There are concerns about the safety of standard x-rays. But x-raying is an indispensable part of diagnosing and treating disease. How can we keep our patients' best interests at heart without compromising our evaluation of their health? Digital x-rays are one tool that allow us to do so. These diagnostic tools offer even clearer, easier-to-read results than traditional x-rays without the same potential harm.
Why Are X-Rays Important?
X-rays are our primary diagnostic tool in determining oral disease. There's only so much visible to the naked eye, and subtle signs of oncoming problems won't be noticeable without x-ray imaging. The problem with x-rays has long been the amount of radiation patients are exposed to during the process. Digital x-rays address this as just one of their aims, and go on to improve many other aspects of x-raying.
