Digital X-rays are the most popular choice of imaging among dentists. They allow a close-up and accurate view of your teeth as well as of surrounding dental structures. A digital x-ray involves taking images and then inserting the images into an imaging program for a detailed view of your teeth.
The biggest advantage of digital X-rays is that they give out 80% less radiation than conventional x-ray machines. Digital imaging is very advanced and has been specially designed with the requirements of dental patients in mind.
