Superior Image Quality

Schick AE has a theoretical resolution of 33 lp/mm and a 15 μm pixel size. In combination with dedicated filters and the enhanced dynamic range you get superior X-rays to support your diagnosis.

Robust Design and Durability

Engineered and tested to withstand years of regular daily use, ensuring a long product life cycle thanks to premium materials and high-standard production processes.

Improved USB Data Transfer

The new USB 3 interface allows for accelerated information read-out and optimized data transfer between your sensor and imaging software. Protected connection plugs provide additional durability in daily practice use.

Chairside Imaging

By integrating your  X-ray generator and sensors with your treatment center, you can truly leverage the concept of complete chairside dentistry.

"I have used an array of sensors over the years, but with the new AE sensor from Dentsply Sirona, I saw an immediate improvement in my image quality. With the advanced filtering enhancements and optimizations, I am confident that I am seeing all of the clinical details needed to support an accurate diagnosis."

From a technical point of view, Schick XG Supreme sensors are compatible with the new Schick AE USB interface. However, you will first need to exchange the Schick 33 cable with the new grey Schick AE cable for the two hardware components to connect.

The technical data is the same because Schick AE is built on Schick 33's proven platform. Schick AE also has a pixel size of 15μm and, hence, the resolution is identical. However, the diagnostic image quality is improved due to newly implemented hardware components, such as updated read-out electronics and software algorithms that are not reflected in this overview. In addition to the improved image quality, the new sensor and USB 3 interface allow for an enhanced low-dose optimized dynamic range and accelerated data processing.

Bending imaging plates can distort images and jeopardize the reproducibility of the image quality - plate manufacturers specifically state that plates should not be bent. Intraoral sensors are not as susceptible to scratches or distortion of the image, offer quick X-ray capture and are overall much more durable, offering the ultimate intraoral imaging experience.

The requirements follow those set for the Sidexis 4 imaging software. For more details, please see Sidexis 4 System Requirements.

The Schick intraoral sensor cable technology is backed by years of leading experience and offers outstanding durability. The ability to exchange the cable ensures no loss in productivity if unexpected damage occurs. For example, if a chair rolls over the cable or someone mistakenly shuts it in a drawer with force, there is the potential that the cable could get damaged. For these cases, it is good to be prepared, and the exchangeable cable will ensure that you are fully supported and can continue working with minimal delay.

The USB interface comes equipped with a 2 m USB cable, and additional optional sensor cables go up to 2.7 m to suit every operatory configuration and allow for optimum movement and flexibility.

Dentsply Sirona's intraoral holder systems allow for a hygienic, comfortable and accurate imaging experience and can be purchased through your local dealer.
