Dental Digital Radiography is very similar to conventional radiography. The significant difference is that analog film is replaced by an electronic sensor. The electronic chip is far more sensitive than film; therefore significantly less radiation is required to provide an accurate image. This equates to much less x-ray exposure to the patient and a far lower radiation dosage than conventional film. Comparing digital and conventional radiography is unfair. Digital systems offer so many more options than film-based ones. The storage of digital information is far simpler than film allowing greater access and improved diagnosis. This is just one of the ways our office uses state of the art technology to improve the health of our patients.
