The first and most immediate way that digital X-rays are different from tradition X-rays is the way that the image is taken. Rather than film, this technology uses a digital sensor to capture the image of your teeth.

This means a few things. First is that the image is captured much more quickly, which in turn means that you are exposed to significantly less radiation that when film is used. The second is that there is no need to use chemicals in order to develop the film. This leads to the third benefit. Our dentists can immediately view these high-quality images and even share them with you.

With digital X-rays our dentists can provide accurate and efficient diagnoses and care, and you can understand your situation and treatment right along with them! Dental problem that are viewable on these X-rays include:
