Digital X-Rays

This technology is not new technology but it is very important in that 50% of the dental offices in this country still use traditional outdated film and chemical development to create Dental X-Rays. Digital X-Rays are captured through a sensor on to a computer and stored in the patient's permanent file. There is no chemical processing as with film X-Rays. These X-Rays can then be shown on a TV Monitior and blown up to full screen allowing the Dentist and the patient to view them together to discuss what the image has to offer.

The advantages of Digital Radiography:

- There is 50% less radiation exposure compared to film

- It is faster allowing nearly instantaneous viewing

- It is better for the environment as no chemicals are flushed down the drain

- The image can be enlarged  50 times  larger than film size

- Viewing and understanding by the patient is possible

- Images are stored digitally and can be emailed to other parties; insurance companies or Dental Offices.
