How Digital Dental X-Rays Work
We place a small sensor in your mouth. The sensor is connected to a computer by a thin wire. Next, an X-ray beam is sent through your teeth and into the sensor, which records the image of your teeth and sends it to the computer. The sensor can then be repositioned to photograph other sections of your teeth.
Why Digital Dental X-Rays are Better
The digital dental X-ray system is more sensitive than dental X-ray film systems, so your exposure to X-rays is cut by as much as 90 percent. The large, color-enhanced images let you see what your doctor sees, so it's easier for you to understand how Dr.Diaz will treat your teeth. There are no photo chemicals, film, processing or film storage, therefore used photo chemicals and film are not polluting the environment. Your dental checkups take less time, and it's fun to watch this system work! Most patients are truly amazed.
