What are digital X-rays?

Digital X-rays are advanced imaging techniques used in dentistry that utilize electronic sensors to capture images of the teeth, gums and other oral structures. These X-rays are a modern alternative to traditional film-based X-rays and offer several advantages, such as faster image processing and reduced radiation exposure.

How are digital X-rays used?

Digital X-rays are used by our dentist to diagnose and monitor various oral health conditions. They provide detailed images of the teeth, roots and supporting bone structure, helping us identify dental issues such as:

  • Decay in between teeth
  • Developmental abnormalities
  • Improper tooth root positioning
  • Cysts and abscesses
  • Fractures in existing fillings
  • Tumors
  • Infection in the tooth nerves
  • Bone loss

These X-rays play a crucial role in treatment planning and ensuring comprehensive dental care. Our dentist may use your X-rays to plan oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, dental implant placement and other treatments to meet your needs and improve your oral health.

Are digital X-rays safe?

Yes! Digital X-rays are considered extremely safe. Compared to traditional X-rays, digital X-ray systems emit significantly lower levels of radiation, reducing the patient’s exposure. In fact, modern digital X-rays produce less radiation than what you are exposed to by the sun in your day-to-day life. Additionally, the technology allows for precise targeting, minimizing the need for retakes and further reducing radiation exposure. Our dentist and team also take additional precautions, such as inspecting our X-ray machines regularly to ensure they work properly and providing lead aprons as needed, to ensure patient safety when taking X-rays.
