How Do Digital X-Rays Work?
Digital radiography is considered to be one of the finest accomplishments in modern dentistry.
Contrary to traditional x-ray methods, which made use of developing a light-sensitive film, digital x-rays make use of a digital-detector system to process images. X-ray beams are directed at the examined area and are immediately and intelligently caught by the digital sensor, which then immediately transmits the image to a computer for viewing and storage.
When compared with the traditional methods of taking, developing, and storing x-rays, it’s quite clear that digital x-rays provide a substantial improvement.
Why Invest in Digital Dental X-Rays?
Digital x-rays can be beneficial for your practice in multiple different ways:
- Improved image quality and accuracy
- Image is produced almost instantly- no more wasted time waiting for development
- Resulting images can be enlarged, colorized, or printed if needed
- Digital images are quickly and easily stored in the patient’s file for further reference
- Better for the health of both your staff as well as the environment: no harmful chemicals
- Much less radiation generated: 80-90% less, to be exact.
- Shorter exposure time
- More cost-effective; no costs after initial investment
What’s more is that most digital x-ray systems boast an extremely simple set-up process; simply plug the system into your computer’s USB and you’re ready to go once setup has completed.
With so many benefits to using digital dental x-rays, it’s easy to see why as of 2020, 66% of dentists reported that they had ditched traditional x-ray methods and gone digital.
