Planmeca Introduces Planmeca Emerald™ – The Next Gen Intraoral Scanner

The Planmeca Emerald is a lightweight, ergonomically designed scanner that quickly captures vibrant intraoral color images in real-time. Its compact, slim design provides a comfortable feel and superior control. Dual function controls allow the clinician easy, single handed operation of the software. “Smart” heated scanner tips are autoclavable and eliminates fogging enabling continuous scanning and use tracking.

One of the most impressive aspects of the Planmeca Emerald is undoubtedly, its speed and ease of use. Every dental professional has the ability to capture accurate digital impressions ranging from single-tooth to full arch within minutes capturing individual images for patient or laboratory communication. The scanner uses a multi-color laser-based system for brilliant color reproduction.

The Planmeca Emerald is built on an open system platform creating smooth integration with other equipment within the office. The “Plug N’ Play” capability with USB-3 connection allows the clinicians within the office to effectively use the Planmeca Emerald without concerns over Wi-Fi connections. The portability enables sharing between operatories and multiple PCs and because it includes Planmeca Romexis a server-based solution is available. A replaceable cord reduces the need to replace the Emerald scanner due to wear and tear of the electrical cord thereby extending the life of the scanner.

As always, customers can take advantage of the only equipment manufacturer that provides education, training and support. Planmeca Emerald is manufactured in the USA by E4D Technologies, a leader in 3D CAD/CAM hardware and Software solutions for the Dental market. The launch of the newest technology also brings a new Planmeca Loyalty program.  Through this program current customers have access to special pricing, updates and more. Customers can get a quote at

Planmeca Emerald simplifies data exchange and connectivity within the clinician office or with the lab. Collaboration with labs becomes worry-free with the use of Planmeca Romexis software and open STL files. The Planmeca Emerald gives clinicians the freedom of practicing dentistry the way that best suits their practice. Clinicians that prefer to scan only can send files to third parties without additional click or subscription fees. If they choose to offer same-day dentistry to patients, they can add a mill.
