Who’s Down For Digital Dentistry?

May 15, 2017

Should a dental practice use film x-rays or digital x-rays? We choose digital at Toronto Beach Dental, because your health is our top priority! Film x-rays date back as far as 1895! Technology has come a long way since. Although film can cost significantly less than digital… the long term exposure to radiation can be harmful to a patient’s health. With film x-rays, more radiation is needed to expose the film. With digital x-rays we are using significantly less radiation, putting you at less risk. To further understand the differences, think of a black and white TV versus a new colour HD TV. With digital x-rays, we can see at a much higher quality and accuracy not possible before. If there is an area of concern in your mouth, we can detect it faster! Digital x-rays are much quicker to take and process. So combined… with less harmful radiation and quicker processing… it becomes hard to ignore the value of digital radiology. Visit us in the Toronto beaches, and experience the benefits for yourself!
