Planmeca announces new dental operating light

The Finnish dental equipment manufacturer Planmeca has introduced a new dental operating light to expand its product portfolio. The Planmeca Solea™ dental operating light combines optimum visibility with complete adjustability.

The Planmeca Solea™ operating light gives perfect visibility over the entire treatment area with adjustable brightness and colour temperature. The advanced LED technology and mirror optics of the light guarantee a large illumination field, which provides excellent visibility to every corner of the treatment area minimising the need to adjust the light head during treatment. 

“Our new operating light, Planmeca Solea, is a fantastic addition to our product family. In dental care every detail matters, and this is exactly why we wanted to bring this great solution to the market,” stated Jukka Kanerva, Vice President of Planmeca’s Dental care units and CAD/CAM division. 

The uniform light intensity ensures minimised shadows regardless of the distance from the treatment area, and the sharp edges of the light beam make the light eye-friendly for the patient. The special composite mode of Planmeca Solea enables safe use of composite materials and prevents pre-polymerisation effect.

“This operating light has been developed and designed for users of all sizes, sitting or standing. The exceptionally long arm ensures optimal working conditions for operations of all kinds. Planmeca Solea truly holds to its promises with its many adjustable features,” Mr. Kanerva said.

The user interface is placed on the innovative handles of the light for easy control. The detachable and autoclavable handles can also be washed in a washer-disinfector. The pioneering handles combined with the dustproof light capsule and seamless one-piece back cover guarantee optimal infection control. The light can also be connected to the Planmeca Romexis® software to get reliable information on the use of the light.

Planmeca will be presenting Planmeca Solea at IDS 2017. Deliveries will start later this year.
