How dental x-ray machines work
X-ray imaging equipment uses a combination of technology and ergonomic design to maintain the safety and comfort of the patient. The equipment uses a pair of electrode-conducting devices inside of a tube, which is then directed at the part of the body that the dentist wants to image. A positively-charged anode brings electrons into the tube, and it only takes a matter of nanoseconds to achieve this. Any longer and the patient risks exposure to too much radiation. The resulting image that is printed is typically like a film negative, in which light will expose the areas captured by the x-ray.
About dental x-ray machines
Extensive research and development has been made in order to protect the patient’s safety, as well as the safety and ease of the operators controlling the devices. This technology is advanced enough to be able to read x-ray images without exposing the patient to too much radiation. The digital switch allows the assistant to control the intensity and duration of the x-ray beam, which is often determined by the type of tooth or area of the skull that needs attention. X-ray imaging machines are successful in helping the dentist see the results of the mouth without exposing the patient to too high of a dose.
