Interested in learning more about digital x-rays from Redmond Art of Dentistry? Here’s some informative details about how this advanced form of radiography works, and the benefits of digital x-ray technology.
Traditional vs. Digital X-Rays
Traditional x-rays actually expose photographic film to x-ray particles, just like an old-fashioned camera. Rather than using photographic film, digital x-rays use a specialized, modern image sensor to capture high-resolution, high-quality x-rays in just a few moments, just like a digital camera.
This means that digital x-rays are available for viewing within just a few moments of being captured. Not only that, but digital images can more easily be manipulated and filtered by Dr. Bickel, which makes it easier to diagnose tricky oral health issues. During your appointment, Dr. Bickel will show you the images and help you understand any oral health issues that may be present.
What Are The Benefits Of Digital X-Rays?
Digital x-rays are much better than traditional film-based x-rays for a number of reasons. Here are just a few:
- Faster, more accurate diagnoses: Traditional, film-based x-rays take a little while to set up, and the x-ray exposure must be developed by the dentist, which means it may take several minutes before your x-rays are available. In addition, they may need to be re-shot if the exposure is inadequate.
- Lower exposure to radiation: Digital x-rays don’t require as much radiation as film-based x-rays, which makes them safer, especially for smaller children.
- Less waiting in the dentist’s office: Because digital x-rays are nearly instantaneous, you spend less time in the dentist’s chair, and less time in the waiting room!
- Environmentally-friendly: Digital x-rays do not require any volatile chemical developing agents that are harmful to the environment, and because physical film is not required, they have a smaller carbon footprint.
Because they’re faster, more accurate, and emit a lower level of radiation than traditional x-rays, digital imaging is becoming much more popular and common in modern dental offices.
