Dental Digital X-Rays

Digital X-Ray SensorDigital radiography is the type of dental imaging that replaces traditional photographic dental film with a digital sensor producing enhanced computer images of teeth and soft tissues. The image can then be stored and manipulated for optimal diagnostic results. Benefits of Digital Radiology include:

 

  • Enhanced Contrast – digital radiographs reveal the smallest areas of decay
  • Radiation Safety – digital radiographs require 70 to 90 percent less radiation than film
  • Speed – digital radiographs can be viewed instantly and transmitted electronically between practitioners
  • Image Manipulation – digital images can be adjusted to enhance contrast and detail
  • “Greener” Alternative – digital images eliminate chemical processing and disposal of hazardous waste such as lead foil
