A digital x-ray allows us 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 us to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy. As a benefit to the patient, the digital x-ray also provides nearly 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray. This is due to the fact that the digital version of the x-ray is much more sensitive to this radiation and has been specifically designed with the patient in mind. Another advantage of ditial x-rays is the image can be sent to a monitor or computer screen so the patient can see the image while Dr. Coulter explains your treatment plan.
