Offering superior resolution with less radiation exposure, the digital radiograph x-ray is an excellent new way to help diagnose possible oral problems. The digital radiograph not only emits half the amount of radiation associated with traditional x-rays, but is also much less time consuming. The pictures are taken and immediately sent to our computer. We can then review the information with you right from the computer screen.
