At Healthy Smiles, digital x-rays are a vital and necessary step in diagnosing any dental condition. They allow us to identify an oral problem, treat it and eventually fix it.
In children, x-rays can be used to monitor erupting teeth, allowing the dentist to diagnose problems and prepare the dental treatment plan. If dental problems are identified and treated from the earliest stages, subsequent treatments will be much more comfortable for your child and cheaper at the same time.
Benefits of Digital X-Rays
The use of digital technology in x-rays provides benefits, such as:
- Reduction and calibration of the emitted dose of radiation
- Less time exposure
- Processing and archiving of the image
- Obtaining information in real time
The advantages of using a digital camera are certified in the field of radiological research, managing to reduce radiation up to 80%. The ability to process the dental image by computer is one of the greatest advantages that digital x-rays offer. Most digital sensors on the market have a higher image resolution than conventional film. This means that through digital x-rays, your dentist will be able to identify information about your teeth that would not be visible with conventional ones.
