Dental Digital X-Rays
Digital technology makes dental X-rays safer and more convenient. While dental X-rays generally emit only a small amount of radiation and precautions are taken to protect patients from exposure, some dental patients may still put off dental X-rays for safety reasons or concerns. Dental X-rays pose other issues for patients, including long wait time for film development and even environmental concerns. Dentists are addressing these issues with digital radiography, a high-tech replacement for traditional dental X-rays.
With digital x-rays, there is very little wait time, and the photographs are available within minutes. No more long wait times! Additionally, digital x-rays emit up to 10 times less radiation than conventional analog x-ray machines.
