Instead of taking and developing films as we did in the past, digital x-rays are immediately available to us and easy to display on the television screens in our treatment rooms. They provide a sharp, clear image that makes it easy for Dr. Godinez to detect concerns like tooth decay or cavities as early as possible. They also emit up to 80 percent less radiation, which makes them safer for our patients.
Since we don't have to use chemicals to develop films anymore, digital x-rays are also much safer for the environment. It's also a lot easier and more efficient to share these images with any of your medical providers we may be working with.
