Dental professionals that are considering the purchase of a new or used dental panoramic X-ray machine, and have narrowed down their list of options to a Sirona Orthophos XG system l, will notice that most models appear fairly similar. However, for all their outward similarities, they have some very distinct features, many of which are related to upgradeability, availability of panoramic imaging programs, touchpad design, and suitability to different dental applications.
For those looking for a machine with the ability to expand the functionality of their extraoral imaging system in the future, upgradeability is a very important consideration when choosing a dental panoramic X-ray machine. This short article will investigate the upgradeability of some of the certified pre-owned Sirona Orthophos XG machines available at Renew Digital, the leading provider of used dental imaging technology.
Machines That Are Not Upgradeable
For general dentists interested in affordable, entry-level systems, with no plan on upgrading in the future, the Sirona Orthophos XG3 system is probably the best choice. The Orthophos XG3 captures high-quality basic panoramic X-ray images and offers up to 6 panoramic programs including standard, panoramic with left and right sides, panorex X-ray with constant magnification, panoramic with artifact reduction, TMJ projections, and optional extraoral bitewings. Additionally, the Orthophos XG3 is easy to operate and program via a simple digital multipad. For those looking for a machine with the ability to expand the functionality of their extraoral imaging system in the future In addition, the panoramic images captured by this system can be integrated with your current dental imaging software through a TWAIN interface.
Sirona Orthophos XG Models That Are Upgradeable to Cephalometric Only
The Sirona XG5 is a practical option for dentists or specialists that are interested in upgrading to a cephalometric modality in the future. This system includes up to 11 panoramic imaging programs, including more advanced options such as pediatric panoramic, thick anterior slice projections, sinus, and multi-slice scans in addition to optional extraoral bitewing images. Similar to the Sirona XG3, the Sirona Orthophos XG5 offers a streamlined workflow via a digital multipad. And, patient panoramic (and later cephalometric) images can be easily integrated into your current imaging software via a TWAIN interface.
Upgradeable to Cephalometric and Dental CBCT
Dental specialists that need the widest range of diagnostic programs and that may be interested in later expanding the abilities of their practice to both cephalometric X-ray and/or dental CBCT capabilities should consider the Sirona Orthophos XG 3D Ready System. The Sirona XG 3D Ready delivers the widest range of digital panoramic programs including both standard and pediatric panoramic X-rays as well as quadrant-based scans, multiple TMJ projections, sinus programs, multiple extraoral bitewing image options, and much more.
Like the other Sirona Orthophos XG panoramic systems, the Orthophos XG 3D Ready features the same streamlined workflow, but with the added benefit of programming images with an EasyPad, instead of the multipad of the XG3 and XG5. The EasyPad displays a preview image on the screen directly after exposure, and panoramic X-rays can be integrated into almost any leading dental imaging software through a TWAIN interface.
