Digital Versus Plain Film X-rays
Digital x-rays are starting to replace traditional plain film x-rays due to the ease of use, efficiency, and most importantly, the reduced amount of radiation needed and used.
Digital x-rays are taken with a specialized sensor that sends the image directly to the computer, where it can be viewed immediately.
With a plain film x-ray, if the image comes out too light or too dark, it would need to be retaken.
With a digital x-ray, you can adjust the x ray on the computer to allow for easier reading.
The dentist can also zoom in on specific areas of the x-ray and even create a larger image.
