Speedy digital x-rays can now be taken using sensors that transmit the image directly into a computer monitor, within seconds. This larger image adds to the patient's understanding of the doctor's explanations, and it enables the doctor to "zoom in" on a specific area of the tooth.
Another important advantage of this new technology is that it reduces the amount of radiation by 90%. In other words, you get more radiation by working in your garden for 10 minutes than you do with our x-rays. Plus, digital
x-rays are friendlier to the environment since no
chemicals are needed for developing the image.
