Digital x-rays take much crisper images and are also safer for both the patient and the technician. They require less radiation that standard radiographs used in the past. A small electronic sensor is placed in the mouth to capture an image, which can be immediately viewed. These images can be enlarged on the screen. This makes it much easier for you and the dentist to see the pictures. There is no chemical processing and nothing toxic to dispose of.
Digital x-rays are environmentally friendly. They eliminate the need for film and film processing chemicals. To learn more about how digital X-rays work, contact our office.
