for very low-level radiation exposure
In children who are very prone to caries, a detailed image gives us an early insight into their tooth decay, especially if the interdental surfaces are not visible to the naked eye.
In some cases, a digital X-ray of the jaw is useful in analysing dental development and ruling out diseases. As such, minimal radiation exposure is very important to us. The digital X-ray device we use has only 10% radiation exposure compared to conventional devices. A small dental X-ray is four times less than the natural exposure to radiation in the environment in general. So there’s no need to worry.
