| Digital X-Rays are Safe
Since we only use digital radiography or digital X-rays, our X-ray imaging technology is completely safe. In digital X-ray imaging, digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Digital x-rays saves time because it bypasses chemical processing and we can digitally transfer and enhance the images. More importantly, however, less radiation is used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography. Digital X-rays emit about 1/10th of the radiation emitted by traditional X-ray film, which means that you and your family remain safe throughout your appointment.
Digital X-rays capture and store the digital images of your teeth, which allow Dr. Gary Cash and our dental team to view them instantly. Please let us know if you have questions about digital X-rays or any of the other dental technologies we use.
