Digital x-rays benefit both dentist and patient. Most importantly, digital x-rays significantly decrease the exposure time to radiation. With a digital x-ray, we take a picture of your teeth, then almost immediately see it on a computer monitor. This large, color-enhanced image lets us get a better representation of your oral health, allowing for earlier diagnosis of problems and earlier treatment. This process is also better for the environment as it doesn’t use photo chemicals and traditional film, eliminating waste.
