How Does Digital X-Ray Work?

When you are going to a general dentistry practice, one of the first things the dentist will recommend is a digital x-ray. This modern method is faster and safer than traditional dental x-rays. It does not involve any caustic chemicals, and the overall radiation level is dramatically lower. If you are searching for a BBB-accredited dentist in King of Prussia, PA, you came to the right place.

For dental digital radiography, our clinician will simply put a very small sensor into your mouth. The sensor will take a detailed image not only of the tooth you are worried about, but also the gum and jaw structure. This innovative digital x-ray will give the dentist the most detailed, high-resolution image of the inside of your mouth.

What Are the Advantages of Dental Digital X-Ray?

Whether the patient needs child dental x-ray or a radiography that is safe for pregnant women, dental digital radiography is the solution. Among the most important benefits of this type of x-ray, we note:

  • 90% less radiation exposure for patients;
  • Immediate image viewing – very important in case of dental emergencies;
  • Dental offices no longer need to store toxic and caustic chemicals to process x-rays;
  • The dentist can easily show the x-ray to the patient, improving communication.

At the same time, digital x-ray in dentistry improves communication with insurance companies, as well. The x-ray can be transmitted in a few clicks on the computer and this will shorten the waiting period for payments and referrals.

What Can Dental Digital Radiography Reveal?

Child dental x-ray can help the dentist determine whether the baby teeth or the permanent teeth are developing correctly and in the right position. Also, being more detailed than traditional radiography, this type of x-ray may also reveal hidden problems, such as:

  • Bone loss;
  • Decay between the teeth;
  • Problems in the tooth root, below the gum line;
  • Cysts and abscesses.
