DCS – Sharpness for fine details


The Direct Conversion Sensor (DCS) has redefined the standard of panoramic imaging. X-rays are converted directly into electrical signals – unlike conventional systems, there are no signal losses due to light conversion. This means an improved image information output for you. The result is images with a uniquely high level of sharpness – even at an extremely low dose.

Ambient Light

With a selection of over 30 colors, the Ambient Light of the Orthophos SL 3D creates a pleasant atmosphere for your patient and blends in perfectly with your modern practice look.

Cephalometric Imaging

Orthophos SL 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. For displaced teeth, you can also use 3D x-rays to determine their exact location.

"It is not only because of my interest in technology that I find the combination of direct conversion technology and the reconstructive sharp layer procedure in the Orthophos SL to be truly exciting. The resulting precise images work perfectly for interpretation. In combination with the volume selection in 3D, we have a universally applicable diagnostic partner for our practice."

What are the system requirements?

The requirements follow those for the image processing software, Sidexis 4. Details can be found here: Sidexis 4 system requirements.

I already have a Sidexis XG. So I have to switch to Sidexis 4 in order to use an Orthophos SL?

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

Can I upgrade to a 2D-only Orthophos with a 3D sensor?

The Orthophos SL 2D and the Orthophos S 2D are 3D upgradeable. The Orthophos E does not offer this option.
