Digital X-Ray offers a detailed image of your entire mouth and also offer up to 80% less radiation than traditional film x-rays. X-rays play an invaluable role in the diagnosis of dental problems, while also providing a clear picture for your dentist to accurately diagnose and provide the necessary dental treatments.
A small sensor will be placed in your mouth then an x-ray beam is sent through your teeth and into the sensor, which records the image of your teeth and sends it to the computer. The sensor can then be repositioned to take an image of other sections of your teeth.
A digital dental x-ray system is more sensitive than previous dental x-ray film systems, meaning your exposure to x-rays will be cut by as much as 90 percent. The large and color-enhanced images let you see what your dentist sees, so it’s easier for you to understand how your dentist will treat your teeth.
With digital x-rays your dental checkups take less time, your dental problems detected more efficiently, and treatments are given more accurately.
