2D X-ray units Orthophos XG 3D ready

Quality for today, options for tomorrow

Orthophos XG 3D ready makes the ideal partner for general dentists and group practices that wish to actively plan and shape their futures. With a range of programs, this unit offers you all the diagnostic options. The intuitive EasyPad control panel and automatic patient positioning with the occlusal bite block ensure an efficient workflow. And last but not least, you can add a cephalometric arm and/or a 3D sensor at any time. So if you want to expand your practice offering at any time in the future, you don't have to worry about it today.

The Orthophos XG 3D ready units are supplied with the Dentsply Sirona Imaging software, Sidexis 4, for better, safer and faster diagnostics.

Your benefits at a glance

The advanced model for future-proof practices

Striking image quality with CsI and ASTRA suits your diagnosis

Sophisticated diagnostic options at your fingertips for endodontics, periodontics, implantology, orthodontics and surgery.

Occlusal bite block and EasyPad for intuitive operation

Prevents incorrect exposures with a unit that is easy to handle for your practice team and offers patented solutions for reliable positioning.

When your practice grows, your Orthophos XG 3D ready can grow with it

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

Investment security based on tried and tested quality

With Orthophos XG 3D ready you know what to expect: proven "Made in Germany" quality installed in thousands of practices worldwide.

My Orthophos XG 3D ready brings me into a new dimension of diagnostics due to its outstanding image reproduction. And you can even upgrade the unit for future challenges!

Highlight features


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.


The best image quality at the lowest possible dose - following the ALARA principle.

2D panoramic imaging: focus on quality

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.

The Orthophos XG 3D ready combines a premium "Made in Germany" tubehead (0.5 mm focal spot) with a CsI sensor (0.027 mm pixel size) to generate the sharpness and clarity needed for your clinical tasks. The innovative ASTRA software algorithm significantly improves the quality of 2D panoramic and Ceph images by minimizing black margins around metal fillings and getting rid of excessive contrast that could lead to i.e. missdiagnosis of caries.

Cephalometric imaging

Orthophos XG 3D 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.


The requirements actually follow those for the image processing software, Sidexis 4. Details can be found under Sidexis 4 System Requirements.

No, you do not have to switch. Orthophos XG 3D ready works with both Sidexis XG and Sidexis 4. But for a better user experience, we recommend to install Sidexis 4, data migration from Sidexis XG to Sidexis 4 being very easy.

You will have to contact your Dentsply Sirona Imaging representative. To proceed, the serial nummer of your unit will requested. Thus, a visit at your practice of our local technician will be scheduled.
