Are digital x-rays safe?

Dr. Kai Liang considers digital dental x-rays safe for most patients. Our dental office is pleased to offer state-of-the-art digital x-rays that can reduce your exposure to radiation by as much as 90 percent compared to film x-rays.

As a family dentist, Dr. Kai Liang takes the safety of our patients very seriously. Therefore, we only recommend x-rays when it's essential, and if we think it's necessary, we will explain the reason for the x-ray and how it will benefit your oral health.

We've seen many dental technology improvements in the last few years. For example, digital x-rays have quickly become one of the most important diagnostic tools used in dentistry today.

Comprehensive visual exams are a valuable tool, but we cannot see deep inside your tooth to detect early signs of decay. Periodic x-rays provide a detailed picture that will help us guide you in important decisions about your dental care. How often we need to take x-rays depends on your current condition and dental history.

Benefits of Modern Digital Dental X-Rays

Digital dental x-rays have many benefits, including:

  • Less radiation – They emit 90 percent less radiation than traditional film x-rays. 
  • High-quality imaging – They produce high-resolution, detailed images, allowing us to identify and treat minor problems before they become big problems. 
  • Patient education – They're an educational tool because we can share the images with you so you can see exactly what we see. 
  • Cost-effective – They're cost-effective because they help us to find and treat decay and other issues in the early stages, thus reducing costly and complicated procedures.
