Dental Imaging: Things You Should Know

Advances in digital technology have brought us digital imaging. This is an advanced version of X-rays which expose the flaws in your teeth structure. However, sometimes an X-ray isn’t enough and the dentist needs to apply alternative technologies. This is where dental imaging comes into play. Dental imaging is used to evaluate cavities, dental infections and oral masses which can be both benign and severe.

Digital X-Rays

As the name suggests, this is a modern version of traditional X-rays by digital means. As technology has advanced, the dental industry is also marching ahead with improvements such as these. Taking X-rays digitally is more convenient and doing so produces better, more accurate and more reliable results than before. Digital X-rays are safer since they don’t generate exposure to harmful X-ray radiations.
