Is there really a difference between digital and traditional x-rays? Both accurately show dentists your teeth, so why would dentists prefer one type of x-ray over the other? At Pearl Dentistry, we use digital x-rays to check on the oral health of our patients. Read on to learn why we prefer these over the traditional x-rays you might find in other dental offices.
Best For Patient Safety and Comfort
Digital x-rays use less radiation than traditional x-rays, making them the safest choice for our patients. Digital x-rays also spare you the discomfort of the heavy lead covering and large, bulky mouthpiece that is needed during a traditional x-ray.
Quick, Clear Images
Unlike traditional x-rays, digital x-rays are processed immediately. This means your dentist will be able to look at the images during your appointment and recommend treatments on the spot. These images are quick and convenient to view and archive, allowing your dentist to easily monitor changes in your x-rays over time.
