Why Do We Use Digital Dental X-Rays?
How are Digital X-Rays Taken?
Digital dental X-Rays are faster and more comfortable than traditional dental X-Rays. To perform a digital dental X-Ray we place a small sensor in your mouth which is connected to a computer by a tiny wire. An X-Ray beam is then sent through your teeth, recording an image of your teeth, jaw bone and support structures which are then sent to a computer. The sensor can then be repositioned to capture other sections of your mouth. These images are proceeded by the computer, rather than needing to be developed on traditional film. This eliminates the need for toxic developing chemicals as well as increasing the speed and accuracy of the image.
