Posted by Gannon Lee on Feb 20 2022, 08:02 PM

Digital X-rays or radiographs are diagnostic instruments that help visualize the inner anatomy of parts of our body, and here in our practice for detailed information about your mouth. They help detect anomalies of your gums, teeth, detect abscesses, abnormal growths, etc. Digital X-rays have prevented the need for complicated procedures and have helped save and preserve the dental health as well as tooth structure of several patients. This state-of-the-art digital X-ray has revolutionized and enhanced dental care to the benefit of our patient's dental health.

What makes this technology different?

Digital X-rays make use of electronic sensors to capture images. The captured images can be instantly transferred to a computer screen.

Many patients ask us if they are safe! You don't need to have such a doubt in mind. The advanced digital X-rays cut a large amount of radiation from being exposed to the patient as much as by 90 percent, which makes it safe and harmless as a diagnostic dental tool.

What are the advantages of Digital X-rays?

Apart from minimizing the amount of exposure to radiation, digital X-rays offer many benefits to both the dentist and the patient. A few among the several benefits are listed below:

  • There's no chemical processing.
  • No waiting time which means it saves time!
  • Offers complete visual print of the oral cavity for a detailed diagnose

Some of the other benefits include:

  • Enhanced X-ray image quality

When it comes to digital X-rays, clarity and detail are a must. Digital X-rays offer high-quality images that surpass traditional films.

  • Easy to share and store

Organizing and sharing X-ray films across a health institution can be made easier with digital copies of X-rays. The use of digital radiography can ensure easy storage and movement of files.

  • Time and productivity savings

X-ray images reduce the need to wait. They can be instantly stored and readily viewed on the computer screen.

Since digital X-rays can be visually viewed on a computer screen, the records of X-rays taken at different times can be compared by using a technique that can highlight the differences between these images. Thus, the dentist can check the progress you are making with taking care of your oral health.
