Digital Radiographs Dental X-rays

The newer digital radiographs require a lower dosage of radiation than was previously required with traditional film x-ray machines. Digital X-rays produce high quality images that allow the dentist to see diseases and potential problem areas of the mouth. Dental X-rays are necessary for dentists as they provide them with a better representation of the teeth and surrounding tissues of the mouth that cannot be seen with an oral examination. The X-ray can potentially help the dentist find and treat problems in their earliest stages, which will allow for improved treatments that could potentially save you money and even more importantly, save you from any unnecessary discomfort.
