What is digital imaging?

At Wright Smile Center of Woodbridge, we are devoted to diagnosing and treating dental conditions as quickly as possible. Digital X-rays take clearer images in a shorter amount of time and offer several other benefits.

What are the benefits of digital X-rays?

Unlike traditional X-rays, digital X-rays do not require a dark room to be developed. In fact, they develop almost instantly and are immediately sent directly to your dentist’s computer screen. From there, Dr. Rita D. Wright will be able to enlarge and enhance the image to reach the best diagnostic conclusion. Because the images are saved in an electronic format, our dentist can easily send it to a specialist, if necessary without the travel time required for mailing. These electronic images can also be printed, allowing you to take a copy with you if you wish.

Other benefits of digital imaging include the fact that the images are clearer and taken in a shorter amount of time with less radiation. A major benefit of digital imaging is known as subtraction radiography, which allows Dr. Rita D. Wright to track only changes in your mouth. This allows our team to notice very small changes.
