Dr. C. asks:
I am considering buying a digital x–ray system for my dental practice. Many of the dentists in my area have implemented digital radiography into their practice. I understand there are many benefits to having a digital system, but I am still concerned about how well the digital x–ray machines work. Is the contrast and density clear enough for me to be able to see caries well? Am I going to lose any diagnostic information with a digital system compared to a conventional one? I would like to hear from general practitioners using these systems. Was it worth the investment? Which digital radiography systems do you recommend?
