Digital X-Rays


Digital X-rays are a modern imaging technology that allows us to capture detailed images of your teeth, jawbone, and surrounding oral structures. Unlike traditional film-based X-rays, digital X-rays use electronic sensors to capture the images, which are then instantly displayed on a computer screen. These digital images provide exceptional clarity and can be easily enhanced for better analysis and treatment planning.


During a digital X-ray procedure, you will be comfortably positioned, and a small sensor will be placed in your mouth to capture the images. The sensor emits a minimal amount of radiation, significantly reducing exposure compared to traditional X-rays. The process is quick and painless, and the images are available for immediate viewing, eliminating the wait time associated with film development.


  • Reduced Radiation Exposure: Digital X-rays use up to 80% less radiation than traditional X-rays, ensuring the safety and well-being of our patients.
  • Enhanced Diagnosis and Treatment Planning: The high-quality images produced by digital X-rays enable our dental professionals to detect dental issues, such as cavities, infections, and bone abnormalities, with greater accuracy. This allows for timely and precise treatment planning.
  • Improved Patient Experience: Digital X-rays are more comfortable and efficient, eliminating the need for uncomfortable film placement and development. The images can be easily stored, retrieved, and shared with specialists or insurance providers as needed.
  • Environmental Friendliness: Digital X-rays are eco-friendly as they eliminate the need for chemicals and film processing, reducing waste and contributing to a greener dental practice.
