Planmeca Start Scanning kit
Ready to make elite restorations with the complete Planmeca solution? The Planmeca Start Scanning kit introduces three popular LM Instruments for the restorative team. The Planmeca Start Scanning kit includes:
The top favorite flexible explorer has an angulation similar to a Gracey 11/12. The Flexplorer is well-suited for diagnosing subgingival calculus and probing deep pockets.
Dark Diamond Plastic Instrument, Anterior
The LM Dark Diamond coating reduces the stickiness and allows for pleasant and precise restorative instrumentation. The Dark Diamond Plastic instrument gives unparallel control for placing, packing and contouring composite.
The bent blade with 2.0 mm ends enables access around the tooth and packing retraction cord into the gingival pocket.
All three instruments include the secure full grip of medical-grade silicone of the LM-ErgoSense handle.

Q: How do I care for my new LM Dental instruments?
A: Please follow general instrument maintenance procedures as well as cleaning and sterilization unit manufacturers’ instructions. Use LM-Servo® instrument cassettes to protect the instruments and avoid injuries from the sharp tips. Ideally, LM Sharp Diamond™ instruments would be processed separately from other instruments and products to eliminate the theoretical occurrence of particle cross contamination. You can find more information on LM Dental instrument maintenance on the Care and Maintenance Guide page at https://shop.planmecausa.com/pages/care-and-maintenance-guide.
Q: How long should I expect my LM SharpDiamond™ to last?
A: LM Sharp Diamond™ instrument will not last forever. Eventually, and very gradually, they will become dull. When you feel that your LM™ Sharp Diamond instrument has become dull, it is time to replace it with a new instrument. The overall lifespan of LM Sharp Diamond™ instruments should be similar in length to your current instruments, but during their useful life they never need to be sharpened.
Q: Is sharpening of the LM SharpDiamond™ instruments required?
A: No. Do NOT sharpen or clean SharpDiamond™ instruments with an abrasive tool. They have a breakthrough, ultra-hard coating that keeps them razor sharp.
