What are Digital X-Rays?
The process of capturing a digital X-ray is similar to traditional X-rays that use film. To create a digital X-ray, your dentist will insert a sensor into your mouth to capture images of your teeth.
The difference between digital X-rays and X-rays is that the digital X-ray sensor is attached to a computer. Once the X-ray is taken, the image is immediately projected onto the computer screen for your dentist or periodontist view.
