Digital X-rays are computer-generated images. These images require up to 90% less radiation than with conventional film type X-rays. Instead of using the traditional silver-oxide X-ray film that must be developed and then fixed in caustic and environmentally damaging solutions, the new system takes pictures via a small electronic sensor and instantaneously transmits a picture of the tooth onto the video monitor in the treatment room. Therefore, we can see your teeth and surrounding structures immediately with minimal radiation.
