Digital x-rays are quickly becoming adopted by a large percentage of the dental industry. A digital x-ray allows the dentist to take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program. Within this imaging program, there are a number of tools that will allow the dentist to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy. As a benefit to the patient, we now have a new very low dose digital x-ray unit. The digital version of the x-ray is much more sensitive to this radiation and has been specifically designed with the patient in mind.
