Digital dental X-Rays also referred to as radiographs, provide crisp detailed images of your teeth and surrounding structures. Digital X-rays have much less radiation than conventional X-rays. Digital X-Rays can be viewed immediately. They provide better detail and a much easier transfer than compared to conventional X-rays. Taher Family Dental is proud to offer Digital dental X-Rays to our patients in West Boylston, Mass.
Conventional dental X-rays require film that needs to be developed. This often takes significant time. Digital X-rays are available instantly. There is no wait time for results. Digital X-rays allow for the manipulation of contrast and brightness. Through these edits, we are able to see areas more clearly. With this digital imagery, we are able to take measurements. These can help with tracking bone loss or even measuring the length of your tooth for a root canal. It is also key in planning for implant placement.
