The newest member of the successful Orthophos range, with revolutionary DCS image quality for efficient diagnosticss. Future proof due to Ceph and 3D upgrade options.

Orthophos XG 3D ready

Orthophos XG 3D ready makes the ideal partner for dentists and group practices that wish to actively plan and shape their futures.

Orthophos XG 5

Trusted partner of orthodontists with dedicated pedriatric and ceph programs, Ceph arm is optional.

Orthophos XG 3

Quality from the very start: perfect for general dentists getting started in digital, featuring the 7 most essential programs.

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.

Panoramic image quality is constantly evolving

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 (only left side for Orthophos XG 5).

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

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

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.

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.
