We have recently added PLANMECA’s ProMax 3D to our office. There are several benefits to you, our valued patient.
Among them are:
• Convenience: All images taken here in our office.
• Safety: Much lower dose than CAT scan
• Accuracy: Case planning using the latest technology
• Peace of mind: Your case has optimal chance of success
We chose the ProMax after carefully considering many different cone beam machines. We believe
there are many benefits that your patients will receive from this new addition to my practice.
As we have advanced in our practice, we have come to realize that there is no such thing as a routine case.
Prior to in-office cone beam machines, the only real alternative was sending patients to have CAT scans
taken. These scans, while diagnostically helpful, have a much higher dose of radiation and are inconvenient
for patients. The PLANMECA ProMax 3D has a dose that is many times less than a CAT scan. The beam
only exposes the area necessary for the case. CAT scans and other cone beam machines routinely expose
areas of the patient’s anatomy that are unnecessary for our purposes.
The ProMax 3D will allow us to get diagnostic information on each patient that will ensure the best possible
outcome. We will be able to use the information from the ProMax to determine bone health, site
assessment, and augmentation needs. Then, working in conjunction with you and excellent dental labs,
we will determine insertion angles to account for occlusion and, if needed, surgical guides to complete
the case for you to restore.
