Digital X-rays are tools used to diagnose conditions of the mouth that are not visible to the naked eye, such as early tooth decay, periodontal disease, and abscesses. Modern X-ray technology has made diagnosis safe and beneficial.
What are digital X-rays?
Digital X-rays use electronic sensors to capture images of the teeth and gums and have them automatically visualized on computer screens for a better understanding of dental anatomy.
Digital X-rays are known to minimize radiation exposure by about 50% compared to conventional X-rays.
What are the advantages of digital X-rays?
Digital X-rays offer numerous advantages to both the dentist and the patient, such as:
- Less waiting time
- Lesser amounts of radiation
