From visualizing the sinuses to capturing the smallest bone structures in the ears, the Planmeca ProMax 3D Plus CBCT unit is a 3D imaging powerhouse, providing an extended view of the maxillofacial region, beyond the dentition. Designed to support panoramic, cephalometric and 3D imaging applications — with an endodontic imaging mode that captures small anatomical details in high resolution — the ProMax 3D Plus is a multifaceted 3D unit that delivers the ultimate in diagnostic accuracy and control. Plus, with Planmeca CALM technology for removing artifacts caused by movement, combined with Ultra Low Dose™ 3D images at dramatically reduced patient doses, this all-in-one CBCT unit offers a positive patient experience from start to finish.

  • Seamless. Designed with a unique SmartPan™ system that allows 2D and 3D images to be taken with the same sensor
  • Accessible. Equipped with face-to-face patient positioning for standing, sitting and wheelchair accessibility
  • Innovative. Boasts patented Selectively Compliant Articulated Robot Arm (SCARA) technology for unrestricted movement during rotational maxillofacial imaging
  • Versatile. Features a maximum field of view volume size of Ø20x10 cm with a single scan
  • Compatible. Supports Mac OS/PC functionality, with its Planmeca Romexis® software capable of managing an entire CAD/CAM workflow


1. What are the differences between the Planmeca ProMax 3D CBCT units?

The biggest difference between each of the CBCT units lies in the 3D sensor size, which affects the array of volume sizes that can be taken with a particular unit. The Planmeca ProMax® 3D Max, for example, with the largest sensor size, produces all volume sizes for diagnosing the entire maxillofacial region — from the smallest special cases to the entire head.

Another difference is related to the various dental specialties and applications. The Planmeca ProMax Mid and Max units, for instance, are all suitable for ear, nose and throat (ENT) imaging.

However, it’s important to note that the similarities outweigh the differences, and each Planmeca ProMax 3D CBCT unit comes equipped with the following key features and benefits:

  • Planmeca Ultra Low Dose imaging technology
  • Planmeca ProFace® 3D photo capturing software
  • Advanced 2D imaging
  • Model scanning and endodontic imaging mode
  • A patient-friendly, easy-to-use design

2. How often do Planmeca ProMax 3D CBCT units require quality assurance or maintenance?

Planmeca ProMax 3D CBCT units do not require extensive maintenance, thanks in part to the autoclavable patient support components that ensure optimal infection control.

Annually, or after every 10,000 exposures, the electrical exposure parameters should be examined to ensure proper operation of the CBCT device. There are different regional legislations and guidelines on X-ray device quality assurance, and Planmeca — along with your Henry Schein equipment specialist — can offer recommendations for ensuring those guidelines are met.

3. How does Planmeca Ultra Low Dose 3D imaging work?

The Planmeca Ultra Low Dose 3D imaging protocol can be used with all voxel sizes and imaging modes — from the smallest field of view to the largest. When applied, it alters the exposure values by lowering the milliamperes and shortening the X-ray pulse needed for each frame. This not only lowers the patient dose but also results in a faster rotation time, making the scan less prone to patient movement artifacts.

With Planmeca Ultra Low Dose 3D imaging, a key advantage is that you won’t need to take fewer frames or use a smaller rotation angle to lower the patient dose — making it ideal for use in a wide range of clinical cases and applications.
