Digital X-Rays Canberra

Digital radiographs are 2D images that are taken with the help of sensor-phosphor plates, scanned and stored on a computer.

X-rays allow dentists to see inside the tooth structure and jaw-bone. They help the dentists diagnose common problems such as cavities, gum disease, infections or other pathology. Without taking X-rays, these problems may go undiagnosed and complications can arise.

Why are digital X-rays important?

We use this technology because there are a number of benefits for our patients.

Some of the benefits are:

  • Better and quicker diagnosis.
  • Less exposure to radiation.
  • Less damage to the environment from harsh chemicals and waste.

Better diagnosis

Unlike traditional film, digital X-ray images can be enhanced to allow us to make an extremely accurate diagnosis. We can magnify images, sharpen them or colour them to help us distinguish different structures. This means that your treatment is going to be more precise than ever before. We can store images on your digital file and bring them up quickly and easily at a later appointment. It’s also possible to superimpose images taken at different times, making it easy to monitor any changes.

Less radiation

Digital X-rays reduce exposure to radiation by up to 80 percent compared with traditional film-based X-rays.  This technology allows us to minimise exposure to both patients and operators.

Better for the environment

Digital X-ray technology allows us to be more environmentally responsible because it does not use the harsh chemicals needed for traditional X-rays. We also no longer need to take up as much space for storing film X-rays, with all the heating and lighting associated with it, further reducing our environmental footprint.
