Dental X-rays are an integral and essential part of dental diagnosis and treatment planning.
No matter how experienced the dentist is, X-rays are essential. Most X-ray systems have been digitalised, which means X-ray sensors instead of X-ray film are now used in most modern dental pratices.
The sensors instantly produce images of the structures in and around the mouth without having to develop, fix and process X-ray film – a time-consuming, tedious process.
The digital sensors are exposed very briefly by the X-ray machine or camera, resulting in an instantaneous image on a PC monitor.
This image can be manipulated in a number of ways, using an X-ray software programme.
