A dental digital x-ray system allows us to take a picture of your teeth, and then almost instantly show it to you on a computer monitor while you are in the dental chair.
The on-screen picture will look like a dental X-ray image but a lot bigger…500% bigger! The dentist can zoom in on a single tooth or a set of teeth so that treatment procedures can be explained visually. The large images let you see what your dentist sees, so it’s easier for you to understand how your dentist will treat your teeth
As digital dental x-rays are more sensitive than regular dental x-ray films, your exposure to x-ray radiations is reduced by as much as 90%. The dental team also receives less exposure. Furthermore, the developer and processing chemicals that can potentially harm the environment are no longer needed.
