging, but 2D panoramic and cephalometric imaging as well
• Easy to use for a smooth workfl ow
• ProTouch™ Desktop for remote control panel operation on the imaging workstation
• Planmeca Romexis® software
• Mac and Windows support
Planmeca ProMax® 3D s is an ideal 3D unit for capturing small details. It is perfect for single implant, endodontic, and wisdom tooth cases.
Volume sizes Ø50 x 80 mm Ø50 x 50 mm Stitched volume 90 x 60 x 80 mm
Chinese hospital chose Planmeca ProMax® 3D s
“I bought the Planmeca ProMax® 3D s system in September 2010, so I have been using it for over 2 years now. Factors influencing my decision were Planmeca’s good reputation and quality-price ratio. For me, it is also important that everyday performance is excellent and if necessary, the after sales service works quickly. I use my Planmeca 3D s system for various cases – for diagnosis in oral and maxillofacial surgery, for implantology, for diagnosis of periodontal and dental pulp diseases, and for orthodontics. The image quality is very clear, which makes diagnosis very easy with the excellent Planmeca Romexis® software. In implant cases, Planmeca ProMax 3D s is very important for my preparation phase. The data I get from the image of the bone structure and thickness makes the operation easy and safe for the customer. Planmeca ProMax 3D s really adds value to my work as I can perform many different kinds of tasks quickly and efficiently”, Sun Zhizong, DeanDonggang City Stomatology Hospital, Liaoning, China.
Planmeca ProMax® 3D Classic
The Planmeca ProMax® 3D Classic imaging sensor covers the whole dentition area, so the unit gives a clear view of the mandible and maxilla.
Volume sizes Ø50 x 80 mm Ø50 x 50 mm Stitched volume 90 x 60 x 80 mm
New extended volume size for the Teeth program
• Extended volume size that increases the diameter from Ø80 x 80 mm to Ø110 x 80 mm
• Captures a larger diagnostic area without increasing the patient dose
• Full dentition scans with the Planmeca ProMax® 3D Classic Teeth program
• Single rotation scans without stitching
“We decided to purchase a Planmeca ProMax® 3D Classic 8×8 for our clinic as we wanted to start taking our own CBCT images and not have to send our patients elsewhere to have their 3D X-rays taken. In such cases, there is always the risk that the treatment process will suffer due the patient’s own lack of activity. Now we have our own radiologist and things have gone very smoothly. We also have two surgeons working with us, as we do a lot of implant treatments and treat also difficult endodontic cases”, Pekka Nissinen, GPD, West Vantaa Dental Clinic, Finland
Planmeca ProMax® 3D Plus
The newest member in our 3D family, Planmeca ProMax® 3D Plus, offers a wide variety of different volume sizes and is a great choice for any imaging need.
Volume sizes Ø160 x 90 mm Ø160 x 50 mm Ø90 x 90 mm Ø90 x 50 mm Ø70 x 70 mm Ø70 x 50 mm Ø40 x 70 mm Ø40 x 50 mm
More information in a single image
“I use the device for different kinds of treatment planning; mainly implant cases, but also high-risk wisdom tooth surgery. In my view, a key benefit of the Planmeca ProMax 3D Plus is the possibility of displaying the entire mandible – including the ascending mandibular ramus and mandibular joint – in a single image. I also use the images for diagnosis of foreign body location, apical variances and inflammatory processes in the jaw area. CBCT provides much better diagnostic options for screening for infectious foci in patients with unclear symptoms or certain systemic diseases. Questions related to orthodontic treatments of impacted and displaced teeth, for example, can be easily solved on behalf of colleagues”.
Low radiation exposure with adjustable volume sizes
“What I really like about the unit is that I can select the volume according to the required image. The radiation exposure for patients is thus kept as low as possible. I use low-dose scans particularly with orthodontic diagnosis. The layer lights are especially useful when centring the image volume. Operating and adjusting the unit is easy. What’s more, the transition from analogue to digital control went well. Since the patients stand upright within the unit, positioning them is much easier than with the predecessor of the CBCT model (with patient bench), without having any problems with motion blur.
The new device is also much more pleasant for the patients because there is no feeling of constriction.”, Dr. Dirk Ladig Oral surgery practice, Hoyerswerda, Germany
Planmeca ProMax® 3D Mid
Thanks to its wide volume size selection, Planmeca ProMax® 3D Mid handles a wide range of diagnostic tasks without compromising best practices.
Volume sizes Ø200 x 170 mm Ø200 x 100 mm Ø200 x 60 mm Ø160 x 170 mm Ø160 x 100 mm Ø160 x 60 mm Ø100 x 100 mm Ø100 x 60 mm Ø80 x 80 mm Ø80 x 50 mm Ø40 x 80 mm Ø40 x 50 mm
“In our new dental clinic, we have been using Planmeca ProMax® 3D Mid for six months now – and we are really satisfied with it. We chose the unit after a thorough analysis of what the market was offering. We needed an imaging unit that could provide a wide range of FOV choices, the possibility to take panoramic images and cephalometric shots, and last but not least, software that could run natively on Mac OS, because our IT infrastructure was entirely built on Apple computers. The only unit that fulfilled all of these requirements was Planmeca ProMax 3D Mid.”
For every clinical application
“We love using it for taking panoramic images, preliminary treatment planning, 3D scans, wisdom teeth extractions and implant surgery. With Planmeca
Romexis® – its dedicated software – we can virtually place the exact dental implants we are going to use by choosing them from the integrated 3D implant library. This feature works amazingly well.”
3D magic with the latest technology
“The machine and the software work seamlessly together: they are fast, reliable and easy to use. The 3D rendering is an incredibly powerful tool for us – for visualising the real bone morphology of the patients, and for the patients themselves to understand their clinical situation and the treatment we are offering them. So Planmeca Romexis can become a really effective communication tool. For this reason, we adopted also the Planmeca ProFace® option. By superimposing a 3D scan of the patient’s face and a CBCT X-ray image, we can show our clients an easy-to-understand image, in which they can really recognize themselves. Even today, this looks like magic for many of our patients!”, Dr Carlo Pizzo & Dr Gioia Amico, A&P Clinic, Cittadella, Italy

“I was the first Planmeca ProMax® 3D Max user in Italy and have been using it for about three years now. Before that, I used Planmeca ProMax® 3D Classic 8×8 for 2 years. And I’ve been using Planmeca equipment since 1995 because of their image quality, their reliability, and the fast maintenance service. I really enjoy working with Planmeca ProMax 3D Max. I have used it for every possible dental case, including all aspects of implantology, as well as endodontics, examining alterations of the bone structure, wisdom tooth extractions, supernumerary teeth and more. In ENT cases, I have used
the unit for the study of the paranasal sinuses and facial
One of the most remarkable advantages is the possibility to choose the image quality and therefore to optimise the patient dose. The volume selection is complete, the imaging programs are easy to use and patient positioning is effortless”, Dr Gazzerro, Studio Gazzerro, Genoa, Italy.
