Since these are small and easily maneuverable, dentists can see angles in the mouth that cannot be normally viewed with an unaided eye.
Digital X-ray does not use traditional photographic film, instead, it uses digital x-ray sensors to produce radiographic images instantly on a computer. As a result, digital x-rays are safer as it produces 80% less radiation than traditional x-rays.
