Digital X-ray

Affinity Dental Sherwood Park uses digital X-ray technology, which is not only quick and efficient, but also much kinder to the environment than conventional radiography.

Benefits of digital X-rays

While conventional radiography uses X-ray film, digital radiography uses a digital image capture device. The benefits of going digital include the following:


Digital X-rays take seconds to process, not minutes, providing our team with the information we need quickly. This is especially important if we need to take an X-ray mid-procedure for safety.


Digital radiographs can be enhanced on the computer, allowing us to see details we were never able to see before.


When needed, such as for referrals or insurance purposes, we can print numerous copies of your digital X-ray or simply email it as an attachment.


Dental X-rays typically emit a fraction of the radiation exposure of medical X-rays, but digital X-rays also emit significantly lower radiation than traditional dental X-rays.
