Digital X-Rays

Wyngate Dental of Bethesda

Digital X-rays have been a cornerstone of dental practice for decades. Throughout the years, the technology used in dental imaging has advanced. Every new technology has required less radiation and improved image quality. Modern dentistry uses a technique known as digital x-rays to produce the highest-quality images to date. The imaging process takes less time and creates 3D images that allow Dr. Cole and the Wyngate Dental of Bethesda team to view your oral cavity from any angle.

Learn How Digital X-Rays Improve Your Dental Care

For decades the images produced by dental x-rays have been produced on physical film and hung up on lighted boards for viewing. Modern x-rays can instantly produce results following the x-ray procedure. The clarity of these images makes diagnosing oral health concerns easier than ever before. This is due, in part, to the images being rendered in a digital format instead of on a physical film. Receiving x-rays is also more comfortable than ever before, as the bite trays are no longer needed as part of the process. The process is also more environmentally friendly, as an immense amount of waste is eliminated by removing the need for dark rooms.  

Using digital x-rays, we can greatly improve your whole dental experience. Using digital x-rays has the following beneficial effects:

  • Digital x-rays can be securely stored and organized in a digital format. This means your films are never lost, and more films can be saved due to not needing a physical location to store them.

  • Hazardous waste and chemical processing are also eliminated as dark rooms are no longer necessary. Further, there is a reduction in the amount of radiation needed to produce these images, making them more eco-friendly.

  • Digital x-rays can be rendered in a variety of colors and viewed from any angle. This allows greater diagnostic accuracy and makes showing patients’ problem areas on the film easier.

  • The improved clarity of the films also makes identifying developing oral health concerns earlier, allowing Dr. Cole to take action earlier and prevent costly treatments down the road.

These are just some of the reasons that Wyngate Dental of Bethesda relies on the advanced imaging technology available with digital x-rays.
