Can digital X-rays be harmful?

Digital X-rays are actually healthier, more secure and more comfortable for the patient. Moreover, they can be produced in no time. So your time spent in the dental office is also reduced. In fact, digital X-rays are absolutely eco-friendly as there are no toxic wastes released into the environment, unlike the conventional X-rays that require developing or fixing solutions which are discarded after use.
