How Do Digital X-Rays Work?
Instead of having to rely on traditional film that’s slowly developed in a darkroom, digital X-rays are easily captured with high-tech cameras and transferred to our computer system within seconds – no waiting required! Our team strongly recommends that children undergo basic X-rays every year, with comprehensive panoramic X-rays captured every three years on average. These high-definition images can also be easily and quickly shared with parents, orthodontics, insurance companies, and more via e-mail.
Other benefits of using digital X-rays include:
- Once the images are successfully captured, our team can magnify them, rotate them, and even color-code them so that children and parents alike better understand what they’re looking at!
- There’s no hazardous chemical use with digital X-rays, and the images are all stored digitally, which is much better for the environment as well.
- Digital X-rays reduce radiation exposure by anywhere from 40%-80% when compared to traditional X-rays, which means they’re even safer for your loved one.
