X-rays are an important part of your dental exam, because many problems with the teeth, roots, and jawbones cannot be seen without them. Digital X-rays use smooth sensors so there is no need for the sharp film that pokes your cheeks and gum like with traditional X-rays.
Because digital X-ray images don’t require any chemical processing, they are available within seconds. Digital X-rays are safe, too. Some studies have shown that they emit up to 90% less radiation than conventional X-rays! If it’s been a while since your last checkup, we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the comfort and speed of digital X-rays!
