Digital Low-Dose X-Rays

Many patients come into our office with concerns about X-rays, which is very warranted as it is an imaging system that penetrates your body using electromagnetic radiation. However, as technology continues to improve, X-rays are now omitting much less radiation than ever before. At Dental Healing Arts, it’s important to us that we provide a safe environment for our patients.

What Are Digital Low-Dose X-Rays?

Digital X-rays use sensors connected to a computer rather than capturing the image on film as was done in the past. They are comparable to how we have digital cameras on our phones compared to the film-based cameras of the past.

This imaging system can detect cavities, cracks, and infections so you can get necessary treatment as soon as you need it.

Digital X-Rays vs. Traditional X-Rays

Even though the idea of radiation might make you nervous, with adequate lead apron and neck protection, traditional film x-rays have been considered relatively safe for decades. But as the world is always looking to advance, advances in digital x-ray technology did keep up with the times.  Current digital sensor technology has improved so much that it allowed a decrease of up to 80-90% radiation exposure needed to create a digital image compared to the traditional film image.

Digital X-rays are also much more convenient since they don’t require the use of non-ecofriendly photographic film or harmful chemicals. The digital images are instantly available to view on a computer screen in high-definition quality. There’s no need to worry about transporting physical copies as they can be accessed on any device through the internet or external hard drive storage.

What Are the Benefits of Digital Low-Dose X-Rays?

  • No harmful chemicals
  • 80-90% less exposure to radiation
  • Increased image quality that can easily be resized
  • Better accuracy
