Digital radiographs are much like traditional x-rays. However, they utilize much less radiation, expose the patient to less radiation and don’t require the film to actually be developed. Within minutes of your digital x-rays being taken, your dentist will be able to view the images of your smile, even being able to zoom in, making it easier for them to detect and diagnose decay or cavities. Due to the fact digital x-rays are uploaded to the computer, they can also be easily transferred to another specialist or even given to the patient.
As mentioned before, traditional film x-rays actually expose the patient to quite a bit of radiation. Along with exposing the patient to excessive radiation, traditional x-rays also utilize a lot more radiation, making them less safe and healthy for Earth as well. With our digital radiographs, we can ensure our patients and planet are a bit healthier.
