Digital x-rays are a type of dental imaging that allows us to send images directly to a computer for storage. In just a few moments, we can view the digitally perfect images on a monitor screen.
Additionally, digital x-rays offer several other advantages over traditional film x-rays. For example, the software allows us to enhance and enlarge the image, which helps our dentist see even more.
Digital images are convenient because they also be sent electronically as needed. Digital images are safer for you because they significantly reduce the amount of radiation by about 90% compared to traditional x-rays. Finally, digital images are better for the environment since we don’t have to dispose of the potentially hazardous materials used with film x-rays.
