The Digital Advantage in X-Rays
Digital radiography (digital x-ray) is the latest technology available to take dental x-rays without using traditional levels of radiation. Dental x-rays can provide valuable information that is unseen to the dentist.
Are dental x-rays safe?
Digital x-rays are very safe for the patient – extremely low levels of radiation is used to create the images – This type of x-ray reduces radiation 80-90% compared to the exposure of traditional dental x-rays.
Dr. Goldberg and his team still take necessary precautions to limit the patient’s exposure to radiation. These precautions include only taking those x-rays that are necessary and using lead apron shields to protect the body.
