Digital x-rays offer a number of advantages over older, film-based x-rays. For starters, they use considerably less radiation, making them the safest option out there!
Other benefits of digital x-rays include:
- Virtually instant processing, reducing your time spent waiting
- Viewable on chairside monitors so we can clearly explain our findings and educate you about your treatment options
- High-definition images can be enlarged and enhanced in several ways to better illustrate our conversation
- Stored in your electronic file for easy access, retrieval, and comparison
- Easily transferred electronically to insurance providers or specialists
- Better for the environment since no chemicals are needed for processing and space is not required for film storage
