What Are Digital X-Rays?
Digital x-rays are x-rays taken of the oral cavity, including the teeth, gums, and mouth using digital sensors instead of traditional radiography film. They are also called digital dental radiographs and are used to diagnose dental issues in the same way that traditional x-rays are used. Digital dental x-rays produce superior images to traditional x-rays.
How Are Digital X-Rays Different Than Traditional X-Rays?
Digital x-rays use digital sensors to create computerized images of your mouth. Traditional x-rays utilize a special type of photographic film, called radiography film, to capture these same images. Those images then must be developed and, if they do not come out properly, retaken.
