Digital x-rays are now a great advancement compared to film x-rays. Using about half the radiation dose previously needed, we can view the same or better quality images on a large screen and store them with no physical degradation over time. Many people have concerns about the amount of radiation they receive. Actually, routine dental x-rays use only a fraction of the radiation that any person receives from natural, environmental sources each year. In addition, we follow a practice of taking only necessary x-rays for diagnosis, treatment planning, and proper dental care.
