Digital x-ray technology: Bakersfield dentistWHAT ARE DIGITAL X-RAYS?

Digital X-rays are one of the advanced diagnostic tools we use to provide you with the best possible care. Digital radiography has changed the way we take dental X-rays by making the process faster, more comfortable, and more convenient than ever before. Digital X-rays use a digital sensor to take images of your teeth, unlike traditional X-rays that use film. Digital X-rays use significantly less radiation than conventional film X-rays, and they require the use of no chemicals for developing the images. Our dentist can then instantly view the high-quality images on monitors right in the treatment room to provide you with efficient, accurate diagnoses and care.


Our team uses digital radiography to identify and diagnose several types of dental problems, such as:

  • Decay in between teeth.
  • Developmental abnormalities.
  • Improper tooth root positioning.
  • Cysts and abscesses.
  • Fractures in existing fillings.
  • Tumors.
  • Infection in the tooth nerves.
  • Bone loss.

We may also use digital dental X-rays to plan certain kinds of dental treatment, such as oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, dental implants, and more.


Digital x-rays are advanced, cutting-edge technologies that use electronic sensors to capture and store images of your dental anatomy on a computer. The images are produced immediately, and they can be enlarged or modified on a computer. Digital x-rays are far safer than traditional x-rays because they use 80 to 90% less radiation. As such, digital x-rays are the safest diagnostic tools available.
