If you’ve ever attended a dental conference, spoken to colleagues, or researched dental X-ray equipment online, you’re probably familiar with the name Planmeca. After all, Planmeca has earned the reputation of being a global leader in healthcare technology and is the largest privately-held manufacturer of professional dental equipment in the world.
Dentists recognize the quality of Planmeca’s ProMax line of 2D and 3D imaging systems as well as the software solutions that accompany them. With a wide variety of configurations, these systems are designed to adapt to nearly any practice or imaging need – ranging from a baseline 2D panorex to full 3-in-1 mid-to-large field of view (FOV) CBCT systems with dedicated pan and ceph attachments.
Average Cost of a New Planmeca ProMax
With this large variety of models to choose from within the Planmeca ProMax family, your imaging needs will impact how much you’ll pay. Like any other technology, there are entry-level and higher-end models to scale to your needs. Below, we’ll share the average cost of a Planmeca ProMax by the three modality types: panorex, pan/ceph, and CBCT.
● 2D Panorex:
A baseline 2D panorex model, such as the Planmeca ProMax S3, with no ceph attachment, will range from $20,000 to $30,000 for a new unit. Many baseline models from Planmeca are designed to be upgradeable so you can add a ceph attachment or upgrade to CBCT 3D later on. This reduces your upfront cost and allows your imaging system to scale as your imaging needs change.
● 2D Pan/Ceph:
As suggested above, a baseline 2D panorex can be upgraded to include a ceph attachment for scans of the side of the face. This is particularly useful for orthodontic work as well as neck, face, and jaw treatments. Alternatively, if you know you need a ceph attachment, you can purchase a Planmeca pan/ceph model. The price you can expect to pay for a Planmeca ProMax 2D pan/ceph ranges from $35,000 to $50,000.
● 3D CBCT:
The price you can expect to pay for a new 3D unit will greatly depend on your desired FOV size. Planmeca ProMax 3D models are available in a wide range of FOV sizes, from 4x5cm to 16x16cm, classified as mid-large FOV. These FOV sizes can be collimated down to the lowest dosage required to give you the view you need on a per-client basis. A medium FOV is most versatile to give dental professionals a view of both arches, the full dentition. A medium FOV such as the Planmeca ProMax Classic, with no ceph attachment, will range from $45,000 to $80,000. Planmeca ProMax 3D units can also be upgraded with a ceph attachment as your imaging needs change.
