Why digital radiography is better?

Posted .

We value your time which is why we focus on delivering top-notch service in the shortest time. Digital radiography now enables our professionals to get a clear x-ray of your teeth without having to send you to a secondary location or make you wait before the results come in.

Digital radiography is quick, efficient, and offers instant results. This helps our professionals to begin treatment promptly with the right steps.


Traditional x-rays were known to be harmful because of the radiation they emitted. This is what gave rise to the myth that pregnant women should not visit us. Digital radiography, however, is safer thereby enabling people to get comprehensive x-rays of their mouth, irrespective of their medical condition.

Digital radiography is more accurate and is also more comfortable as compared to traditional x-rays. Our professionals can get scans of your teeth on the computer within minutes. These images can also be saved for future reference. This means if you are going through multiple dental procedures, these records come in handy to check the progress of your recovery.


Traditional x-rays require the use of chemicals that are harmful to the environment. Certain studies also reveal that inhaling or ingesting these chemicals could have adverse health effects. Digital radiography, on the other hand, is safe and does not involve the use of any harsh chemicals.

We also recommend not printing these records and instead receive them by email so you can save paper and contribute towards a greener environment.
Let’s not forget, digital radiography is a quick solution. If you are suffering from unbearable pain in your tooth, you no longer have to wait for x-rays to develop to know what is causing the pain. Accurate and timely delivery of digital radiography images enables our professionals to provide you with solutions that will help save time and money.
