Radiographic imaging is an essential part of diagnosis, documentation, and treatment planning at any modern dental practice. Digital x-ray technologies provide numerous advantages over their film predecessors. Digital radiography systems allow clinicians and patients to instantly view images on a computer, iPad, or operatory TV screen at a higher resolution than film. Digital files can easily be shared with insurance companies or referral partners, and because they can be stored on a hard drive, they are easier to manage and find. Along with these advantages, digital x-ray technologies use less radiation than film counterparts, making it safer for patients and clinicians while also provide practices with a greener option as they eliminate the use of photo-processing chemicals. Digital imaging goes beyond just adding efficiencies to the dental imaging process because the latest technologies allow clinicians to capture images and use them in ways impossible with film. Cone-beam computed tomography systems create highly accurate 3D digital models of the target anatomy, and digital imaging software allows these images to be enhanced for improved diagnostics and greater precision in treatment planning. Digital imaging technologies are changing the dental industry and improving the lives of dental patients.
