Digital x-rays are a much faster and safer way of taking x-rays in the dental office. These x-rays actually produce 80% less radiation then the older traditional systems that are still used today in many dental practices. With the digital system, the x-ray will appear right away on the computer. This will view your teeth in an advanced way and the health care professional is able to zoom in and out and reveal more of the x-ray. This will allow for a better understanding of the condition of your teeth.
