X-rays are a key diagnostic tool for dentists. In modern times, digital x-rays are the means to diagnose many dental problems. A small sensor transfers the image to the computer screen within seconds. Subsequently, the x-ray can be edited, archived or printed.
The greatest advantage of digital x-ray compared to photographic film is that radiation exposure of the patient is reduced 1/10, the image can be seen faster and the patient can see the x-ray on a high-resolution screen, so that he better understands the problem.
