Digital X-Ray Technology

at Hurst Dental

Why Do We Need Dental X-Rays?

Dental X-rays enable dentists to see decay inside teeth that would not be visible to the naked eye. This allows us to act earlier against cavities, which is much better for the teeth. However, X-rays do expose patients to radiation, which is why you always wear a lead apron when the images are being taken. Thanks to advances in technology, there is now a safer way to take these images.
