Digital radiography offers an immediate image with a significantly reduced amount of radiation. We use digital imaging for routine decay detecting, panoramic x-rays and even 3 dimensional cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). Extra-oral bitewings are taken outside of the mouth and are an excellent alternative for any patient with a sensitive gag response. CBCT is used to diagnose a fracture that cannot be seen on 2D radiographs and to aid in the exact placement of implants. This truly fascinating advancement in dental imaging is not available in most general dentists’ office.
