Digital X-Rays


Times are changing and one of the biggest one’s to grace dentistry is the advent of digital x-rays. Much like digital cameras, the introduction of CMOS and CCD sensors has sparked a revolution in dentistry too.

There are many advantages to digital x-rays:
• Less radiation
• Superior image quality that is equal to film and meets the ADA Seal of Acceptance requirements.
• Able to enhance images if required
• Ability to demonstrate dental pathologies on a large screen
• Reduction of environmental pollutants

What is it?

The primary difference between conventional x-rays and digital x-rays is the presence of a sensor which replaces the old film packet. While a bit bulkier than film the sensor is easily placed and tolerated by the patient.


The sensor is much more sensitive to the x-ray produced by the x-ray tube head than film, thus resulting in exposures that are 80% less on average. This translates into less concern about the cumulative effects of x-ray radiation.

The image is available immediately which ensures a quick and accurate diagnosis of your particular problem.
