How digital dental x-rays work and why they are better

Dr. Bouzida uses digital dental x-rays to provide fast and more accurate diagnoses leading to an even better dental care. The process of digitally capturing an image is much faster, safer and more comfortable for the patient. The digital dental x-ray system is more sensitive than dental x-ray film systems, so your exposure to x-rays is cut by as much as 90 percent.  The large, color-enhanced images on the ceiling monitor let you see what your dentist sees, so it's easier for you to understand how your dentist will treat your teeth.  Your dental checkups take less time, and it's fun to watch this system work! Most patients are amazed.

How Digital Dental X-Rays Work:  We place a small sensor in your mouth. The sensor is connected to a computer by a thin wire. Then, an x-ray beam is sent through your teeth and into the sensor, which records the image of your teeth and sends it to the computer screen. The sensor can then be repositioned to photograph other sections of your teeth.
