X-Ray Q & A

What are digital X-rays?

Digital X-ray systems are low radiation machines designed with digital sensors to accurately capture images of the mouth and jaw. Dr. Sina frequently uses digital X-rays as part of diagnostic testing, as well as before and after performing certain dental procedures.

The image-capture process simply involves sitting in a chair and opening your mouth to allow the camera to take photos from different angles. The images are captured within seconds and Dr. Sina’s team can take a set of photos that reveal the entire mouth and jaw within minutes.

What are the benefits of digital X-rays?

Using this type of technology offers multiple benefits to patients of all ages, including:

  • Fast appointment times
  • No pain or discomfort
  • Minimal radiation exposure
  • Efficient consultations
  • Accurate results
  • Better imaging results compared to standard X-rays
  • Images easily stored on a computer
  • Easy to transfer results to other specialists

Digital X-rays allow the Kids Tooth Drs to conduct a thorough dental exam in compliance with American Dental Association recommendations.

When are digital X-rays needed?

Dr. Sina uses digital X-rays to capture high-quality and accurate images of your child’s mouth and jaw during a consultation. She also takes digital X-rays before, during, and after oral surgery to ensure optimal results with the procedure.

Your dentist might order digital X-rays before tooth extractions, if your child has a severe toothache or pain, and for emergency dental cases. Digital images allow Dr. Sina and her team to identify and diagnose oral health problems with a high degree of accuracy and confidence.

Are digital X-rays safe for my child?

Yes. One of the biggest advantages of digital X-ray machines over standard intraoral X-rays is that digital X-rays keep radiation exposure to a minimum.

The process of capturing digital images is completely painless and harmless, even for younger patients. Your child will not feel anything as the images are being taken, and Dr. Sina’s team does everything they can to make the process as seamless as possible.
