All we know as a dentists that dental x-rays are highly needed to help us find hidden dental decay, impacted teeth, show bone loss, cysts, abscesses and more.

The X-rays sensors have several advantages over the traditional X-rays. For instance:

  • Less Radiation: Digital X-rays provide an 80% reduction in radiation.
  • More Comfortable for You: Biting the paper tab used in taking traditional X-rays can be uncomfortable and push up against your mouth in awkward ways. Digital X-rays work differently by putting a small sensor in your mouth connected by a thin wire to a computer. X-rays are sent out to the sensor through your teeth to capture the image. The sensor can be moved to take other images.
  • Quick Developing: Typically they are ready in as short of a time as 3 seconds.
  • Magnified Images: Digital X-rays are easily displayed at larger sizes. We are even able to magnify the image to show you close up any tooth decay or abnormalities.
  • Earth Friendly: Digital X-rays are electronic so they save us from needing to use chemicals or film. They also make processing insurance claims faster.
  • Digital radiography produces larger photos to better source hard-to-see cavities.
  • Grey-scale of digital X-rays offers 256 shades of grey versus 16-25 shades in conventional radiography.
  • Digital radiography, though expensive to buy initially, is cheaper and more environmentally friendly in the long run.
  • You can enhance the digital image (such as alter brightness and contrast) with a series of processing techniques

Besides these advantages, X ray sensors are provided with powerful diagnostic softwares that would add more diagnostic abilities to the dentist.
