The new Orthophos Society: The perfect partner for your practice
Developing solutions for the individual needs of a dental practice - at Dentsply Sirona, this also means providing both new users and specialists with tailored services for X-ray units. These ideas were very important for the new Orthophos Society, which provides solutions for different requirements with a clear functionality.
The three models in the Orthophos series, Orthophos E, Orthophos S and Orthophos SL each provide a different range of services that precisely cover every desire for imaging systems that dental practices have specified. All models function using the award-winning Sidexis 4 imaging software. They provide an outstanding image quality with a low dose and a high level of user comfort. Due to this diversification, both entry-level users and specialists will find the right service package for them.
Orthophos E – for a simple start to digital imaging
With Orthophos E, you can access the world of digital extraoral imaging for more efficiency in the daily practice routine. Thanks to its optional cephalometric arm, Orthophos E is also suitable for the orthodontic practice. With its panoramic, pediatric panoramic, bitewing and other exposure programs, it is equipped with all the basic programs for the diagnosis process in 2D. Its MultiPad enables the patient-friendly selection of the program. The motorised forehead and temple support helps to stabilise the patient. The integrated temple width measurement also enables the appropriate orbital curve to be selected automatically for results with outstanding image quality.
Orthophos S – the 2D/3D all-rounder in the practice
Orthophos S can be used either as a purely 2D device, or alternatively as a combined 2D/3D device. It can also be equipped with a cephalometric arm. Orthophos S achieves its enhanced contrast in panoramic images using the auto-focus function. In addition, the shape of the jaw arch or the existence of tooth anomalies no longer needs to be selected manually. This is also true when setting a canine light localiser. The patented occlusal bite block assists with the automatic positioning of the patient. Orthophos S can be upgraded by adding the 3D option at a later date. It provides suitable volumes and modes for a large number of clinical problems, for example a focused high-resolution volume, or a volume that depicts three-dimensional information of the complete dentition with the dosage range of a 2D image.
Orthophos SL – the innovation leader
Orthophos SL is the innovation leader and provides the "all-round package" for digital imaging. The version with the most comprehensive range of equipment with the Direct Conversion Sensor (DCS) and Sharp Layer (SL) technology caters to all users with the highest requirements for panoramic and 3D imaging in their daily practice routine. Its patented occlusal bite block assists with the automatic positioning of the patient and thus enables reproducible and perfectly positioned panoramic images. Depending on the clinical problem, there are comprehensive 2D programs or a number of volume sizes (Ø5cm x 5cm to Ø11cm x 10cm) in high definition (HD), standard definition (SD) and low dose mode available to the user. MARS (Metal Artifact Reduction Software) automatically detects metals in every volume and reduces the artifacts for the best possible image interpretation. Users can select from 30 ambient light colors that provide background illumination appropriate for their practice for even more patient comfort. Its modern design was selected for the Red Dot Design Award and the iF Design Award.
"With the new Orthophos Society, we are addressing the specialised needs of our customers and have developed an offer that simplifies both entry into the world of digital imaging and intensive use in specialized practices in several disciplines," said Jörg Haist, Vice President Global Platform Management Equipment & Instruments. "In this way, even more dentists will receive access to high-quality X-ray technology and therefore to more reliable diagnoses and treatments."
