today Greater New York Dental Meeting Nov. 26, 2017

30 exhibitors Greater New York Dental Meeting — Nov. 26, 2017 Planmeca brings ‘CALM’ to your dental imaging By Planmeca Staff n There has been a disruption in the capture of dental images, but remain CALM. Planmeca has the solution. The No. 1 disruptor of image qual- ity for dentists is patient movement. AD During a dentist appointment, a doc- tor may need to take several 3-D X-ray scans to get a single image of diagnos- tic quality. Oftentimes, a child, an individual with special needs or an elderly patient are challenged to remain still. This may result in the patient being X-rayed multiple times, which adds more time to the appointment and frustration for patient and doctor, not to mention the concern of additional exposure to radiation. We created Planmeca CALM™ Here in New York To learn more about Planmeca CALM, stop by the booth, No. 5425. (Correction Algorithm for Latent Movement), a proprietary Planmeca algorithm, to address doctors’ con- cerns over patient movement during a 3-D scan. With Planmeca CALM, our CBCTs can analyze and compen- sate for the slight movement that can occur during a scan to provide improved diagnostic quality images. feature (available for every new Planmeca ProMax® 3-D imaging system) will streamline the imaging process, min- imizing retakes while improving diagnosis. The important benefit to patients: fewer retakes equals less radiation while achieving better diag- nostic images. The addition of this “Dentists evaluating CBCT machines for purchase should focus critically on each manufacturer’s solutions for stabilizing the patient in the machine,” said Dr. Dale A. Miles DDS, MS (Inside Dentistry, May 2017). Planmeca CALM addresses this doctor requirement as it can compensate for slight movement to produce diagnostic quality images. Planmeca CALM is available on new Planmeca ProMax 3D imaging systems or as an upgrade for exist- ing units — check with your author- ized Planmeca dealer. Our advanced imaging systems provide detailed and accurate 3-D scans of patients — children and adults. The Planmeca ProMax 3D family consists of a complete line of CBCT (cone beam computed tomography) imaging systems with optional digi- tal 2-D panoramic and cephalometry in the same unit. Technology is transforming den- tistry. Our Planmeca CALM imag- ing algorithm is the latest example of dental innovation and how we improve patient safety/comfort and a clinician’s workflow.
