Digital x-rays are a type of dental imaging that allows us to store and send images directly to a computer. We can view the digitally perfect images and share them with you on a monitor so you can see exactly what we see. Additionally, digital x-rays offer several other advantages over traditional film x-rays. The software lets us enlarge the image, which helps Dr. Sung see even the tiniest changes, which wouldn't be seen during a visual oral exam. Our wide screen monitor makes it easy for us to share the images with you so you can better understand the need for treatment.
Digital x-rays are safer for you because they significantly reduce your exposure to radiation. State-of-the-art digital images are also better for the environment since we don’t have to worry about safely disposing of potentially hazardous materials used with traditional film x-rays. Digital images can also easily be sent electronically to a specialist as needed.
