The latest science
The most up-to-date form of dental x-ray imaging is digital radiography. Images can be stored electronically for quality as well as convenience. Digital x-ray exposure is much shorter than conventional x-rays, which means radiation exposure is reduced by up to 90 percent.
A small sensor is connected directly to a computer instead of a film packet. The x-rays are available immediately on the computer monitor, with no development step in between. This process allows dental professionals make the most accurate diagnosis, and quickly develop treatment plans.
