What makes our units so unique?

The Direct Conversion Sensor 

extraoral X-ray units

The Direct Conversion Sensor (DCS) has redefined the standard of panoramic imaging. X-rays are converted directly into electrical signals—unlike conventional systems, there are no signal losses due to light conversion. This means an improved image output for you. The result is images with a uniquely high level of sharpness, even at an extremely low dose.

The patented occlusal bite block

Position the patient with the patented occlusal bite block. The Orthophos intuitively determines the correct tilt of the head for optimal positioning and informs you through correlating symbols and colors how to adjust accordingly with just the press of the up or down arrow—no Frankfort Horizontal required.

Flexible Field of Views 

When it comes to volume size, dose and image quality, every clinical case has individual requirements. The Orthophos family combines image quality and versatility. Choose the appropriate volume for your needs: From the focused Ø 5 cm x 5.5 cm volume to the Ø 11 cm x 10 cm volume, which displays the wisdom teeth and upper respiratory tract.

Each volume can be adjusted accordingly in three different modes to adapt to each patient’s unique situation:

  • High Definition (HD)
  • Standard Definition (SD)
  • Low Dose (Low)

Low Dose – CBCT in the dose range of a 2D image

The imaging optimized Low Dose mode with a dedicated filter allows for the Imaging of dense structures, like bone, at a greatly reduced dose.

This makes Low Dose an efficient option for many clinical tasks:

  • Sleep apnea therapy
  • Tooth position localization in Orthodontics
  • Post-op implant position check

Sidexis 4 Software

Whether 2D or 3D, it is best to view images in their native software. The modern and highly intuitive imaging software, Sidexis 4, supports clear diagnostics. With its award winning user interface, it promotes an easy workspace and clear navigation, saving valuable practice time. The clear platform also creates a basis for next-level patient communication, increasing trust and treatment acceptance.
