ORTHOPHOS XG 3D. The most popular x-ray unit in the world. Now with 3D.

With a perfectly designed 3D cylinder volume of 8 cm in diameter and 8 cm in height and a standard resolution of 160 µm, ORTHOPHOS XG 3D is precisely tailored to the everyday routines of private practices: it can capture the patient’s whole jaw in a single span. The field of view is large enough to avoid the stitching of several 3D x-ray images and thus multiple exposure to radiation. Yet it is also small enough to be a time-saver in diagnosis.

If an even smaller volume is sufficient, then choose the 5 x 5.5cm VOL 2 with a resolution of 100 µm. Whenever you need to see more, the 3D module provides for greater safety. In all standard cases, the 2D module of ORTHOPHOS XG 3D, with extensive panoramic and cephalometric x-ray programs, delivers the x-ray image you need.

  • Striking image quality with ASTRA (2D), MARS (3D) and High-Definition mode
  • Two scan volumes for dose reduction and time-efficient diagnostics
  • High resolution (160/100 µm)
  • Simple unit operation for 2D and 3D scans with automatic switching sensor
  • Automatic patient positioning for correct panoramic scans
  • Optional CEPH arm on left or right
  • Automatic changeover between PAN and 3D sensor
  • Automatic patient positioning with the occlusal bite block
  • Incredibly simple unit operation

Two scan volumes See everything – the time-efficient approach to diagnostics

pi_orthophos_xg_3d_endovolumen_200Depending on the indication, a small volume of 5×5.5 cm and a standard volume collimated to the mandible and maxilla of 8×8 cm can be sufficient. Below 5×5 cm correct patient positioning is not reliable; more than 8×8 cm means more time is needed for diagnostics – without added value for the dental practice.

On the one hand, the ORTHOPHOS XG 3D with its standard volume of 8×8 cm is the allrounder for all dental practices and, on the other hand, thanks to the combination of small volumes with a high resolution of 100 µm, it is the preferred CBCT unit for endospecialists.

Striking image quality in 2D and 3D X-rays offering maximum image quality in all dimensions.

pi_orthophos_xg_3d_bildqualitaet_200The High-Definition mode and MARS (Metal Artifact Reduction Software) provide brilliant 3D images which in the small endo volume can also be reconstructed with a high resolution of 100 µm, while ASTRA (Anatomically Structured Reconstruction Algorithm) provides uniform, impressive results for panoramic and ceph scans.

Regardless of whether in a panoramic scan or 3D volume, with ORTHOPHOS XG 3D you will see more and save time on diagnostics.

Integrated implantology with CEREC x-rays that go beyond x-rays

pi_orthophos_xg_3d_integrierteImplantologie_cerec_200As with the large-volume scans of the GALILEOS family, ORTHOPHOS XG 3D also allows you to simultaneously perform prosthetic and surgical planning of implants and take advantage of either a centrally or CEREC-produced high-precision drilling template. The time required for planning and production of the template is minimal for CEREC users, your patients will appreciate the need for treatment more readily and will value the additional safety offered by template-guided implantation.


2D programs

  • Panoramic programs with optional constant magnification or artifact-free
  • Sinus programs
  • Temporomandibular joint programs
  • Thick slice in anterior tooth region
  • Bite wing programs
  • Multislice in posterior tooth region

Here are a few interesting examples:


  • Adolescent, full dentition with orthodontic braces
  • Agenesis of teeth 18 and 28 with the presence of odontoblasts in 38 and 48
  • Unusually large pulp cavities with incomplete root growth of 37 and 47 are evidence of the patient’s young age
  • Hyperdense, metal-dense structure in the auricular region on both sides points to a female patient
  • Maxillary sinuses and surrounding anatomical structures not radiographically apparent



  • Dentition badly damaged by periodontitis, generalized vertical and horizontal bone resorption with teeth 17-14 requiring extraction
  • Hypodense, homogenous and clearly delimited changes to the hard tooth substance on 12 mesial, 11 distal and 23 mesial
  • Differential diagnosis: Caries or non-x-ray opaque composite fillings
  • PFM bridge on teeth 36-35, with periodontal damage and caries in tooth 36 with calculus build-up on the mesial root
  • Splinting of teeth 32-42 from past periodontal history
  • Hyperdense filling material in mesial root of the hemisected tooth 46, no indication of apical inflammation
  • Implant-based treatment of teeth 36/46 with radiographically sufficient PFM hybrid bridge 37-36-mesial root of 36


  • Prosthetic and prophylactic treatment of dentition
  • Hypodense clearly limited changes to the hard tooth substance in the anterior maxilla (presumably non-x-ray-opaque composite fillings)
  • Hyperdense filling material in roots of tooth 11 and tooth 35, no indication of inflammation of the periapical bone tissue as far as this can be assessed
  • Status post apicoectomy on tooth 36 with retrograde obturation of the mesial and distal roots, good rehabilitation of the periapical bone tissue, no indication of recurrent apical osteolysis.


pi_orthophosxg3d_indikationen_200What does the bone structure look like? How great is the distance to the nerve canal? In all dental disciplines, there are numerous questions that can be answered far more easily using 3D x-rays. The third dimension increases clinical safety and your patients’ trust. 3D from Sirona also helps you, as a general dentist, to gain the necessary confidence to do implants yourself. You will expand your range of services, enhance patient loyalty to your practice, and referrals will become redundant
