Why do we use digital x-rays?
1. Less Radiation
Digital X-Rays emit a lot less radiation than traditional x-rays, which already emit a very small amount of radiation.
2. Higher-Resolution Images
They can pick up more detailed images than regular x-rays.
3. Shorter Appointments
Digital x-rays appear immediately on the screen, so you don't have to wait for them to be developed.
Not only are digital x-rays better for you, but they are better for the environment: traditional x-rays require lead foils and toxic photochemicals that are not necessary with digital x-rays. This is one more reason you can feel good about going to the dentist!
