Planmeca Emerald intraoral scanner accepted by orthocaps

UAE, May 29, 2018

Finland-based Planmeca, a leading dental equipment manufacturer, has announced that its Planmeca Emerald intraoral scanner can now be used for producing orthocaps aligners.

Ortho Caps manufactures and markets transparent orthocaps aligners for teenagers and adults. These are individually adjusted clear plastic trays that exert gentle pressure on the teeth that need to be straightened, said a statement from the company.

Planmeca Emerald users can produce orthocaps aligners through a completely digital process, which saves time and improves patient satisfaction, it said.

After scanning the upper and lower arches as well as the bite of the patient, the scans can be sent directly to Ortho Caps for the designing and manufacturing of orthocaps aligners, it added. 

Both Planmeca and Ortho Caps are constantly working on new ways to improve user experience and to offer the smoothest possible workflow both now and in the future, it said. 

Ville Salonen, manager for Planmeca’s Orthodontic product line and business development, said: “We are very happy to work with Ortho Caps that has a long history of producing aligners and many pioneering innovations, such as the TwinAligner system.”

“Their system is one of the most advanced solutions on the clear aligner market and with our integrated workflow, the users can really reap the benefits of digitalisation,” Salonen said.

Dr Wajeeh Khan, founder and managing director of Ortho Caps – Germany, said: “We are pleased to announce the successful validation of the Planmeca Emerald intraoral scanner for the submission of new orthocaps cases as well as for our treatment evaluation workflow.”

“I personally had the opportunity to visit the Planmeca manufacturing facility in Helsinki and was greatly impressed by the high product quality standards as well as the dedication of the company´s staff, which is so important in manufacturing quality products,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
