DEXIS introduces the latest in digital imaging — the all-new DEXIS® Platinum intra-oral sensor. With a direct USB connection, new image capture technology, and enhanced ergonomic design, DEXIS builds on its history of innovation and commitment to research and development.

Des Plaines, IL   DEXIS, LLC is proud to release its latest evolution in intra-oral X-ray technology — the DEXIS Platinum Sensor. While maintaining both the comfort and single-sensor concept of its trusted DEXIS PerfectSize™ sensor, DEXIS Platinum now combines direct USB connectivity, TrueComfort™ design, and PureImage™ technology for a new experience in digital imaging.


DEXIS offers breakthrough connectivity with a direct USB digital X-ray sensor that is an even more durable and even more portable solution for use in multiple operatories and fieldwork. Dental team members will benefit from the integrated USB functionality that allows direct connection to the computer! No adapters, no controllers, no docking stations — simply “plug-n-ray.”

To maximize both patient comfort and ease-of-use, DEXIS has enhanced its popular and highly awarded ergonomic sensor housing. As part of TrueComfort design, the DEXIS Platinum Sensor’s refined beveled corners and its rounded casing ensure that there are no sharp edges against the patient’s tissues. The new smaller, angled dome on the back of the sensor incorporates the patented WiseAngle™ cable exit that increases comfort and efficiency for precise placement. These features make radiographic procedures easier for patients and staff.

Since well-defined subtleties in X-ray images are vital to diagnosis, DEXIS has developed its PureImage technology — a combination of highly sophisticated software and premium-quality hardware components. With 16,000 shades of gray generated by a 14-bit analog-to-digital converter, clinicians are able to visualize the slightest variations in densities.

The sensor’s high resolution provides more than 20 visible line pairs offering remarkable image clarity and virtually no visual noise. Plus, an exclusive design maximizes active area at the pixel level, bringing out the smallest details. With a 2.2-megapixel size, images remain crisp when enlarged. These advancements allow the DEXIS Platinum Sensor to deliver clinically meaningful images that are extremely clear and highly detailed.

Adding to its clinical value, the DEXIS Platinum Sensor has an enhanced quantum efficiency, which makes it very receptive and efficient when capturing X-ray images across a dynamic range of radiation settings. This delivers the ability to reduce the number of retakes due to under- and over-exposure, as well as ultimately lower radiation dosages. The sensor produces optimal, consistent images whether using with the latest intra-oral X-ray unit or an older model.

“We have built our reputation by providing the best in digital radiography technology for more than a decade. It is our belief that this commitment to the technology and to the dental community is the principal driver behind our success,” states Rick Henriksen, Vice President of Sales. “It is our ongoing pursuit of excellence that has led us to deliver the DEXIS Platinum sensor.”  

DEXIS is an industry leader in developing high quality digital imaging solutions for the dental community. In 1997, DEXIS introduced digital radiography on laptop computers — making it the first truly portable and affordable digital X-ray system. In 2001, DEXIS became the first intra-oral digital radiography system to be accepted by the American Dental Association into the highly prestigious ADA Seal Program.

Today, DEXIS is the most highly awarded intra-oral digital X-ray system with numerous awards from dental researchers and well-respected dental publications.

Acoustic streaming and cavitation have been proven to significantly enhance cleaning of difficult anatomy. Studies have shown that low frequency (Sonic) oscillation (160-190Hz) was not sufficient to create acoustic streaming or cavitation within the canal space.
