Benefits of Digital X-Rays
Digital X-rays make dental operations and your dental experience convenient.
As you can see, digital X-rays are definitely desirable. This advanced medical technology is transforming the dental industry and patients’ dental experiences alike.
1. Decreased Exposure to Radiation
The truth about most medical technology is that they contain high levels of radiation which may create long-term problems in patients such as cancerous tumors. Many dentists rely on film-based X-rays but these systems are outdated and less safe. Digital X-ray systems are more compact and do not transmit as much radiation as film-based X-ray systems.
2. Patient Comfort
Digital X-ray systems allow you to experience ease and comfort. Instead of awkward head positions and painful mouth insertions, the tools for digital X-rays are small and comfortable.
Digital X-ray systems are much more efficient than film-based X-ray systems. Pictures are generated quickly and are easily transmitted. They can be sent via emails and other online services. Further, the quality of the pictures are excellent and can be manipulated according to your needs. Images can be magnified, sharpened or molded into a negative view. As a result, our dental professionals are able to detect all of your oral problems easily and correctly.
4. Environmentally Friendly
Because images generated through digital X-rays can be uploaded and transferred online, it does not require paper and stamps. An eco-friendly, paperless alternative to performing high-quality oral X-rays is a bonus!
