Occlusal bite block in 2D

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 Frankfurt plane, and makes it easier to maintain a stable position. Unnecessary correction scans and long waiting times can thus be avoided.


Inuitive operation

The operation of the occlusal bite block also couldn't be simpler. With the help of the symbols and colors on the display of the X-ray device, practitioners have all the information required for optimal fine-tuning of the device. Illuminated arrows indicate in which direction the unit must be moved to achieve ideal head inclination. The device stops automatically once the correct position has been reached.

Positioning with the Orthophos SL is very easy for our team. The many tools, such as automatic light localizers, illuminated height adjustment buttons, and the intuitive program selection let us work efficiently while giving us a very good image quality.

The occlusal bite block in the Orthophos SL

A high degree of image sharpness results not only from the use of modern technologies when scanning, but also from the best possible stabilization of the patient during X-rays. The Orthophos SL guarantees both and provides practitioners with semi-automatic assistance.
