Convenient And Easy
Digital radiography is a digital x-ray of your mouth that comes up on a computer screen. A small chip is placed inside your mouth and this helps generate the x-ray. It doesn't take more than a few seconds for the image to show up and since there is no big heavy machinery required, it's done on the dentist chair by our professionals. This is a lot easier than a traditional x-ray and the best part about it is you do not have to go to multiple places to get the x-ray. It works well for people who are in a time crunch and still want to figure out what's going wrong in their mouths. It prevents the delay of addressing a dental issue even if you are short on time.
Although digital radiography is done quickly, the quality of the image is a lot better than a traditional x-ray. This helps our professionals understand exactly what has gone wrong within a matter of minutes and they can start addressing the problem without any delay. Digital radiography is also a lot safer in comparison to traditional x-rays and this is why it's a better option for children and pregnant women.
Like all other fields of medicine, it's always better when our professionals have a detailed history of your dental and medical records. With the help of a digital radiography image, these records can now be maintained with precision. This not only helps maintain transparency between our professionals and our patients, but it also helps us to provide quicker and more accurate solutions for dental problems. It also helps us foresee any possible dental issues and this helps us to stay in control of the situation effectively. It also works well when patients are going through a lengthy dental procedure, for example, fixing crooked teeth, an overbite, or an underbite. These digital radiography images help patients to see the progress month after month and it gives them motivation and a sense of positivity.
These images are also a lot easier to understand as compared to traditional x-rays. This makes it convenient for our professionals to walk patients through various dental procedures and help them understand how these procedures will benefit them in the long run.
They say that ‘seeing is believing’ and with digital radiography, it's possible for patients to now see dental issues and monitor progress. This bridges the gap of communication between our professionals and patients and it makes it a lot easier for patients to get comfortable, even if the procedure is a little invasive.
