Digital Dental X-Rays are x-rays in which your dentist inserts a sensor into your mouth to capture images of your teeth. In the past, traditional dental x-rays have used an x-ray film to capture these images of your teeth as oppose to the new sensor method. The digital sensor that we now use for our x-rays is electronic and is directly connected to our computers. Once the x-ray is completed, the computer then displays the images of your teeth on the screen for your dentist to review.

- Radiation Reduction: One of the biggest benefits to digital x-rays is the significant reduction of radiation to your body. Digital x-rays can use up to +0% less radiation than traditional film x-rays.
- Higher Quality Imaging: Digital x-rays have made it easier to obtain better quality images when it comes to examining teeth. Digital images can be enlarged and adjusted to allow your dentist to view dental problems, such as cavities, easier to see.
- Faster & Easier Transportation: With digital x-rays being directly uploaded to your dentist’s computer, this makes it easier than ever for your dentist to transfer your dental records to another dentist or specialist. Dental x-ray images can now be easily emailed to another doctor for immediate viewing.
- Eco-Friendly: It’s a no brainer that digital x-rays are better for the environment. Since everything is done directly through digital computer systems, the use of chemicals to develop x-ray films has been eliminated.
