Why Use Digital Radiographs?
Digital radiography provides a higher quality of dental care. A primary benefit of digital x-ray equipment is the reduction in radiation exposure. A common concern among patients is their amount of exposure to radiation. Unlike conventional radiography, digital radiography reduces patient’s radiation exposure by seventy-five percent or more.
How are Digital Radiographs Taken?
Capturing digital radiographs and traditional-style radiographs are similar. However, digital radiographs use a small electronic sensory which is placed in the mouth to record images rather than film bitewings. The digital images can be transferred wirelessly to a computer or the plate can be removed from the mouth and scanned with a specialized reader. The images are viewed on a computer screen and can be altered.
