Review this Product

The OpTime intraoral Digital Imaging System is designed to make work in the dental office easier and more efficient. The OpTime is small, easy to use and fast to operate.


OpTime’s advantages over CCD or CMOS sensors:

  • wireless
  • flexible
  • easy to use
  • same technique as film
  • traditional film sizing


OpTime’s advantages over current PSP systems:

  • chairside scanning
  • instant (4.3 sec.) image display
  • self erasing
  • centralized batch processing is eliminated
  • reduced handling for increased plate life
  • image series mounting (drag & drop) is eliminated



Efficient Workflow

The OpTime imaging procedure has been designed to be as simple and easy as possible so that workflow in your dental office is more efficient. The OpTime imaging procedure is fast;

  • Imaging Plates are as easy to position in the patient’s mouth as film
  • the read-out process is completely automatic
  • read-out time is very short
  • no additional adapters nor equipment (such as erasure box) are needed

These advantages reduce the number of tasks you have to do thus making everyday work more efficient and flexible. This ultimately gives you more time for your patients.




Compact size

The OpTime’s size means that you can place it in the most convenient position for your way of working. Positioning the unit exactly where you want will improve your workflow and make daily work more efficient and comfortable.




Smart design

The OpTime is smart. It is operated with just two buttons, the on/off and the start button. Insert the exposed imaging plate into the OpTime and everything is done automatically. The OpTime was designed right from the start to be easy to use and integrate efficiently into the dental office.


Quick read-out time

Quick read-out time makes it possible to feed Imaging Plates continuously, for example, when a full mouth x-ray series is taken.



New Imaging Plates

Thin and reusable Imaging Plates are as easy to place and position as conventional film. Imaging Plates can be placed accurately both horizontally and vertically – you can take exact intraoral projection. By using Imaging Plates you can reduce the number of retakes.

OpTime flexible imaging plates

OpTime flexible imaging plates

OpTime Imaging Plates are comfortable for the patient and easy to handle for the user. The Imaging Plates are flexible enough to enable easy and precise positioning and comfort for the patient, while being rigid enough to minimize distortion.




The new OpTime Imaging Plates include a marker that is visible on the image if the Imaging Plate is exposed from the back side.

Imaging Plate Covers

The covers protect the Imaging Plates and therefore extend their usable life considerably. The covers protect the Imaging Plates from cross-contamination and light after the hygiene bag is removed.

Hygiene Bags

New two-colored hygiene bags make positioning simple and eliminate the possibility of cross contamination. Sealing and opening the hygiene bags is effortless.

Image Quality

Clinical image quality is a result of the whole OpTime concept. The OpTime System uses highly sensitive and intelligent Imaging Plate readout technology to achieve high quality images with an exceptionally wide dynamic range. The result is that even small details like 0.06mm root canal files are visible.
In addition, the OpTime System allows reduced exposure times to be used and virtually eliminates under and overexposed images. Less retakes means good news for you and your patients.

Optimal signal-to-noise ratio

In digital imaging, a optimal signal-to-noise ratio is important to create images of the highest quality, too much noise results in a loss of diagnostic information. The OpTime System is designed with a short light path from the imaging plate to the photomultiplier, which means that a low dose can be used while keeping the noise level low. The result is an Optimized crystal clear image with a very low level of noise.

Wide dynamic range

An often overlooked quality in an imaging system is its dynamic range. A wide dynamic range means no over or underexposed images, consistent image quality and compatibility with both AC and DC intraoral x-ray units and no need to change exposure settings for each patient. The exceptionally wide Dynamic range of the OpTime System gives you good image quality, consistently.
