Digital X-ray Technology

The computer era has brought us an exciting new technology called digital radiography.

With this technology we use computerized equipment and software to capture x-ray images of your mouth and teeth. We do this by exposing a small sensor or plate that feeds the image into a computer.

Digital radiography has many advantages over traditional x-rays:

  • It's faster.
  • It's safer, with no chemical development and less radiation.
  • We can view images instantly.
  • We can enhance images to improve viewing.
  • Images can be stored electronically and e-mailed to specialists and insurance companies.
