Axeos, the versatile 3D/2D extraoral imaging solution from Dentsply Sirona, recently received the international iF Design Award. The 98-member international jury recognized the device primarily for its form and functionality – in these categories the product achieved the best ratings. Axeos provides general practitioners and specialists with a hybrid system that covers a wide range of dental indications and meets modern imaging requirements: sharp images with the lowest possible dose, various selectable volumes and intuitive operability.

The new extraoral imaging system from Dentsply Sirona, Axeos, has been awarded another prestigious design prize. In 2020, the imaging device received the esteemed Red Dot Award for product design. In 2021, Axeos has received another award by the international iF Design Award. In their evaluation, the 98-member international jury awarded points for the product idea, form, function, distinctiveness and utility. Axeos received superior marks in all areas. The jury members were particularly impressed by its form and functionality, which leads to an increased quality in performance and treatment comfort.

“We are very delighted to receive this award,” said Niels Plate, Group Vice President, Digital Devices & Solutions at Dentsply Sirona. “It confirms our goal of offering our customers solutions that stand for high clinical safety, patient comfort and efficient treatment processes. A successful form and functionality of the device contribute to this.”

Imaging solution for general practitioners and specialists

As a modern imaging solution, Axeos offers excellent image quality in 2D and 3D, flexible volumes, seamless connection to Sidexis 4 software as well as to numerous treatment programs. In addition, several features focus on maximum patient comfort: positioning aids (e.g. unique auto-positioner with patented occlusal bite block, automatic temple width measurement, smart height adjustment) support in rapidly achieving the optimum alignment for the image. Lastly, lighting concepts like ambient light create a more pleasant, calming atmosphere for patients.

With Axeos, both classic standard panoramic exposures – which is especially good for children – and extraoral bite wing exposures can be taken. If desired, Axeos can be equipped with a cephalometric arm (left or right) that can be retrofitted at any time. This versatility also convinces users. Dr. Neal Patel, dentist and owner of the Infinite Smiles clinic in Powell, Ohio, says: “Axeos gives us all the X-ray diagnostic options we need. Both temporomandibular joints can be displayed in one image, we receive information about the airways, and we can take HD images when it comes to special endodontic aspects. The low-dose mode further expands the range of indications.” This makes Axeos an imaging solution particularly beneficial to clinicians in various disciplines.
