Digital X-rays are a type of digital radiography that uses an electronic sensor to capture images of the inside of the body. These images are then transmitted instantly to a computer for further analysis.
Digital X-rays offer a number of advantages over traditional X-ray film. For one, they can be viewed immediately on a computer screen, which allows for quicker diagnosis and treatment. Additionally, digital X-rays can be enhanced or enlarged for better clarity, and they can be stored electronically for easy access and retrieval. X-rays also produce less radiation than film radiography. In fact, they produce up to 90% less radiation than traditional X-rays, giving off less radiation than what you are exposed to by the sun in your day-to-day life. This makes digital X-rays very safe for all patients.
Digital X-rays are highly versatile, and they can be used to diagnose a wide range of dental problems, from tooth decay and improper tooth root positioning to developmental abnormalities, tumors, fractures, infection, bone loss, cysts and abscesses. Once you are diagnosed, your X-rays are then used to create your treatment plan and ensure that our dentist can provide you with the highest possible quality of care. X-rays are used in many different treatment plans, including oral surgery procedures, root canal treatments, implant placement and orthodontic care.
Overall, digital X-rays are more efficient and offer greater flexibility than traditional X-rays. They are an important tool in the diagnosis and treatment of many medical conditions. Give us a call today to find out more and schedule an appointment with our dentist!
