Radiographs (x-ray images) are an integral part of dental treatment as they allow us to diagnose pathologies that cannot be seen with the naked eye alone. Digital imaging enables us to take radiographs quickly without the need for developing the film. This allows us to save time and create an image on screen that is large enough for you to see.
Most importantly, digital radiographs greatly reduce the amount of radiation that a patient is exposed to; an important factor to consider in this technological time.
