Dental X-rays and imaging allow dentists to see beneath the surface of teeth and find cavities or other tooth problems before they become painful. Modern technology like digital dental radiography has many advantages over traditional X-rays and is safer for patients.
Keep reading to learn about the benefits of digital dental radiography.
Digital dental radiography provides dentists with digital photos of the teeth and mouth. Much like an X-ray, digital dental radiography allows dental hygienists and dentists to see cavities and decay below the gums and between teeth.
While X-rays are taken using film, digital dental radiography allows dentists to see images of patients’ teeth instantly on a computer.
Though both X-rays and digital dental radiography take photos of teeth, there are some advantages to digital radiography.
Only dental radiography is able to see beneath the gums to see how teeth are developing and whether cavities are forming.
