Digital X-Ray FAQ

How do digital X-rays differ from traditional film X-rays?

Digital X-rays use electronic sensors to capture images, which are then processed and displayed on a computer screen. Traditional film X-rays, on the other hand, involve using photographic film. Digital X-rays provide several advantages, including faster image acquisition, lower radiation doses, and the ability to enhance and share images more easily.

Are digital X-rays safe, and do they expose patients to less radiation?

Digital X-rays are considered safe and expose patients to significantly less radiation than traditional film X-rays. The digital sensors used in this technology are more sensitive, requiring less radiation to produce high-quality images. Additionally, dentists take precautions, such as lead aprons, to further minimize radiation exposure.

How quickly can digital X-ray images be viewed by the dentist?

One of the advantages of digital X-rays is the immediate availability of images. The images can be viewed on a computer screen within seconds of being taken, allowing the dentist to assess and discuss the findings with the patient during the same appointment. This quick  turnaround is particularly beneficial for treatment planning.

Do digital X-rays offer better image quality compared to traditional X-rays?

Digital X-rays often provide comparable or even better image quality than traditional film X-rays. The digital technology allows for image enhancement and manipulation, aiding in better visualization of dental structures. Additionally, digital X-rays can be easily archived and retrieved for future reference, contributing to more efficient record-keeping.
