North Shore Family Dental now uses digital x-ray technology.

What are the benefits of digital x-rays over traditional film x-rays?

  • Less radiation—Digital x-rays use less than half the amount of radiation than traditional film x-rays.
  • Environmentally Friendly—Digital x-rays are better for the environment since they don’t use any chemicals.
  • Faster appointments—The sensor used in digital radiography develops the images almost instantly, projecting them onto a computer screen.
  • Higher quality images—Digital x-rays can be magnified and their brightness can be adjusted for better viewing.
  • Easily transferred—Digital x-rays can be e-mailed to a dental specialist for review.

We donated our traditional x-ray equipment to the Lake Superior College Dental Hygiene Program.
