Digital x-rays are the standard for modern dental offices, and what we use at Jennifer H. Cho DDS, FAGD Family & Cosmetic Dentistry.
With 80% less radiation than traditional x-rays, digital radiography is quicker, safer, more comfortable, and convenient.
Another benefit of digital x-rays is that they provide more diagnostic information. It is much easier to clearly see cavities, bone loss, abscesses, and various other non-painful dental conditions on digital x-rays compared totraditional.
Certain dental conditions do not have symptoms, and cannot be seen with the naked eye, and digital radiographs can be used to catch these issues early on, where early intervention lead to much better treatment choices and results.
Taking x-rays is an important part of your care routine, and making sure to update them yearly can help you maintain optimal oral health.
