High Resolution Imaging

Schick 33 provides dentists with unsurpassed image quality. This new intraoral digital sensor, which has a theoretical resolution limit of 33 line pairs, the highest available on the market, is paired with newly enhanced imaging software that enables dentists to review, store and share images from a variety of clinical perspectives.  This combination of enhanced hardware and software provides the dentist with the best possible image quality.

Unsurpassed Image Management Flexibility

Schick 33’s powerful image enhancement software provides practitioners with an unprecedented level of control over enhancements and customizations to its digital images. Among its features are:

  • Dynamic Image Enhancer that allows users to simply and easily adjust image sharpness
  • Image Preference Presets feature that give users the ability to adjust image appearance based on diagnostic needs
  • User-Definable Tasks for multi-clinician practices that make it easy to change settings according to preference or diagnostic task

Compatible with Existing Schick Systems

Developed to help dentists integrate new digital technologies that can grow with their practice, Schick 33 utilizes the same replaceable cable and remote module design as the Schick Elite sensor. Schick 33’s ability to seamlessly integrate with existing Schick platforms makes it an ideal choice for any practice.

“Our goal is to provide the highest quality intraoral radiographs instantly in every practice, on every patient, every day,” says Kevin McNulty, Executive Vice President, Sirona Dental Systems, LLC. “Schick 33’s design acknowledges the unique needs of each clinician, allowing them to easily adjust their images to suit their own preferences, as well as to choose the sensor size and configuration that can best enhance the patient experience and improve their practice lifestyle.”
