Low Dose Digital Dental X-Rays
Low-dose digital dental X-rays are a type of X-ray that uses less radiation than traditional film X-rays. This makes them safer for your child.
Low-dose digital dental X-rays use a sensor instead of film to capture images of the teeth and gums. The sensor is placed in the patient's mouth and converts the X-rays into digital data. This data is then sent to a computer, displaying it as an image.
Digital X-rays also have several other advantages over film X-rays, including:
- Better image quality. Digital X-rays produce images that are sharper and more detailed than film X-rays. This makes it easier for the dentist to see any problems with your teeth or gums.
- Faster diagnosis. Digital X-rays can be viewed immediately on a computer screen, allowing the dentist to diagnose more quickly.
- Easier storage. Digital X-rays can be stored electronically, which saves space and makes it easier for the dentist to access your records.
- Reduced radiation exposure. Digital X-rays use 90% less radiation than film X-rays, which is important for both the patient and the dentist.
