Dental digital X-rays, also known as radiographs, are valuable diagnostic tools used to assess and monitor oral health. Unlike traditional film-based X-rays, digital X-rays use electronic sensors to capture images of the teeth, gums, and jawbones.
Digital X-rays offer numerous advantages. They emit significantly less radiation, making them safer for patients. The images are produced quickly and can be viewed instantly on a computer screen, allowing for immediate analysis and discussion of treatment options. Additionally, digital X-rays can be easily stored, shared, and compared over time, aiding in the detection of subtle changes or potential issues.
