Why Digital X-rays?









Before considering what digital intraoral x-ray system to purchase for your practice, it is important to understand how much more powerful every digital system is over traditional film x-rays


Less Radiation – Perhaps one of the most important features of digital x-rays is the sensors themselves require less radiation from the x-ray generator to “expose” the image. Compared to dental film, you can expect to need up to 90% less radiation depending on your exposure settings.


Exposure – Digital x-rays provide instant exposure. You do not have to mess around with chemicals, and you don’t have to spend time waiting for—or maintaining—the developer. Plus, there is no wasted time mounting the x-rays into holders.


Storage – Film x-rays must be stored in a patient’s chart, and this takes up physical space. Additionally, they degrade as time goes on. With digital x-rays, you have nearly unlimited storage on a hard drive. Because they are digital files, the x-rays themselves will never yellow or degrade over time.


Access – Because the x-rays are stored as files on a computer, you can have multiple people accessing the same image at one time. For example, while an assistant is capturing the x-rays in the operatory, the dentist could be reviewing the images from another room.


Patients – Patients are more aware than ever of the amount of radiation they are exposed to. They encounter it everywhere from hospital CT scans to airport screening systems. Besides limiting their radiation exposure, patients also benefit from improved communication. It is much easier for a patient to see an image on a screen than it is to squint at a tiny film x-ray.


Diagnostics – Digital x-rays can provide more image resolution than film. With most systems, you also can adjust the contrast to optimize the image for hard or soft tissue features, or to clarify the possible presence of decay.
