“The Planmeca ProMax machine produces less radiation than conventional x-ray technology that is often used,” commented Dr. Canfield, “To give you a comparison, my machine emits less radiation than the amount a person would be exposed to walking outside or eating a banana.”
The Planmeca ProMax machine incorporates autofocus positions to get perfect images every time and reduces the need for multiple takes and patient discomfort. With clearer images, problem areas can be detected much earlier. The machine also recognizes patients’ anatomy to calculate the placement of bitewings, pans or full mouth series, which is the foam pad that must be placed between the teeth, helping to reduce gag reflex for the patient.
Romexis software, which works with Mac OS and Windows, is upgradable, lowering the out-of-pocket cost for patient X-rays, which is recommended at least once a year. Also, this machine may be used with a cadcam machine to mill crowns. In the future, this machine will be upgradable to be used to take cephalometric and perform implants.
“Our patients will really save because this technology allows us to catch small things faster before they get to bigger, more expensive fixes,” said Dr. Canfield.
The Planmeca ProMax machine will also be introduced to Dr. Canfield’s second location, Sandfly Family Dental, opening in the Norwood Market in September. For more information on the Planmeca ProMax machine, visit http://www.planmeca.com/
