Why choose Sidexis iX?

Implant visualization

Don’t just tell your patients your implant proposal, show them. With Sidexis iX, you can choose between several different implant options, adapting the size, angle, and placement in the region of interest- for clear and easy-to-understand case visualization.

3D imaging to go

Sidexis iX can display your 2D and 3D X-ray data. Simply scroll through the section views on your iPad, move the rendering, and illustrate your patient’s diagnosis completely chairside - for easy treatment consultation and case visualization.

Intuitive setup

Choose a patient, download the relevant image, make annotations and save your work in the Sidexis 4 patient history. Sidexis iX has been designed to make your life easy and to keep your practice workflows as efficient as possible.

Intended uses for Sidexis iX

  • Digitally record and archive the patient-specific anamnesis sheet
  • Manage patient and image databases of a Sidexis system
  • Establish the exposure readiness of your Dentsply Sirona X-ray unit remotely from the iPad

Sidexis iX is not an approved medical device and may therefore not be used for therapeutic or diagnostic purposes. The main application purpose is for patient communication and consultation.

Aquiring Sidexis iX

You will first need to install the free demo version of Sidexis iX from the Apple App Store. Then, in the "Settings" menu you will perform the in-app purchase (payment is made via the App Store).

3D imaging on Sidexis iX

In order to process 3D images the following is required:

  • iPad Air 2 or higher, iPad Pro 12.9" recommended
  • Sidexis 4 version 4.2 or higher
  • Sidexis iX Server version 4.0 or higher

Device compatibility

The iPad can access the Sidexis 4 database via the practice's WLAN network and display the patient list and associated media.

The prerequisite for this is the installation of the "Sidexis iX Server" software on any computer in the practice that has Sidexis 4. This software handles the communication between Sidexis 4 and Sidexis iX.

Sidexis iX Server is available as a free download in the download section below.

Sidexis iX light

The light version of Sidexis iX offers a wide range of functions, while the below options are exclusive only to the full Sidexis iX version.

Sidexis iX light does not include the following functions:
There is no communication with the remote Sidexis iX Server (only database recovery of a previously backed up iX App database), which means that you will not be able to access the below.

  • No remote access to the Sidexis database
  • No possibility for the production of exposure readiness
  • No automatic retrieval of corresponding recording results
  • No digital recording of the patient-specific anamnesis sheet

The Sidexis iX light version works independently without WLAN connection and offers all patient and image functions based on the included demo database.
