Digital X-Ray Technology
The Technology Behind Digital X-Rays help Dentists
Dentists have always yearned to get a better look at a patient's teeth. Digital X-rays are making it happen.
Digital X-ray technology is becoming the norm throughout dentistry because digital imagery allows a dentist to get a more precise view of a decayed or damaged tooth. Once the X-ray is taken, the image is placed in a computer imaging program.
Within the imaging program, tools allow the dentist to zero in on precise areas of the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy. Digital X-rays also produce almost 80 percent less radiation than a traditional X-ray.
