New Planmeca ProMax 3D ProFace system enables safer and faster facial surgeries.

The Planmeca ProMax 3D ProFace unit acquires patient's facial 3D photo in a radiation-free process giving the medical or dental professional opportunity to plan operations and document the follow-up images.

Planmeca is first to introduce an integrated 3D unit producing a realistic 3D face photo in addition to traditional digital maxillofacial radiography. One single scan generates both a 3D photo and a CBVT volume. Alternatively, the 3D photo can be acquired separately in a completely radiation-free process: the lasers scan the facial geometry and the digital cameras capture the colour texture of the face.

The 3D photo visualises soft tissue in relation to dentin and facial bones, providing an effective follow-up tool for maxillofacial operations. As Planmeca ProMax 3D ProFace acquires both a CBVT image and a 3D photo in single scan, the patient position, facial expression, and muscle position remain unchanged, resulting in perfectly compatible images. Careful preoperative planning, where the medical professional can study the facial anatomy thoroughly using Planmeca Romexis software, facilitates a detailed operation and enhances the aesthetic results.

"This new product clearly demonstrates our groundbreaking R&D and best practices in imaging. Planmeca provides the most advanced tools - 3D imaging units and software - for visualising patient anatomy making treatment planning and follow-up for orthodontic, maxillofacial and aesthetic surgeries more precise, faster and safer," explains Ms Helianna Puhlin-Nurminen, Vice President of Digital Imaging at Planmeca Oy.
