Why our practice is excited to provide digital x-rays

Dr. Steve Dugan of Dugan Family Dentistry in Wichita, Kansas, is pleased to offer digital x-rays within his practice. Digital x-rays offer several benefits over conventional film x-rays. They expose patients to less radiation and produce high-quality images. This makes them a highly desirable option compared to conventional methods at other dental practices.

Benefits of digital dental radiography:

  • Less radiation exposure. One of the main benefits patients receive from digital x-rays dental imaging is less radiation exposure. Traditional radiography exposes patients to a small amount of ionizing radiation. This is the type of radiation that can potentially damage cells and DNA. However, with digital x-rays, the amount of ionizing radiation is up to 90% less than with film x-rays. This means that patients can receive the dental care they need without worrying about the potential risks associated with radiation exposure.
  • High-quality images. Another benefit of digital x-rays and digital dental scans is that they produce high-quality images. This is because digital x-rays use a digital sensor instead of film. The digital sensor can capture a clear picture of the teeth and jaws, which allows the dentist to identify any problems that may be present more easily. These images can also be easily stored in a computer and brought up when needed for zooming in and out on the treatment monitor.
