October 9, 2019

The Schick AE has new Advanced Exposure technology, which combines a broadened exposure spectrum and developments in filtering enhancements with market-leading image quality, the company said.

At the Dentsply Sirona World 2019 in Las Vegas, the company showcased its new generation of intraoral scanners. The Schick AE has new Advanced Exposure technology, which combines a broadened exposure spectrum and developments in filtering enhancements with market-leading image quality, the company said in a press release.


“A healthy smile begins with a clear, dependable image,” said Dentsply Sirona’s Director of Equipment and Technology Javid Tokhi, “and our leading technologies, like Schick AE, empower dental professionals to feel confident in their diagnosis and treatment, ultimately leading to a healthy and successful dental practice.”


New specifications provide for safe diagnostics, even in lower x-ray dose ranges, the statement said. The new image processing algorithms reinforce the proven theoretical resolution of 33 lp/mm to an even clearer diagnosable image output, the statement said. X-rays are immediately available for diagnosis due to the accelerated read-out and data transfer with the new USB 3 interface. 


The Sidexis 4 imaging software allows for the storage and accessibility of captured images and patient data. This helps with treatment and ensures accurate diagnosis, Dentsply Sirona said. The software is able to connect and manage all of the steps relevant to treatment thanks to its networking capacities. 


“We are very proud to offer dental professionals around the world an outstanding new intraoral sensor solution,” said Dentsply Sirona Vice President Platform Management Equipment and Instruments, Jörg Haist. “The Schick AE technology is built on years of experience, innovation, and expert engineering from former Schick Technologies, Inc., which is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the first Schick intraoral sensor launch this year.”
