Although digital X-ray equipment is much more expensive than the traditional X-ray machine, the advantages to our patients and our dentists is tremendous.
Our dentists can diagnose cavities much better as digital x-rays tend to be much more clear compared to film based x-rays. Patients can also see for themselves as to how their dental health is, including things like infections, minor cavities, bone loss, tooth eruption etc. as digital X-rays can be magnified and seen in different shades. As an added benefit, the environment is also saved as no chemicals are used in the process.
