Digital technology makes x-rays safer and easier.
There is no film to develop, the images are crisp and clear, and thanks to the improved accuracy, fewer retakes are needed. This means the process isn’t just safer, it’s also more precise and saves you time.
Why do orthodontists need to take dental x-rays?
Digital x-rays allow Dr. Sonia Talley and Dr. Katie Clark to see dental and facial structures that normally aren’t visible, such as the jawbone, tooth roots and permanent teeth that haven’t erupted yet. This provides them with the information they need to develop an accurate diagnosis and plan tooth movements in a way that’s safe and efficient.
