TrueComfort Design

(1) Beveled corners, a smooth, rounded casing and the small, angled dome maximizes patient comfort and makes precise placement easy.

The patented WiseAngle Cable Exit (shown above) helps patients better tolerate the procedure and provides cable flexibility to reduce stress and increase reliability.

PureImage Technology

Through advanced hardware and software technologies, the DEXIS Platinum Sensor delivers highly detailed, extremely clear, clinically meaningful images.

A premium quality Caesium Iodide scintillator (2) converts the X-ray beam into visible light and guides it through micro-columnar structures.

The light is then transmitted precisely to the sensor surface by Fiber optics (3). This efficient design allows a high signal-to-noise ratio resulting in clean images with virtually no visual noise.

The high resolution CMOS sensor (4) features an exclusive architecture that maximizes active area at the pixel level to bring out the smallest details in the X-ray image.

A 14-bit analog-to-digital converter generates 16,000 shades of gray to allow subtle variations in densities to be seen.

Integrated Electronics

A smart design places all the electronics on the sensor’s back (5) to maximize the active imaging area. The on-board electronics provide the USB functionality allowing direct connection to the computer.


A protective shield (6) affixed to the interior wall of the rear housing protects the patient by preventing X-ray back scattering.

KaVo DEXIS Platinum Sensor Patient Communication

Remarkable Image Quality

The ability to see subtleties using digital radiography is crucial to diagnosis, collaboration, and patient communication. Through a combination of advanced hardware and software technologies, the DEXIS Platinum sensor is able to deliver clinically meaningful images that are extremely clear and highly detailed.

Quantum Efficiency

Fancy words, simple concept: DEXIS hardware and software work in harmony to compensate for radiation variances thus guarding against under and over exposure. That means you are able to get more clinically useable, more consistent images at a wider range of exposure settings. You benefit from a reduction in the number of exposure-related dental X-ray retakes, and your patients benefit from the reduction in radiation.

KaVo DEXIS Platinum Sensor Perfect Size

PerfectSize™ Sensor

The ability to take vertical AND horizontal bitewings AND all periapicals with a single sensor eliminates the cost and inconvenience of using multiple sensors of different sizes.

Direct USB Connectivity

The DEXIS direct-USB sensor is ultra-portable making it an affordable solution for multiple operatories. Since it’s hot-swappable with no adaptive device required, the sensor can easily be moved from room to room without disrupting workflow. And best of all, you need only a single sensor to take ALL X-ray images — vertical AND horizontal bitewings AND all periapicals. There is no need for a separate adapter or docking station. DEXIS is the first to offer gold plating on the sensor’s USB connector for better durability.

KaVo DEXIS Platinum Sensor Wise Angle

WiseAngle Cable Exit

Located on the sensor’s back, the patented WiseAngle Cable Exit eases positioning, and helps patients better tolerate the procedure. It also allows cable flexibility, reducing stress on the connec­tion to increase reliability.
