The old-fashioned, uncomfortable, traditional dental x-ray is a thing of the past. Digital radiography has not only sped up the x-ray process, these modern x-ray machines give off much less radiation, making them safer for all patients.
In addition, both dentist and patient can view digital x-rays immediately. The images created by these x-rays can also be enhanced, showing a level of detail that is just not possible with traditional x-rays. The results can easily be emailed to specialists or your insurance company, offering a much higher level of convenience.
