    Not only Bitewings, but an entire FMX!

    • Vertical bitewing feature as well as FMX Clipping feature creates 18 intraoral-sized images clipped from the pan with one click.

    • Ideal tool for patients who won’t tolerate traditional PAs

    • Instead of taking 18 individual images with an intraoral X-Ray, they can all be generated at once in 14 seconds.

    A dental cone beam machine is a critical tool for dental professionals to help them perform a wide array of dentistry exams and procedures including general dentistry, implants, endodontics, third molar evaluations, airway assessments, pediatric and bitewing exams and much more.  Sometimes, it is called a dental CT machine, or a CBCT machine.  It also can be a dental cone beam with ceph as well.

    The Panoura X-era dental cone beam and dental cone beam with ceph machines have a proven track record as a workhorse that delivers day in and day out for years. The workflow will be seamless regardless of what practice management system you are using, and all members of your staff will be fully confident using the tools so they can focus their attention on patients not devices.

    Most importantly, you will have a team in your corner every step of the way to help your staff navigate changing technology, avoid pitfalls, and make the most of your imaging investments.

      For dental professionals that need both 3D volumes AND 2D panoramic radiographs to be high resolution. 

      Most dental cone beam systems use the same sensor for 2D panoramic radiographs as they use for the 3D scans.  This means that one (or both) modality is typically suboptimal.

      “We’ve been really happy to add the X-era to our practice, as it’s become such a crucial tool for me and my staff. We were excited to get a great price on a large field of view machine with this level of image quality. While I don’t use the 16 cm wide field of view all the time, it’s been critical for me to have this capability for certain cases. Wonderful product.”   –Dr. Amr Hassan, Wesley Chapel, FL

      “I feel very strongly that it’s my job to make sure this practice is providing the best dental care that it can to our patients.  Adding the cone beam to the office has provided us a new level of intelligence that enables me to advise my patients in ways I couldn’t fathom before.  Traveling deeper into 3D dentistry has been a journey for all of us, and I’m very glad to have ImageWorks in my corner every step of the way.”  –Dr Hieu Pham, Portland, OR

      “Our dentists are really impressed with the quality of the 3D images..”   –Tim Baldwin, Woodbridge, VA

      A 0.2 mm focal spot will allow you to spend less time convincing patients of your diagnosis and more time practicing dentistry.

      Most cone beam systems either have a 0.5 mm or worse (larger focal spots equal less edge sharpness).  The X-era focal spot is one of the smallest in the industry for a dental cone beam system.  This not only means you and your staff can see more, but your patients can as well.


      Field of View options to go as small as you want, or as big as you need.

      Many dental cone beam systems max out at 9 or 10 cm wide.  This may lead to:

      • Cutting off 3rd molars
      • Inability to perform airway analysis
      • Inability to capture TMJs
      • Little margin for error in patient positioning (i.e. suboptimal positioning may cause desired anatomy to fall outside the scanning volume which may require a retake)

      The X-era gives the operator a number of options ranging from endo (4 cm x 6 cm) all way up to 16 cm wide.  This offers fantastic flexibility and won’t limit what you can do with the platform.


      The Panoura 18S digital panoramic x-ray machine and its Direct Conversion Sensor will contribute to your practice like no other panoramic x-ray. There are many different brands of panoramic x-ray machines and pan ceph machines for sale including Carestream, Vatech, Gendex, Dexis, Prexion, Planmeca, J. Morita, Rayscan and many more.  Dentists are excited to see how the Panoura 18S outperforms all other options.

      A Panoramic X-Ray to be proud of

      Most of our dental professionals depend on their cone beam system to produce a high-quality panoramic x-ray in addition to a high-quality 3D volume.  Most dental cone beam systems sacrifice the performance of their panoramic modality by attempting to use the 3D sensor to perform 2D panos.  The X-era uses a cone beam sensor for cone beam scans, and a panoramic sensor for panoramic scans. 



      In fact, the panoramic sensor is the same high-quality sensor that we use in our wildly successful pan-only platform, the Panoura 18S.  Here’s what makes the panoramic modality so powerful…

      What’s so great about a Direct Conversion Sensor?

      Most Panoramic CMOS sensors use lower-cost materials that are less sensitive to x-ray. Therefore, these sensors must convert x-ray to light before converting to a digital signal. This can result in image blurriness because the extra conversion step can cause the radiation to “fan out” and inadvertently trigger surrounding pixels. The X-era utilizes a Direct Conversion (sometimes referred to as “Cadmium Telluride”) sensor that converts x-ray directly to digital, which contributes to a much sharper image.



      Better detail, higher confidence, no retakes

      Every scan captures over 50 different panoramic layers!

      With most panoramic x-ray units, the arch of the patient needs to be exactly where the machine wants: along the path where the beam is focused. 

      • If positioning is not precise, a poor image can result.
      • If the patient shifts slightly during the time the operator walks out to initiate the scan, a poor image can result.
      • If the patient’s arch doesn’t match the trajectory of the scan, certain anatomy may not be in focus.  
      • The emergence profile of the anteriors could make it difficult to capture both mandibular and maxillary apices clearly in the panoramic scan.

      The X-era also has Multi-Focal Plane capture capability.  This means that every scan captures many layers both forward and backward.  This creates a wide “envelope” where much more data is captured around where the patient is positioned.
