What are digital x-rays?
Full mouth digital x-rays are becoming the go-to standard in general dentistry practices. Unlike traditional x-ray images that do not show clear detail and can expose patients to much more radiation, digital dental x-rays are growing in popularity. Digital dental x-rays are highly desirable because they:
- Reduce radiation exposure to 80-90% less than traditional x-rays
- Provide instant viewing of the imaging for faster diagnostics
- Allow the dentist to zoom into the image for a clearer view and increased detail
- Are safer technology that provides increased efficiency
- Are easy to store in the computer system for recall at a later time and better documentation
- Offer higher resolution images that lead to a more efficient diagnosis
- Safely offer x-ray images of a child’s teeth
What can digital dental x-rays be used for?
Digital dental x-rays are used for evaluating both children and adults to see the health of the smile underneath the gumline and inside of the teeth where a physical evaluation ends. X-rays help in planning orthodontic treatment, detecting early signs of decay and disease, and reveal infection and hidden dental abnormalities that may not be visible to our dental team. Certain procedures, such as the placement of dental implants, also benefit from x-rays for planning purposes.
