At Reliant Data Solutions, our team specializes in providing tech solutions for the dental industry, and we want to help you make your dental practice the best it can be. One of the ways we can do that is by giving you the latest and best in digital x-ray technology. While there are some dental practices that still use film photography for their diagnostic imaging, most have transitioned to digital x-rays, for many good reasons. In this article, we will go over a few of the benefits that digital x-rays provide to convince you to make this change, if you haven’t already.

Benefits of Digital X-rays

  • Image Quality. One benefit of digital x-rays over analogue is that digital photography provides clearer, sharper image quality. Clearer images allow you and your team to make more accurate diagnoses, which in turn allows you to provide better care overall. Our digital x-ray technology will not only allow you to get clearer images but will also allow you to manipulate the images to get a better idea of what you are looking at—for example, you will be able to zoom in on even the tiniest details, dial up the contrast to get a better view, and more.
  • Faster Turnarounds. Another benefit of digital x-rays is that they can be processed instantly, with no need to wait while the images are developed. This means you can give diagnoses and respond to dental problems faster, which will help you achieve better outcomes for your patients.
  • Easy Sharing. Because digital x-rays are computer files rather than physical photos, they are easier to share. If you want to ask a colleague at a different practice for their opinion, or run a patient’s x-rays by a specialist, you can do so with just a few clicks.
