Sirona Dental Systems Inc, Long Island City, NY, will introduce its new XIOS Intraoral Sensor System at the ADA meeting in San Francisco. According to the company, XIOS is designed to produce precise image quality within seconds—even during the most complex procedures.

Sirona has integrated its ergonomic concept into XIOS, including a slim sensor design with rounded edges. The cable attachment is located on the back of the sensor, requiring minimal space. It is protected via a strain relief.  The sensor housing, with integrated shock-absorption technology, protects the chip and microelectronics during routine use. Sirona is also introducing new sensor positioners for XIOS: thin, disposable, self-adhesive holders that are smaller than the sensor, which simplify the positioning in patients’ mouths. XIOS sensors cover the entire intraoral exposure spectrum with two available sizes: size 1 for children and those with special anatomical considerations, and size 2 for adult patients and bite-wing exposures.

The XIOS sensors feature the latest CMOS Active Pixel Sensor (APS) technology, which delivers low noise and optimal resolution. Practitioners can see and diagnose immediately from the images displayed—a significant advantage when taking x-rays chair side during a complex treatment. Filters, measuring tools, and analysis functions retrieve complete information from every digital image. Drawing tools and electronic memos enable productive and clear communication with patients and colleagues.
