Digital X-rays

Digital dental X-rays

X-rays remain an important part of dental examinations to diagnose problems with teeth; they are recommended yearly. It is a painless process that involves taking a bite on a small tab, which steadies the X-ray film in your mouth while the dentist positions the X-ray beam to take the picture. Newer digital X-rays come up on a computer screen almost immediately and include 90% less radiation than conventional film techniques.
