2D X-ray units Orthophos SL 2D

The revolution in 2D imaging

The Orthophos SL is the latest member of the successful 2D X-ray family from Dentsply Sirona. It scores on functionality, quality and design. With its DCS sensor and SL technology, the Orthophos SL 2D unit satisfies even the greatest demands of dental practictioners regarding panoramic imaging.

In combination with the pioneering Sidexis 4 software for image processing, the Orthophos SL also offers a unique variety of innovative solutions for the practice workflow. Investment security is ensured: Orthophos SL 2D can be equipped at any time with a cephalometric arm or upgraded with a 3D sensor up to a volume of 11 cm x 10 cm.

Patients appreciate the soothing Ambient Light, which offers a choice of over 30 colors for a pleasant atmosphere in your X-ray room that perfectly matches the style of your practice.

Benefits at a glance

Best-in-class 2D X-ray unit with optional Ceph and 3D upgrade.

Revolutionary 2D DCS images for efficient diagnosis

Thanks to the DCS (Direct Conversion Sensor) technology, which skips the process of light conversion and therefore mantains more image information, you benefit from unparalleled sharp images.

All teeth automatically in the sharp layer

The Sharp Layer technology automatically adapts the panoramic curve to the patient‘s individual anatomical features, ensuring that the entire jaw is always in the sharp layer.

Automatic positioning aids optimize your practice workflow

The new EasyPad, patented occlusal bite block, Easy Volume Indicator lights and 3-Point Head Fixation: never has it been easier to perfectly position patients quickly and efficiently.

When your practice grows, your Orthophos SL will be ready

If a new associate joins the practice or you wish to develop your diagnostic capabilities, you can always add a cephalometric arm or a 3D sensor without replacing your Orthophos unit.

The Direct Conversion Sensor (DCS) ensures the optimal yield of X-ray radiation. The images are very precise – and it is possible to reduce the radiation dose.

Feature highlights

Direct Conversion Sensor

DCS technology converts X-rays directly into electrical signals, with no information loss due to light conversion. For razor-sharp, high-contrast panoramic X-ray images of exceptional quality.

Sharp Layer (SL) technology

On every X-ray image the entire jaw is automatically shown in the sharp layer, taking the patient's individual anatomical features into account.

Automatic positioning

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

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.

"SL" as in Sharp Layer: no need for a second exposure

SL Technology allows you to generate several thousand images during a single rotation. The fragments with the best focus are automatically combined to form one X-ray image with incomparable sharpness. High resolution images of the entire jaw – every time. You will be able to approach special cases, such as impacted teeth, with ease. Interactive SL allows you to define an image area of your choice even after imaging, so you can focus on lingual/buccal objects – without corrective re-imaging.

Changing focus with interactive SL can make a huge difference

Lingual/buccal different points of interest will get into the sharp layer

Cephalometric imaging

Orthophos SL 2D offers 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. 

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. In cases of displaced teeth, you can also fall back on the benefits of 3D x-rays to determine their exact location.

FAQs

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

Yes, the Orthophos SL works exclusively with Sidexis 4. But data migration from Sidexis XG to Sidexis 4 is very easy.

Yes, it is possible. To proceed, the serial nummer of your unit will requested. Thus, a visit at your practice of our local technician will be scheduled.
