Studies have shown that digital X-rays emit up to 90% less radiation than traditional X-rays, and because these X-rays are digital, they do not require any lengthy chemical processing. Your child’s X-ray scans are available on our computer screen within seconds so that we can discuss your child’s oral health and treatment plan when you come in. In addition, another benefit of digital X-rays is that if you ever need to take your child to another specialist, we can send the scans digitally so there's no paper waste.
