BENSHEIM, Germany/SALZBURG, Austria: Dentsply Sirona, the world’s largest manufacturer of professional dental products and technologies, has a 130-year history of innovation and service. Among such innovations is the company’s Sidexis 4 software, which is designed to optimise networking between imaging systems in the dental practice.

According to the company, Sidexis 4 controls, connects and manages everything involved in treatment in a practice—from imaging, diagnosis and treatment planning to archiving and communication with patients. The software can be used with almost all other commonly used practice management software, allowing the imaging data to be saved in the patient’s digital file.

Sidexis 4 has open interfaces so that the software can be integrated into any practice, according to Dentsply Sirona, allowing 3-D DICOM data from third-party providers to be imported and used. This simplifies the sharing of radiographs with colleagues by eliminating the need for conversion. These functions result in easier, more efficient treatment planning and patient recall.

“I use this every day in my practice,” explained Dr Dirk Rosenthal from Gernsheim in Germany. “The software is easy to use and, in addition to the various connection options, allows the optimal integration of many different planning applications, such as the implant planning software Galileos Implant. With the SICAT Air, I was able to expand the range of treatment in my practice to include obstructive sleep apnoea. I can do the planning right in front of patients and discuss it with them.”

“With the Sidexis 4 imaging software, we give dentists a versatile tool that supports diagnostics and treatment planning,” stated Jörg Haist, Director of Product Management at Dentsply Sirona. “Dentists can concentrate on just that without having to become IT experts. This is why we emphasised simplicity and meeting the needs of daily practice routine when developing the Sidexis 4.”

Regular updates to Sidexis 4 are based on the experiences shared by the software’s users and are available online to benefit dentists in the practice and in preparing for the future.
