Digital radiography is a vital part of preventive and diagnostic dental care, as well as planning for cosmetic and restorative treatment plans. Like traditional radiography, digital X-rays produce clear images of the teeth, roots, and jawbone structure that make up your smile. However, unlike conventional X-rays, digital radiography is significantly safer for patients of all ages, is faster to develop than photography-based X-rays, and can save you time during your next dental visit.
Benefits of Digital Dental X-Rays
There are several benefits to using digital dental X-rays, including;
- Safety – Compared to traditional X-ray technology, digital radiography produces up to 90% less radiation, making the procedure safe for a wider range of patients.
- Speed – Digital X-rays are captured using digital technology, and the images are immediately projected onto a chairside monitor, where you can view them alongside your dentist. You don’t have to wait for digital X-rays to be processed, as you do with photography-based X-rays.
- Accuracy – Like most digital pictures, digital X-rays are noticeably more precise and accurate than traditional photos. Digital images produce unmatched clarity, and your X-rays can be enhanced to focus on a specific area of your mouth without losing any of the image’s resolution.
- Better dental treatment – With quicker, safer, and more precise diagnostic imaging, your dentist can more accurately design a treatment plan to optimize your smile’s health and appearance.
