Rather than using traditional film, A digital x-ray allows us to take a digital image of the tooth or teeth with sensors and put it into an imaging program. Within our program, we are able to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding parts of your mouth with increased accuracy. Because of this method, the digital x-ray also provides almost 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray. We are happy that advances in technology allow us to keep the health of our patients in mind while still getting a great image.
