Digital x-rays are quickly being adopted by a large percentage of the dental industry. A digital x-ray allows the dentist to take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program. Within this imaging program, there are a number of tools that will allow the dentist to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy. A wonderful benefit to the patient is that digital radiography also requires nearly 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray. This is due to the fact that the digital x-ray sensor is much more sensitive to this radiation and has been specifically designed with the patient in mind. Many patients comment how much more comfortable the digital sensor is compared to film. We are happy to utilize digital x-rays in our office!
