Highlight features of the 2D x-ray family

Patient positioning : Get the best for what is the backbone of reproducable image quality 

Safe operation, easy positioning, high image quality – this best describes the Dentsply Sirona technology behind the occlusal bite block. The patented bite block automatically establishes the correct inclination of the patient's head, positions the patient rapidly in the occlusal plane and together with the 3 point head fixation and firm handles ensure a stable position. Unnecessary correction scans can thus be avoided.

2D Panoramic Imaging: revolutionary technologies

Even though 3D X-rays are increasingly becoming established in a growing number of dental practices, in many cases 2D imaging still has a rightful place, to a great extent due to radiation hygiene. It is a core component of modern dental diagnostics. In terms of improvements in image quality, the options available in 2D technology are far from exhausted. 2D X-ray devices from Dentsply Sirona score highly in daily handling thanks to technical innovations for unparalleled sharp images and operation that leaves nothing to be desired.

Cephalometric imaging

Orthophos SL 2D, Orthophos XG 3D ready and Orthophos XG 5 offer the capability to install a cephalometric arm at any time. And to be sure it fits in your X-ray room, the arm can be mounted either on the right side or left side of the unit. (Orthophos XG 5 only left side)

Ceph programs that cover all orthodontic needs

Using a dedicated sensor, you get lateral and symmetrical p.a. or a.p. as well as carpus images.

ASTRA

The ASTRA software algorithm considerably improves the quality of 2D panoramic and Ceph images.

Automatic positioning

The occlusal bite block greatly simplifies patient positioning. This results in ideally positioned X-ray images every single time.

ALARA

The best image quality at the lowest possible dose - following the ALARA principle.

FAQs

What are the system requirements?

The requirements actually follow those for the image processing software, Sidexis 4. For more details please see Sidexis 4 system requirements

I already have Sidexis XG. Do I have to switch to Sidexis 4 in order to use an Orthophos SL ?

The Orthophos SL works exclusively with Sidexis 4. But data migration from Sidexis XG to Sidexis 4 is very easy. With the Orthophos XG units, you can continue working with Sidexis XG if desired, although we recommend the swap to Sidexis 4 for the full digital experience with the latest tools.

Can I upgrade a 2D-only Orthophos with a 3D sensor?

The Orthophos XG 3D ready and the Orthophos SL 2D allow a 3D upgrade. The other models (Orthophos XG 3 and Orthophos XG 5) do not offer this option.
