Digital X-rays offer some distinct advantages over traditional film x-rays. Foremost is reduced radiation exposure by as much as 75%, which makes dental x-ray safer in regard to radiation exposure. The process of digital x-ray takes only seconds. Digital x-rays creates computer-based images. With the large, colour-enhanced images, you see what your dentist sees for a better understanding of the treatment recommended. With both of you looking at the screen together, it is easier for you and your dentist to co-diagnose and make informed treatment decisions. Also, if needed, a copy of your digital x-ray can be sent to you by email. Very soon, we will be able to help you to send your digital x- ray to your insurance electronically for crown, bridge and implant estimates.
