Hull Veneers and Implants

The Planmeca System

The Planmeca system is a digitally operated system for taking radiographs. Because it uses digital technology the resultant dose to the patient is significantly less than those images that require chemical developing. In addition the system allows many different x-rays to be taken.

These include the panorex, a cephalogram, a posterior anterior radiograph of the head, submental vertex images of the head and different pictures of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) including tomagraphs where one can look at slices of the condyle. It is an essential instrument in terms of diagnosis. It has been upgraded to allow 3-D x-rays for diagnosis and treatment planning for implants, oral surgery and TMJ treatment.
