If you’re in the market for new x-ray sensors, do your homework. We can help some here as we take a look at 13 x-ray sensor solutions with many enhancements designed to produce fast, clear images; better patient comfort; lower radiation exposures; and more.
You can’t fix what you can’t see.
When it comes to treating patients, x-rays are vital to seeing and diagnosing dental issues. X-rays are a critical tool when it comes to providing the best possible care for your patients.
Over the years, dental x-ray systems have gotten better and faster, enabling clinicians to diagnose and treat dental conditions better than ever. Digital x-ray sensors are constantly in use. They’re moved between operatories and in and out of patients’ mouths on a daily basis.
Clinicians need to count on them, and with so much work, there are ample opportunities for them to break. Since these small devices are so critical in keeping a practice up and running, it’s important to do your homework when shopping for x-ray sensors.
Today’s offerings are better than ever. Many manufacturers offer sensors that deliver high-quality images, work with a variety of dental imaging and practice management software programs, and are designed for rapid diagnoses. Another development in recent years has come along the lines of sensor shapes and sizes designed to improve comfort for patients of varying ages and sizes. Another key factor is radiation exposure and, fortunately, the industry also has made great strides in this regard, reducing exposure times and improving the patients’ overall experiences.
DentiMax Dream Sensor
This open sensor works natively with virtually any software, including DEXIS™ Imaging Suite, Patterson Eaglesoft®, Gendex™, VixWin™, Dentrix Ascend, Instrumentarium Cliniview, and Suni.
It produces crystal-clear x-ray images and has received numerous accolades, including the Editors’ Choice Award from The Dental Advisor.
Rounded, beveled corners help to provide superior comfort to patients. And, at just 5.41 mm, the Dream Sensor is the thinnest CMOS sensor on the market.
All DentiMax sensors come with a 3-year, zero-deductible warranty, and practices can try sensors for free as part of the “Try Before You Buy” sensor trial program. Free Test Drive - Just plug in the sensor, we'll do the rest
The Schick AE x-ray sensor offers a combination of optimal image quality, security of investment, diagnostic support, and greater independence from suboptimal exposure settings, all of which promote clinical confidence.
New and advanced exposure technology combines market-leading image quality with advances in filtering enhancements and a broadened exposure spectrum.
New advanced image processing algorithms supplement the proven theoretical resolution of 33 lp/mm to an even clearer diagnosable image output.
The award-winning imaging software, Sidexis 4, facilitates the storage and accessibility of the captured images and patient data.
Offers a unique combination of unparalleled image quality with a patient-centric design.
Comes in 3 sizes to accommodate all patients and has rounded corners for additional comfort.
These sensors are of the highest quality available with Kevlar wrapped wires for durability. They are hermetically sealed for optimal infection control and utilize a high-definition–class CMOS sensor, to produce sharp, low noise images with high contrast
When paired with the Planmeca ProX®, you can benefit from a fully integrated system that literally snaps into place.
The Rextar X features a camera-like design that is fast and easy to hold and operate.
Rextar’s 2 layers of lead shielding have been tested at 0 leakage. In fact, a test of some of the top systems showed that the Rextar X produced amongst the least amount of absorbed radiation for both the user and the patient and provided some of the best images, at the lowest possible exposure times.
One Rextar can provide the same coverage as 4 wall-mounted units and take multiple images in half the time.
The sensor enables clinicians to make immediate and safe diagnoses. Thanks to the intelligent A²-S (Automatic Activation System), the number of steps to capture a high definition image is reduced and its quality is also guaranteed.
The OPTEO sensor can capture and display high-resolution radiographs concisely. As it is no longer necessary to wait for the radiographs to be scanned or developed, you can focus on patients and increase efficiency.
The sensor’s ergonomic design with rounded corners and beveled edges make the experience more comfortable for patients.
The SOPIX series simplifies x-ray acquisition with striking contrast and exceptional image quality.
These digital sensors have been developed to satisfy all requirements of any dental practice while offering a solution for every budget.
Available on all SOPIX series sensors, ACE® technology analyzes in real time the number of x-rays accumulated by the sensor. It freezes the image acquisition as soon as it receives the necessary radiation to provide a high quality image while preventing overexposure.
The clinician and the patient are ensured that the first x-ray is always perfect, avoiding additional image acquisition. This saves time, and the patient is protected from unnecessary x-ray exposure.
