Why your Berkeley, CA dentists choose digital x-rays

Dr. Ruhi Sangha, Dr. Praj Kamat, and their team here at Transcendentist in Berkeley, CA want one thing for our patients – and that is the very best. While x-rays are an indispensable diagnostic tool, we do not expose our patients to high-radiation film-based dental radiography. Instead, we use state-of-the-art digital x-rays for superior diagnostic images with a safer and more comfortable patient experience.

How digital x-rays are different

Of all types of dental x-rays, the conventional film-based system remains most common. You are probably familiar with the procedure, which requires you to bite down on a film strip while the radiology technician works. This is uncomfortable for anyone, and it can be quite painful for patients with TMJ disorder or joint conditions.

Digital x-rays don’t use film at all. Instead, a small electric sensor is placed comfortably in your mouth. It can capture high-resolution images almost instantly, with minimal radiation. Because the images are digital, they can easily be enlarged, enhanced, and used for a wide variety of diagnostic purposes.

Benefits of digital dental x-rays

We choose digital x-rays because they are better for you, and better for the earth.

  • Safe – Digital x-rays involve about 90 percent less radiation exposure to the patient than film-based radiology.
  • Fast – A full mouth x-ray can be completed in moments, with no waiting to develop film.  
  • Versatile – Unlike images on film, digital x-rays are easy to copy, send by email, enlarge on screen, and load into various treatment planning software programs.
  • Comfortable – You won’t need to bite down on the sensor or keep it in your mouth very long.
  • Eco-friendly – The process of developing film x-rays involves chemical curing, which results in toxic waste. Digital x-rays don’t require chemical curing. In fact, they aren’t even printed unless a hard copy is needed, so there is rarely any waste at all.
  • High quality – Our top of the line system generates exceptionally clear and detailed images, improving diagnostic accuracy and treatment planning precision.
