Until recently, our only option when taking dental X-rays was to use a traditional dental X-ray machine and expose a small film packet, which then took up to ten minutes to develop. Now, the digital era has allowed us to replace the film packet with a small sensor that connects directly to a computer.

Digital radiography has many advantages over traditional dental X-rays.
We can view the images on a computer screen within seconds, and the images are digitized much more quickly than traditional X-rays. We can enhance the images to make a more precise diagnosis. The process produces up to 90 percent less radiation, and we can store the images digitally on a computer.

How does it work?
Digital X-rays are much faster than traditional X-rays, because we don't need to re-load the film positioner; the sensor is simply moved from tooth to tooth. We also don't have to wait up to ten minutes for the film to develop; with digital radiography, we can see your X-ray in sharp, vivid detail on the computer monitor within seconds.
Thanks to the sharp images produced by digital radiography, we can see details and make adjustments that are a tremendous help in our diagnosis.

 

We can also save images in our computer system for instant retrieval at a later date. Once X-rays are digitized, we have the ability to send them to insurance companies or to a specialist via e-mail. And there's more good news; because of the shorter exposure time, the amount of X-ray radiation is reduced by as much as 90 percent.

Digital radiography enhances the comfort and efficiency of your dental visits, thanks to quicker, more accurate diagnosis.
