Advancements in technology have enabled the usage of digital radiography in dentistry, a form of x-ray that uses sensors. A digital image capture device is used with added advantages of preview and elimination of lengthy film processing that takes time and is not economically viable. Digital x-rays have the ability to reduce x-ray exposure and improve diagnostic proficiency. The use of harsh chemicals and other toxic materials associated with traditional film development is eliminated. Digital radiography is also cost-effective.

At Dental Solutions Bangalore, the decision to use digital radiography equipment was with an objective to provide improved diagnostics and care to their patients. It is attempted to realistically fulfil objectives such as saving valuable time and adopting safe treatment measures by eliminating chemical processing, reducing dosages of radiations to the patients, to provide state-of-the-art treatment, and to enable integration of radiographic images with digital images. Diagnostic accuracies are drastically improved with the machine. One of the main advantages of DR remains that radiation dosages are reduced at least by 70% compared to film-based radiography.
Digital Radiography is an excellent alternative as against traditional x-rays with amazing precision and offers 256 shades of grey as against 16-25 shades available in conventional radiology. It offers good picture quality thus easing diagnosis. Digital radiography can also be safely used on pregnant women with appropriate permissions from the gynaecologist.
