Advantages of Digital Dental X-Rays

Digital Xray

What is dental digital x-ray? And why is it useful?

Digital radiography is a form of x-ray imaging where sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film intraoral, with sensors placed inside the mouth, the digital image runs through a cable that is link ta computer that interprets the signal and give as a top quality image, all this in less than 10 seconds.

Digital radiography reduces the patient’s exposure to radiation up to 80%.  Many patients are very relieved that digital radiology significantly lowers the amount of radiation they will receive.

Also is a way to preserve our planet, there is no chemical processing of the x-rays, eliminating the inconvenience and environmental impact associated with disposal of conventional film developers.

Digital X-rays facilitate communication with patients as well as other dentist.  The digital images are immediately available to view. Using current technology, it is very easy to enhance, enlarge, or refine the X-ray images. Brightness, color and/or contrast of digital X-rays can be adjusted without re-exposing the patient for another film.  Patients are now able to view their X-rays instantaneously on the computer monitor screens located chair side.

Now we can send the digital image to other doctors in a few minutes.  Often, while a patient is still seated in the dental chair, with this we can discuss treatment plans in minutes and in vivo.

The  digital X-ray images can be stored in each patient’s database on the computer and and the go in a cloud service, so easily retrieve this information when necessary.
