David R. Edelson, DMD, on the Planmeca Emerald™ S

David R. Edelson, DMD

I have been a full-time practicing general dentist for the past 35 years. My practice is a high-tech, comprehensive office that offers implants, endodontics, orthodontics, and dental sleep medicine as well as many other aspects of dentistry. We employ CAD/CAM technology, cone-beam computed tomography, digital radiography, and various lasers for soft- and hard-tissue applications. When I needed to purchase an intraoral scanner, I decided to invest in Planmeca's new Planmeca Emerald S because the open architecture is the best in the industry. The complete integration with Planmeca Romexis® software makes harnessing the power of CAD/CAM, digital radiography, smile design, orthodontics, and implant planning as easy as possible.

1. The Planmeca Emerald S has a field of view that offers a comprehensive picture of the patient's oral environment, and the shade assistant feature simplifies the shade-matching process through improved color uniformity, removing the guesswork when matching restorations. 2. This digital intraoral scanner combines lightning fast image capture with excellent diagnostic capabilities all in one lightweight, easy-to-use unit. 3. There are no additional fees to send files to a laboratory or any other third party, and the Planmeca Emerald S has one of the lowest total costs of ownership in the industry.

How has this product benefitted your workflow? The accuracy facilitates well-fitting single-visit restorations, and the open architecture improves treatment planning.

How does the Planmeca Emerald S improve efficiency? Its improved scanning algorithm and other new features allow it to scan twice as fast as its predecessor.

What would you tell an interested clinician? Investing is a no-brainer. Both this scanner and the accompanying Planmeca product line will transform your practice for the better.
